First of all, let’s meet the renowned New York City based Interior Designer firm – 2Michaels LLC! The design company was created in 2001, by the sisters, Jayne and Joan Michaels, who share the passion for modern architecture and design. Today, Vintage Industrial Style Blog will open the door of one of the company’s residential project – a beautiful contemporary house in New York!
The sister’s design sensibility has evolved over the years due to multiple influences: Palm Springs, Milan, where they “were exposed to such mid-century geniuses as Franco Albini and Gio Ponti”. With several design projects developed national and internationally, 2Michaels Interiors are fresh, timeless and unique. The company offers services in the interior design field – since the very fist sketch to the final result – and, recently, “Recently, 2Michaels has transitioned into luxury Real Estate ventures, working with Flank Architects and Pandiscio Co in the interior design of “The Abingdon”, a boutique residential complex.
Fans of mid-century modern design, today, we’ll show you this beautiful house in New York!
“In 2010, 2Michaels was recognized as a design visionary for “Generation Next” by Departures Magazine. In 2011, it was selected as one of the “Top 20 Designers to Watch” in Traditional Home magazine. Also in 2011 and 2012, 2Michaels was included in the “Top 50 Designers” issue in New York Spaces magazine”
This is a family residence, designed by the amazing team of 2Michaels. You can see a contemporary architecture with clean lines, a textured black wall giving it a vintage touch, and of course, the best feature of all: an impressive windowed wall, that guarantees natural light inside the house – we all know the importance of Sunlight in our lives ☀️
Actually, layering plenty of light throughout the room is one of the main features of contemporary design, an element imported from another aesthetic, in this case, from mid-century modern design. The contemporary agency for interior design, knows exactly the best materials, concepts, lighting and furnishing elements the clients envision, to provide them a final result that is the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality.
Specialized in a style that is hard to define, today we’ll try to show you how the company did its best with this contemporary residence. Contemporary means ‘at the moment’, which makes this style particularly hard to define. Dating back to the 1970s, this style is unique because it borrows elements from many other aesthetics. In it, you can see nods to modern, traditional, art deco and even futuristic design. At the end, it means that contemporary style is always evolving, and the team does its best to be always updated with the latest design trends. Nowadays, it can be defined by neutral colors, clean a curved lines and minimalism.
Here we can also see the mix between different materials, such as patterns, and mid-century lighting and furnishing, adding a special glow to the living room décor!

Another feature that we can see in the entire house décor is the use of plants. This idea has health, environmental, and economic benefits, and although its name was coined in recent history, indicators of biophilia design have been seen in architecture from as far back as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
The appearance of the natural world, with its rich diversity of shapes, colors, and life, is universally appreciated and brings you several benefits, such as:
– Reduces stress levels
– Increases productivity
– Reduces sick days
– Makes workplaces more attractive
– Reduces pollution and cleans the air by reducing noise levels
– Boosts creativity levels
Open Spaces are another architecture feature that have been one of the must haves of 2020! Kitchen Islands with pendant lamps, creating the sense of barrier and also adding a cocktail vintage bar look!
Once again, the windowed walls are giving natural life and light to this mid-century modern bedroom décor. The bedroom is probably the most important room of the house, and it is the one that really has to reflect ourselves, because it is where we charge the batteries for the daily tasks.
2Michaels Interiors did an amazing job by adding a dramatic contrast between the color of the walls and design accessories.
