2Michaels LLC is a New York City based Interior Design firm founded by sisters Jayne and Joan Michaels. The Michaels 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.2Michaels Interiors are fresh, effortless and timeless. With their expertise in 20th century Art and Design, they translate the needs and desires of each client into beautiful, timeless and livable spaces.
Established in 2001, 2Michaels has both artistic and business-minded clients, ranging from downtown playwrights to midtown law firms. 2Michaels and its principals are inspired by working with their clients and treat the process as one of collaboration, not dictation.

Also in 2011 and 2012, 2Michaels was included in the "Top 50 Designers" issue in New York Spaces magazine.
