Doug Meyer opened his design studio with his brother Gene in 2004. Since the brothers joined creative forces, the Kentucky natives, now based in New York City and Miami, have gained a reputation for a unique range of products from fabrics to rugs, furniture, accessories, as well as fashion and interior design projects.

Both Meyers attended Parsons School of Design in New York City. Gene studied fashion and, after a stint designing with Donna Karan at Anne Klein, worked for legendary fashion designer Geoffrey Beene for 11 years before launching eponymous, women’s and men’s collections for which he won two CFDA Awards. His first venture under the Gene Meyer label was a women’s made to order collection, this collection led to many licensing agreements, the most famous being his sought-after collection of graphic silk men’s ties.

Doug studied Fine Arts and later trained his eye working alongside his mentor legendary art dealer Holly Solomon. He next became a private dealer specializing in mid-century furniture while simultaneously taking on interior design projects. In addition he has mounted critically acclaimed exhibitions of his personal art work. For five years he served as the design editor of the Miami Herald’s Home & Design Magazine and an editor for Metropolitan Home Magazine.
