Robert Stilin is a New York-based interior designer in high demand. Boasting more than 25 years of experience at the helm of his own design firm, Stilin has become a go-to favorite for prestigious clientele who flock to him for his casually elegant, inviting designs.

Stilin has a particular knack for layering different mediums. His designs combine vintage and new furniture, often featuring custom upholstery, with bold, contemporary artwork to create classic spaces that also feel very fresh and modern. Speaking of artwork, it’s a major point of influence on Stilin’s designs. He’s an avid art collector, always encouraging clients to invest in pieces of their own, and serves on the board of the Director’s Council at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Stilin’s versatile eye for design has led him to creating a wide range of stunning spaces for elite clients from Palm Beach to Park Avenue. He’s also been featured in countless design publications, including Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, and Food & Wine.
