Exclusive Interview: Trends in Interior Design for 2014 | Best Design Projects



Every week, Best Design Projects would like to share the best exclusive interviews around US to inspire our readers with the best interior design projects!

Today we will show you the company 2Michaels LLC that is a New York City based Interior Design firm founded by sisters Jayne and Joan Michaels.

Take look in their inspirations:

“All of our projects start with a concept.  We spend a lot of time researching, usually by going to museums, art galleries, watching films, pouring over books, magazines and  internet sites. We challenge each other with ideas and inspirations. It’s dynamic and free flowing.. Sometimes the concept comes right away and sometimes not.. We both know when we’ve hit upon something.. It’s incredibly exciting.” – Jayne

“We love Italian and Swedish design from the 1930’s-70’s and have collected furniture by Gio Ponti, Franco Albini, Carl Malstem, A.E Hjorth, Kerstin Horlin-Holmquist, etc.

Our style is “undecorated”, artful, relaxed, comfortable and rather spare.  Water and nature inspires us.”

“Photography  is a passion. We collect photography and  have recently begun to photograph ourselves. Instagram is a great vehicle for that passio!”

“Our clients wanted a bedroom that wasn’t “match- matchy”.. We found different side tables, lamps, the desk is Swedish 1940’s, chair is by Nakashima.

We found the art at auction.”


Top trends in interior design for 2014 by Jayne M.:

“We’ve seen a lot of  gold and brass, metallic wall papers, branch type chandeliers..

And in retail design?

More luxe.”
