2Michaels create fresh, effortless interiors that have enough style for TriBeCa and enough elegance for Park Avenue. The two Michaels are Jayne and Joan, sisters and creative partners who founded their eponymous firm in 2001. Though they are comfortable working in a range of styles, the pair always bring a sense of sophistication and modernism, whether that means a careful editing of traditional elements or a warm take on modern. Their interiors often feature contemporary art, as well as pieces influenced by the sisters’ shared expertise for European 20th century design.
Founded after the Michaels sisters graduated from FIT and Parsons, their firm has grown in profile over the years, earning respect by both the press and their peers. 2Michaels's projects are usually focused in New York City, which suits their graceful urbanity but increasingly they have turned their attention to the East End where their love of water and nature has found new meaning.
Clients say that the two sisters are extremely knowledgeable, artistic, low-pressure, charming and fun to work with. Clients who bond with Jayne and Joan hire them for multiple projects and sing their praises uptown and downtown.
