Robert Rionda, the Principal of the firm, designs with a classic, yet eclectic, versatile approach to create interiors tailored to individual tastes and needs. Whether traditional or contemporary, Rionda interprets the client's vision in a manner that is unified, timeless, and comfortable. Artwork plays a significant role in the firm's interiors, whether designing around an existing collection or guiding a client in acquiring works of art. The firm's projects have been featured in numerous national and international design publications.

 

"It is a privilege to work at the historic Kampong, where our designs will be inspired by the natural beauty of the property," said Rionda. "We are excited to participate in our first showhouse and work with other designers to help raise money for the important work of the Junior League."  For the firm's design for the main bedroom of the Barbour Cottage, as a nod to The Kampong they have selected furniture, fabrics, and artwork made of natural materials and depicting botanical motifs, including a large photograph of water lilies by photographer Renato Freitas that is reminiscent of the gardens of David Fairchild.
