Charles & Co is an interior design studio based in New York with residential and commercial projects in Europe and North America. We founded the company on a simple principle: Carefully listen to our clients and the surrounding environment so that our designs are natural reflections of both. Our approach relies on design before decoration, honest materials and collaborating with expert craftsmen to create a depth and substance that goes beyond photo ready to become living ready.

We collaborate early and often with clients and their architects to inform the fundamental identity of a space whether it’s a small scale residential renovation or new construction of a large scale commercial project.

 Our flexibility allows us to work with a range of clients from those who have a strong vision of what they would like to achieve to those who look to us to create a vision that resonates with their needs and lifestyle. 

We believe every challenging project is made simpler through candor and transparency.
