The Best New York Interior Design Service

Looking to work with an interior designer in New York? Here are 10 reasons to think beyond traditional interior design firms and try out online interior design with Modsy.

1. See Designs in Your Exact Room in 3D

While Pinterest and mood boards are great for interior design inspiration, when you work with our online designers, you’ll actually get life-like images of your room fully designed in 3D. No more wondering how furniture, paint, and accents might look together. You’ll see it all in your exact room, expertly designed in 3D!

If you live in a busy city like New York, precision is a must whether you’re decorating a shoebox apartment in Soho or a brownstone in Brooklyn. So it’s easy to see why our realistic 3D room designs at Modsy are a popular choice for New Yorkers looking for a New York interior design service that’s easy-to-use, efficient, and exact!

2. Work with a New York City Interior Designer

Our Modsy online platform lets you work with a designer from anywhere, no matter your location. We have designers all across the country, from Brooklyn to San Francisco to places in between. This ensures you’ll work with the best interior designers who are familiar with your location, lifestyle, and needs. So if you live in New York, our interior designers will be sure to take all the factors of living in a bustling metropolitan city into consideration!

What’s it like working with an interior designer online?

The whole process is easier than you think! You’ll start by taking a style quiz that we developed with our designers to understand your interior design style and specific project needs. We’ll ask a range of questions about your budget, style, who lives in your space, and your design struggles. This ensures our designer has all the info to bring your project to life and design a space that checks all your boxes.

Since it’s is fully online, you’ll have access to your designer anywhere you are. You’ll also be able to message your interior designer about their designs and shop pieces you love, all from your phone or computer. So if you’re on vacation, traveling for work, bogged down by a busy week, or when life just happens, your designer can keep things going for your project!

3. Cutting-Edge 3D Rendering Technology Makes the Process Easy

Say goodbye to tedious measuring! We’ve taken interior design to the next level with our iOS app. Simply use it to scan your room or snap a few photos. We’ll then turn them into a custom 3D rendering of your exact room—from the crown molding right down to every outlet and detail of your home.

Using your 3D model, our designers will start designing your space with furniture and accents that are perfectly to scale. You’ll be able to see everything in your room before you commit to buying a single piece. The best part? Our 3D technology also allows our designers to expedite the design process to turn around your final designed room in photo-real 3D in no time. And it’s much more affordable than a traditional interior design firm!

4. Reviews of NYC Interior Designers Speak for Themselves

Of course, we think our online interior design services are pretty amazing. But you’d probably rather hear it from some of our happy clients in New York City.

Seb and Nic wanted a calming ambiance in their Manhattan apartment to escape the chaos of busy city life.

Seeing our space in 3D was a real wow moment for us. We really liked the design options right away!

– Seb and Nic

Lauren wanted her first New York City studio apartment to reflect her style while still making the most of the tiny space.

Before Modsy, I had an empty studio where I felt too timid to decorate alone! NOW I LOVE BEING HOME.

– Lauren M.

Alberto and his partner needed furniture that had the right scale and design style for their airy New York City duplex.

We loved that the 3D designs we received were filled with items from popular brands like West Elm and Design Within Reach.

– Alberto A.

Jeremy found himself working from home in an empty apartment with no time to decorate. With Modsy, he got the organized and relaxing space he craved.

My apartment makes me feel better than I’ve ever felt in any place I’ve lived. Especially during the pandemic, it’s been so important to me that I feel comfortable and at home in my apartment. I couldn’t be happier with the design and the pieces picked out for me.

– Jeremy J.

5. See Expert Solves for Tricky New York Spaces

Whether you’re living the dream in a Central Park apartment on the Upper West Side, moving into your first New York City studio in Brooklyn, or decorating a family townhouse on the Upper East Side, living in New York comes with some serious design challenges.

But don’t worry, we’re here to help! Our New York interior designers are experts when it comes to tackling the quirky NYC interior—be it a tiny apartment space for one, a roommate sharing situation, or a multi-floor family home. They’ve seen it all and they’re ready to design a space that works for you and your New York City lifestyle!

Simply snap a few photos to capture your space in 3D, and they’ll get right to work designing your space with furniture and accents to scale. They’ll send your final room in photo-real 3D in no time, and you’ll be able to shop the exact pieces you love straight from the images using your phone or computer. It’s really that easy!

6. More Affordable Than Traditional Design Firms

Let’s face it: Most people can’t afford the best interior designers or the cool boutique interior design firm featured in magazines. And when it comes to traditional interior designers in New York, they’re notoriously expensive. We’re talking several hundred dollars for an initial consultation, and then usually a $50-$150 hourly rate. That’s also before you spend on all the furniture and decor for your space!

We approach it all differently at Modsy. Our prices are fixed and transparent: You pay per room, not per hour. Our design packages start at $159 per room, which makes designing a lot more affordable!

7. Enjoy Unlimited Design Revisions (Seriously!)

What if you don’t like your designs? Don’t worry. We offer unlimited revisions! (Although we’re confident you won’t need that many *wink*) This is simply one more thing that sets Modsy apart from other interior design services.

No matter your concerns, our interior designers are sure to work with you to get you a final design you love. Once you’ve completed your style quiz and your 3D room model is ready, your interior designer will send you initial designs based on your needs. From there, you’ll be able to work one-on-one with your interior designer to tweak and adjust your design until it’s 100% what you want.

Most Modsy customers go through 2-3 revisions before landing on a design they love. Our unlimited revisions are complimentary, so there are no extra charges or hidden fees. It’s all the more reason to take your time exploring furniture options and working through all the changes with your Modsy interior designer until you get a final design you love.

8. Try Some Popular New York Interior Design Styles

New York is all about letting your personal style shine. That goes for your design style for your NYC interior also. If you’re not sure what your design style is, your Modsy interior designer will help you bring it to life in your space. While every New York City space is uniquely different, there are some design styles that are especially popular in the city. Check them out below:

Modern Industrial

Equal parts sleek, streamlined, and sophisticated, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most popular design styles among Modsy clients in New York. With the Modern Industrial New York City look, you can expect to find clean-lined furnishings, edgy art and accents, and high-contrast color palettes that are effortlessly cool but still comfy and inviting.


Classic to the tee, this style is popular for its timelessness and tried-and-true approach to comfort. The traditional New York room is all about big upholstered foundations, refined wood pieces, and all the ornate accents and finishing touches that give the room classic elegance. Think Manhattan Pre-War apartment right down to the crown molding!

Chic Glamour

Fashionable without sacrificing comfort, this look is best described as the glamorous downtown apartment. It’s got lots of luster, a bit of edge, and tons of personality. The chic NYC interior has elegant velvet pieces, metallic accents, and no shortage of trendy art and bright pops of colors. It also always has a few vintage pieces that never go out of style.
