WHO: A native of suburban Detroit, Jennifer Weisberg has been attracted to beautiful objects and interiors for as long as she can remember. “It was an innate interest,” says the Manhattan-based interior designer. “As a teenager, I would browse multimillion-dollar real estate listings on the Sotheby’s website for fun.”

WHAT: Dreamy, sophisticated spaces that incorporate elegant materials, abstract patterns, and colorful accent pieces, all tailored to clients’ specific desires. “I think of design as creating a form of living art,” says Weisberg, “and it wouldn’t be art if I were reproducing the same thing for every project.”

WHEN: In 2011, upon receiving a BFA in interior design from the now-shuttered Illinois Institute of Art–Chicago, Weisberg went on to work for a number of residential firms in the Windy City before fulfilling her long-term goal of moving to Manhattan five years later. “I always wanted to be in New York,” she says. “There is an abundance of beautiful architecture and art here, and there’s so much more design freedom.” Weisberg established JLW Interiors in 2017.

WHERE: Recent projects include a glam, yet edgy revamp of an Upper East Side condo, a bachelor’s Chelsea loft featuring a monochromatic palette and graphic patterns, and the gut renovation of a 3,500-square-foot prewar co-op overlooking Central Park. Designed for avid art collectors, the latter is kitted out with furniture from Ralph Pucci International and custom Fromental wallcoverings.

WHY: “Every furnishing, objet, or piece of art has meaning,” says Weisberg, “and helping clients select and put these things together is what I love most about what I do.”
