ABOUT THE BOOK
Foley & Cox is a New York-based interior design firm renowned for serene spaces subtly layered with color and texture that create a sense of welcome and comfort. Taking creative cues directly from their clients–their perceptions, preferences, and passions–the firm creates serene interiors infused with personal style.
This elegant book presents 24 homes, ranging from elegant prewar apartments in Manhattan to retreats in the Hamptons and summer places along the coast of New England and in Europe, and even to a private jet and a yacht that cruises the Mediterranean. What unites these spaces is an overall balance and elegance, infused with luxurious fabrics in subtle tonal variations and a judicious use of highlight color, often in the artwork and accessories. Founder Michael Cox is a master at creating settings for art collections and selecting distinctive vintage pieces that add a sophisticated touch to the rooms.
Michael Cox co-founded foley&cox in 2002, and he now directs a firm dedicated to global luxury residential projects. Cox brings a breadth of expertise in interior architecture, furniture design, and global sourcing resulting in distinctive and personalized interiors that reflect the lifestyle of the firm’s clientele. His knowledge and taste are evident as well in the curated selection of furniture and objects displayed at foley&cox HOME, the firm’s retail store in Hudson, New York.
