A leader in NYC interiors, Michael Cox—co-founder of Foley & Cox Design—has environed the design for premier residences in the city, as well as the Hamptons, Connecticut, Europe, the Caribbean, and beyond.
Rather than ascribing to a specific style or trend, the designers at Foley & Cox are known for their bespoke approach, taking creative cues from clients through the firm’s lens of comfort and luxury.
"Interestingly, the opposite of a defined aesthetic has been fundamental to the work of our firm. Each client, each location, each architectural style is carefully considered and incorporated into our design development – therefore rendering each project distinct and bespoke. While we have defined processes and systems to manage the myriad of evolving elements and specifications to keep a project on schedule and on budget, we allow the individuality of each client to influence the design aesthetics – so that every interior is a unique reflection of the homeowner." --- Michael Cox
In a recent sit-down with Brown Harris Stevens Agent Suzanne Werson, Cox discussed how he and his firm navigate Manhattan renovations, his approach to work, and more.

Enlisting the expertise of a professional architect and contractor to collaborate with the interior design firm clarifies and streamlines the process and establishes a realistic timeline.
