The interiors of New York– and Hamptons–based designer Robert Stilin are renowned for their strong clean lines; warm, rich palette; antique and vintage furnishings; and custom upholstery—frequently combined with modern and contemporary art. Fifteen of his finest projects are featured in this lushly illustrated volume. They range from city townhouses, apartments, and lofts to beach houses and country abodes. Whether the architecture is traditional or ultramodern, Stilin’s interiors exude a casual, comfortable elegance that he expertly tailors to the specific needs and taste of each client.

Robert Stilin has run his own design firm for over twenty-five years. His projects have been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, W, and Hamptons Cottages & Gardens, as well as in design books, including Design in the Hamptons and The Big Book of the Hamptons. An avid art collector, he is a member of the Director’s Council at the Whitney Museum of American Art. He divides his time between New York and East Hampton.

Stephen Kent Johnson is an interiors, travel, and food photographer.

Mayer Rus is the West Coast editor of AD. He has been the design and culture editor of the Los Angeles Times, the design editor of House & Garden, and editor of Interior Design.

The rooms that Robert Stilin creates for his clients are like no others. . . . The door is open in this book to his best works to date.


Given the elegant results that fill the volume, it’s clear that no matter the curveball, Stilin remains ‘calm, cool, collected”—which happens to be the name of the first chapter.

He’s been crafting elegant, supremely comfortable interiors for 30 years, but Robert Stilin’s work has never been the subject of a book—until now. Robert Stilin: Interiors offers a look at 15 of the houses and apartments he has designed around the country.

This book amply demonstrates the beautiful and unique eye that he brings to every project he touches.
