Drake/Anderson, led by award-winning designers Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson, creates sophisticated interiors that are luxurious, refined, and always have a touch of the unexpected. Dynamic eclecticism is the hallmark of the New York-based firm, whose work forges a perfect balance between timelessness and today. At the heart of every project is the belief that the best décor expresses personality and place. The resulting environments are inviting, delightful, and above all resolutely livable.
A fixture in New York’s glittering social scene, Jamie Drake is the author of some of this country’s most glamorous spaces, having completed countless interiors for an impressive roster of clients, including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Madonna.
A graduate of Parsons School of Design, Drake believes that the best décor expresses personality and place, and to that end, he creates environments that are as glamorous as they are inviting and resolutely livable. His recent commercial work includes a from-the-ground-up medical facility in Florida and a private foundation in New York City.
He has been a member of ELLE DECOR ’s prestigious A-List since 2012, and was recently named to the 2018 Architectural Digest AD100 list, a distinction he has held since 2012. His numerous other industry honors also include his Fashion Group International Night of Stars Award for Interior Design, his induction to the ASID College of Fellows, his designation by House Beautiful as a Master Class designer and his induction into Interior Design magazine’s Interior Design Hall of Fame. Drake, who received a Partnership for the Homeless Director’s Award in 1996, has long been deeply involved in good causes. He has been a Housing Works supporter for more than a decade and has twice created vignettes for Design On A Dime. Drake currently serves as the Chair of The Alpha Workshops, where he also has been a board member for many years.
Caleb Anderson, co-founder of the innovative, multi-disciplinary interior design partnership Drake/Anderson, brings a polished sensibility and unique design vision to the New York City-based firm. Known for the effortless skill with which he pairs custom creations with furnishings of seemingly disparate styles and periods, Anderson’s work consistently results in rooms that are witty, elegant, and unexpected.
Drake/Anderson projects include sophisticated, glamorous interiors in residential towers from New York to Shanghai, as well as sprawling Hamptons estates, cutting-edge medical facilities, and non-profit foundation headquarters. In 2018, Drake/Anderson was once again included among the top designers and architects in both Architectural Digest’s AD100 list and the Elle Décor A-List.
