People often ask us how J+G Design came to be. Our Story officially began at Housing Works’ annual Design on a Dime event, where we were both participating in different capacities. Realizing that we were “related” through the family tree of design- both working for designers who hailed from Albert Hadley- we had an immediate and undeniable chemistry, stemming from our appreciation for classic design. With “uptown sensibility with downtown flair” as our mantra, J+G Design was established in 2013 in New York City.
We like to describe our aesthetic as traditional design as we see it through our lens- equal parts tailored and eclectic, glamorous and relaxed, bold and subtle. It is this unique balance that we strive for in every project.
Recent design projects include a handsome loft in SoHo, a whimsical pied-à-terre in Gramercy, a modern brownstone in historic Harlem, the new and improved Avery Boardman showroom in NYC’s D&D building, a gut renovation in Connecticut, and a swank apartment in Washington, D.C.
J+G Design was named “Five Under 30” and “Next Big Names” by Lonny Magazine, highlighted as a “Rising Star” in New York Cottages & Gardens, and has been featured in Elle Décor, House Beautiful, New York Magazine, New York Cottages and Gardens, Curbed, and Rue Magazine.
To bring our story full circle, we were honored to participate in the 10th annual Design on Dime for the first time as a company. We consider this to be one of the most meaningful and rewarding milestones for J+G Design.
