The Feel is a fine-art-focused interior design studio whose visceral approach to shaping space balances the functional with the fanciful.
The Feel approaches each project with a spirit of adventure and inquisitiveness. We draw from our clients’ needs, desires and dreams, as well as our collective imaginations, to create striking spaces that feel sublime. Led by contemporary artists, we execute every project with clarity and care. Communication, collaboration and creativity are the values that drive and enliven us.
