T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings

British, 1905 - 1976

Born in Britain in 1905, T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings studied Architecture at the University of London. After college, he worked a number of design-centric jobs, which ranged from designing interiors for ocean lines to art directing for a movie studio. In 1926, he began working for Charles Duveen—an iconic, London-based antiques dealer. In 1929, Robsjohn-Gibbings moved to the United States  to work in Duveen’s New York office. In 1936, he established his own shop on Madison Avenue, where he sold antiques as well as contemporary furnishings. Soon, Robsjohn-Gibbings was designing interiors for a host of well-known names, including Elizabeth Arden, Doris Duke, and Alfred Knopf. From 1943 to 1956, he worked as a designer for the Widdicomb Furniture Company, where he designed some of his most recognized pieces. Inspired by classical design, Robsjohn-Gibbings favored spare yet elegant forms and rich woods. He was also recognized for his ability to incorporate Greek and Roman elements into his distinctly modern designs. In the 1960s, Robsjohn-Gibbings moved to Athens, where he designed interiors for such luminaries as Aristotle Onassis and the Niarchos family. He also partnered with the Sardis Company to design furniture inspired by ancient Greece, which is still in production today. Robsjohn-Gibbings died in 1976 at the age of 71.
