New York City has plenty of excellent interior designers, but only a handful of them rise to the top. If you want to see some of New York’s best interior spaces, check out work from these five designers.
Amanda Nisbet is a New York interior designer at the top of her game. After starting her own design firm in 1998, her work has appeared in publications such as:
- The New York Times
- Town & Country
- Traditional Home
- New York Spaces
- Oprah at Home
She released her own interior design book in 2012. Nisbet’s interiors respect classic design standards, but they also reach beyond expected qualities by mixing patterns, textures, and colors.
Brad Ford started his interior design company, Brad Ford I.D., in 1998. He has become popular for his residential spaces. His work emphasizes functionality and elegance. His name has appeared on Top 10 Lists in New York Magazine and New York Spaces magazine. The International Furnishings and Design Association listed Ford as one of the Rising Stars of Interior Design.

Tom Scheerer has created beautiful spaces in New York City since 1985. More recently, he has worked on large projects in the Bahamas. Many individuals and companies want Scheerer’s design skills because he works within any style. He uses modern furniture to create wonderful interior spaces in New York City, but he also remodels an island style hotel just as effectively.
He stands out as a versatile designer who has the ability to capture the visions of his clients. Scheerer’s work has appeared in magazines such as House & Garden, House Beautiful, and Architectural Digest. House Beautiful also included Sheerer on its list of top designers in the United States.
Thom Filicia mixes modern and traditional elements to create unique spaces. His abilities have made him more than an interior designer. He has also offered design advice on many television shows, including “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “Ellen,” “The View,” and “Good Morning America.”
Filicia received a Best Eco-Residential Design Interior award from Interior Design Magazine for creating the interior of Riverhouse, Manhattan’s first certified green luxury condominium.
Eric Cohler’s talent lies in his ability to mix high and low design concepts to create eclectic spaces. His talent for mixing textures and colors in unusual ways has earned him the nickname Mixmaster. While based in New York City, Cohler’s design firm does work all around the world, including Asia and the Caribbean.
Cohler writes for House Beautiful, The New York Times, and Traditional Home. House Beautiful named him one of America’s Top 100 Interior Designers. He has an Excellence Award from the International Furnishings and Design Association. In addition, he has appeared on numerous television shows.
Much can be learned from the eclectic styles of New York’s best interior designers. Because the city is such a mismatch of culture and style, designers can use this diversity to their advantage to design residential and commercial interiors to fit any taste.
