Midweight FF&E Designer

Permanent - Design - London, United Kingdom

About Us

Angel O’Donnell numbers among Andrew Martin’s Top 100 Designers 2023. On top of their critical success – which includes the coveted Overall Winner trophy at the Society of British and International Interior Design – they’ve earned a reputation for thoughtful discretion, friendly collaboration and pin-sharp detailing, qualities their clients prize dearly.

It’s how Angel O’Donnell has become a highly sought-after design studio, with clients from around the world – notably New York, Hong Kong, Mumbai and even Hamilton in Bermuda – seeking out their services in London.

From heritage properties to contemporary new builds, recent projects include three sub-penthouses in Triptych Bankside, a penthouse and sub-penthouse in One St. John’s Wood, a Georgian townhouse, an Edwardian family home, four apartments in Park Hyatt Residences, and three apartments in The OWO Residences by Raffles.

This work is underpinned by the studio’s co-founders, Richard Angel and Ed O’Donnell, who believe in approaching every brief with fresh eyes, unhampered by a signature look. This frees them to put each client at the heart of what they do. No one-size-fits-all process. No cookie-cutter style. Just beautiful, bespoke designs impeccably delivered.
