JayJeffers - The Studio creates luxurious but livable homes. Spaces with soul and atmosphere that feel collected over time.
From an 800-square-foot apartment in San Francisco’s Millennium Tower to a 6,000-square-foot Fifth Avenue pre-war apartment in Manhattan to a 25,000 square-foot estate in Silicon Valley, JayJeffers offers a full range of concept-to-installation services including interior architecture, custom furniture design, art and antiques acquisitions and decoration. Seamlessly executing commissions all over the Bay Area, California, New York, Texas and Florida, Jeffers personally oversees each project with the support of a dedicated 10-person team–a staff with over 50 years of combined professional experience. Equally adept at crafting a timeless gentleman’s den with the masculine air of a classic whiskey bar or a modern lady-of-the-house’s home office in shades of persimmon and Balenciaga pink, JayJeffers offers livable luxury and a harmonious mixture of contemporary, vintage and antique furnishings, art and accessories that feel collected over time. Every project is a collaborative venture that addresses form and function, architecture and aesthetics in a process individually tailored for each client’s unique needs. “A house has to reflect the personalities of the people who live in it and their sense of style,” Jay says, “not the person who designed it.”
