Each project designed by Joe Nahem brings out another aspect of his talented eye. His design signature lies in the ability, from the first meeting on, to dig deep into his client’s minds, to realize their ideas, needs, and individual tastes. The results are luxuriously comfortable, elegant, and livable homes for active families: spaces that reflect the people who dwell in them.
Born and raised in New York City, Joe and his late business partner, Tom Fox, started Fox-Nahem Design in their early twenties. After three decades of experience, Joe, along with his dedicated team, have loyal vendors who help bring to life his original designs, specific to each and every project. Changing accordingly with the times, without falling victim to fads, he curates rare vintage pieces, as well as works with artists, craftspeople and artisans from all over the world. He has commissioned hand loomed fabrics from Switzerland, custom woven rugs from South Africa, and beautifully crafted metal cabinetry made in Brooklyn.
“Decorating is intimate and personal. As a designer, you have to be able to let go of your ego and design a personalized space that is going to reflect the people who live there”
Fox-Nahem Associates is a personal, client oriented, hands-on firm. Always using discretion to protect privacy, many clients come back for additional projects. Overseeing every facet to turn key completion, from architecture to bed linens, the firm’s projects finish on time and within the budget.
