Lucien Rees Roberts was born in England and educated in architecture and design at Cambridge University. In 1981 he moved to New York, where he currently is partner of Rees Roberts + Partners . He also was the founding head of the interiors department at Steven Harris Architects LLP , where his aesthetic vision has played an integral role in the development of the firm and the successful execution of its projects.
Well-known for his subtle use of color, texture and fabric, Rees Roberts’s designs capture the essence of modern living. Coming from the third generation of painters in his family, his love for art is a unique and important source for his inspiration and has left an indelible mark on his design tastes. His work achieves a functional elegance that is characterized by his deference to art, light and views provided by natural surroundings. Each project reflects the character of the client as well as the needs of everyday life, and his designs incorporate a combination of custom furniture and unusual antiques.
Rees Roberts has designed interiors for projects in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Florida, California and other areas of the United States, as well as in Mexico, South Africa, Costa Rica and Croatia. In December 2008, he received the honor of being inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame, and his design work is regularly featured in a wide range of international design books and publications.
