We just completed a Robsjohn Gibbings inspired walnut X Base Dining Table for an interior designer from Westchester. This table can seat six comfortably and eight with the leaf, extending the width of the table 20″ from 72″ without the leaf to 92″ with the leaf. We provided the client with shop drawings prior to production and a finish sample before completing the hand polish finish. We’ve created several Robsjohn Gibbings inspired pieces including dressers, lounge chairs, and a Jean Michel Frank X Base Desk.
Pictured is a T.H. Robsjohn Gibbings inspired custom double dresser with a high gloss white finish and brass hardware that we completed for a client. The original designed featured three drawers and a matte lacquer finish. The client has a bedroom where a three drawer dresser was too small.
Robsjohn Gibbings design aesthetic is a mixture of modern and classical elements of Art Deco and Ancient Grecian design.
T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings furniture design was inspired by the classic forms of the Ancient Greek style and interpreted with a contemporary twist from the mid-twentieieth century. This is a pair of custom lounge chairs we created for a client in New York City. They are made out of solid white oak and upholstered with a natural linen fabric. As per the client’s request, the front legs were modified and the seat height is 36″. To read more about Robsjohn Gibbings click here
Here is another version of the T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings we created for a client in East Hampton, Long Island. The house is located on the beach and they wanted light, modern lounge chairs for their living room. These chairs are popular with many different interior design styles and we have done different versions of it. To see other options see here and here.

This is a pair of T. H. Robsjohn Gibbings white lacquer dressers that will be the inspiration for a custom AV cabinet for the master bedroom of a client. The new AV cabinet will feature four front doors. Often when we build custom furniture for clients it’s a piece designed to fit into a larger set. Usually the complementary furniture piece is difficult or impossible to find, or perhaps the wrong size. The furniture of Robsjohn Gibbings is a popular design influence for many of our clients and elements are incorporated into our own custom collection.
Pictured is an interior designed by Bruce Glickman and Wilson Henley featured on Elle Decore LookBook’s website. Here we can see a great set of vintage T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings dining chairs that were incorporated into design and also a pair Robsjohn-Gibbings slipper chairs in the living room. The slipper chairs are slightly different from the set we completed with a double cushion versus our design which had a single cushion. The solid wood with the natural finish present a nice compliment to the light fabric and give the chairs warmth, yet feel modern. Another set of the custom slipper chairs with a slightly different style can be viewed here. The chairs offer a great deal of flexibility for designers to match existing styles and also look gorgeous in a wide range of fabrics and finishes. With a lacquer finish the Robsjohn Gibbings chairs can fit seamlessly into a modern or art deco style interior.
At ERA interiors we also specialize in creating museum quality reproductions. One of the best ways to create an identical reproduction is by having access to the original piece of furniture while creating the reproduction. The price for custom reproduction pieces varies depending on the furniture style and intricacy of the elements that compose the piece of furniture. Furniture with more elaborate or detailed carving tends to be more time consuming. Pictured is a mid-century modern lounge chair reproduction and the refinished, original chair. We created an exact duplicate where even the most discerning client will have difficulty differentiating the original.
