Annette Jaffe

Annette Jaffe founded her interior design business two decades ago and her portfolio includes high end homes, hotels and large residential developments.

Annette’s success is the result of a rare combination in her field - creative and artistic vision coupled with a strong business acumen. Her ability to see and design space for multiple uses and versatile design sensibility results in projects that are architecturally sophisticated, visually stunning, truly functional and always comfortable.

One of New York’s best interior designers, Annette began her interior design business over two decades ago after the sale of her widely successful decorative home furnishings business where she designed, manufactured and wholesaled a full line of decorative home furnishing that was sold at major retailers throughout the country.

As one of the better recognized firms in the New York area, Annette has built a highly professional team that covers the full range of services including project inception, full service design and drafting services, collaboration with team professionals, procurement services, project oversight and a billing structure that is fully transparent.
