Since forming their practice in 1999, Will Meyer and Gray Davis have designed some 200 private and public spaces that epitomize hip luxury style. Their interiors are as dazzling and dramatic as they are comfortable and welcoming—a carefully calibrated balancing act that has become their trademark and won them a loyal clientele. As furniture designer David Netto says in his foreword, “Their style—while original—seems inevitable, and after you see a project by Meyer Davis you say to yourself, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ ” Made to Measure tells the story of their ascent into the upper echelon of American design and shares their firm’s philosophy and process. Illustrated with hundreds of stunning photographs, plans, and drawings, the book explores the symbiosis between their residential and commercial projects and shows how Meyer Davis has redefined modern luxury.
