GRADE New York is an award-winning, full-service design firm led by Thomas Hickey and Edward Yedid. Since 2004, the firm's design approach has been and continues to be a holistic one, rooted in the belief that integrating architecture and interior design from the outset creates the most beautiful, balanced and cohesive solutions.
We have an obsession with creating contemporary living spaces for the modern lifestyle. Our design process is grounded in historical precedent and informed by a global perspective and shared vision for what sophisticated living should be—ordered, inviting, artful and enduring. We are driven by innovation and collaboration with designers, suppliers, artists and galleries to provide a seamlessly executed product—from concept to completion—translating individual needs, desires and aspirations into sophisticated, materially sensuous environments that exude order and artistic cool.
As a leader in designing luxury experiences, from retail and hospitality to residential, we specialize in New York City apartments, lofts, landmark residential conversions and large-scale residential real estate developments, in addition to designing homes in the Greater New York area—including Westchester, Connecticut and the Hamptons—and beyond, with projects in Miami, Los Angeles and a number of international cities.
GRADE has received several awards for architecture and interior design and has been featured in numerous shelter publications and newspapers including Hamptons Cottages & Gardens, Galerie Magazine, Architectural Digest online, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
