2Michaels is a New York City based Interior Design firm founded by sisters Jayne and Joan Michaels. Their passion for modern architecture and design started in Palm Springs, California and developed in Milan, Italy, where they were exposed to such mid-century geniuses as Franco Albini and Gio Ponti. Their design sensibility continued to evolve at Parson's School of Design and F.I.T where they earned degrees in Interior Design.
Established in 2001, 2Michaels has both artistic and business-minded clients, ranging from downtown playwrights to a midtown law firm. They are inspired by working with their clients and treat the process as one of collaboration, not dictation. Their work is characterized as being graceful, thoughtful and effortless.
In 2010 2Michaels were recognized as design visionaries for "Generation Next" by Departures Magazine. In October of that year, the sisters created an "Urban Sanctuary" in their first room at the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse. It garnered much attention from both the press and the public and was described by one writer as "a poem in a room". In addition, Jayne and Joan were recently selected as "Top 20 Designers to Watch in 2011" for the first on-line venture between Traditional Home and Lonny Magazine. Also in 2011 2Michaels were included in the "Top 50 Designers" issue in New York Spaces magazine.
