2Michaels is a New York City based Interior Design firm founded by sisters Jayne and Joan Michaels. The children of an aerospace engineer and a painter, they inherited their mother's artistic spirit and their father's obsession for detail. 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 firms. They are inspired by working with their clients and treat the process as one of collaboration, not dictation. Their work as been described as "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".
