Haynes-Roberts, Inc. focuses on high-end residential projects for clients in the United States and abroad. Their approach to design is one of careful editing, connoisseurship, and comfort. The resulting work is a modern distillation of classic design that is spare, elegant, and inviting. A combination of in-depth study and extensive travel has given the team a profound knowledge of antique furniture and the history of architecture. In addition, their personal passion for contemporary art is key. Their projects attain a level of sophistication that develops from the juxtaposition of a well-edited contemporary art and furniture collection with an eclectic combination of 18th century through mid 20th century antiques.
Recent projects include a 30,000 square foot house on the ocean in Southampton, an 8,000 square foot apartment on Fifth Avenue, a 6,000 square foot Montana ski chalet in the Yellowstone Club, a 30,000 square foot weekend retreat on the Navesink River, the renovation and decoration of a Georgian manor house in Dublin, the decoration of a London townhouse in Kensington, a 6,000 square foot gut renovation and decoration of a Park Avenue duplex for a young family, the interior architecture and decoration of an 9,000 square foot Beach House on Cape Cod, and the renovation and the decoration of a 8,000 square foot Regency house in Palm Beach.
