Recently, I stumbled upon the professional website of interior designer, Robert Stilin, and spent the majority of an afternoon swooning over his design portfolio.
Robert Stilin is known for effortlessly combining crisp, clean architecture with custom upholstery, antique and vintage furniture and modern and contemporary art to create casually elegant homes that are warm, comfortable and very livable.
With nearly 20 years of experience running his own design firm, the New York and East Hampton based designer has built a solid reputation as a highly versatile interior designer whose classically modern work is custom tailored to the needs of each client and project.
His fuss-free projects are finely tailored and warmly textured, incorporating clean-cut fabrics, strong-lined vintage, antique, and modern furniture (he has a penchant for 1950s French pieces and their straightforward silhouettes), dark metal, natural woods, and grandly scaled art with a compelling graphic presence.
Completed projects include an oceanfront beach house in Sagaponack, a traditional American country house in East Hampton, a family compound in Amagansett and a penthouse office for an investment and media company in New York’s Meatpacking District. In Palm Beach, a contemporary penthouse apartment for art collectors and an historic Mediterranean-Style home.
Robert has been featured in Elle Décor, House Beautiful, New York Spaces, Architectural Digest España, W, House & Garden, Food & Wine, Hamptons Cottages & Gardens, Hamptons, Hamptons Style, Palm Beach Cottages and Gardens and Traditional Home.
And design books, Hamptons Havens, Designing the Hamptons, Dealer’s Choice: At Home with Purveyor’s of Antiques and Vintage Furnishings, Room for Children, and Be Your Own Decorator. Robert designed the 2009 House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year at Rockefeller Center.
