Born in 1905, the designer T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings studied Architecture at the University of London. Subsequently, he worked as a naval architect and designed several liner interiors.
He became the most important decorator of America during the years 1930-1940. In 1936 he opened a shop in New York. His production is filled with different influences and mixes a modern look of Greek design but also Decorative Art design. His trademark becomes one of an modern historicism. He uses a Greco-Roman design in his creations but keeps however a simple and elegant style. One of his biggest commissions is the 200 pieces of furniture made for Hilda Boldt Weber's Casa Encantada between 1934 and 1938.
