Designer Profile: Haynes Roberts

I recently discovered, via the web, the firm of HAYNES ROBERTS, a New York City based design team, consisting of Timothy Haynes, a Harvard trained architect, and Kevin Roberts, a designer who has worked in Geneva, Switzerland. I was very taken with this dining room, which is shown on their website as well. I love the mood of the room, and the photography is by one of the better known camera-istes, adding a certain gravitas to the image. The sophisticated mix of furnishings, the controlled palette, the art, I love the whole as well as the parts. I admire also the contrast between the dark covers on the painted frames of the chairs, foiling the ethereal washed blue walls. Congrats to HR on a job well done! DF *****
