They're known for their luxe interiors for clients, but in their own loft, designers Kevin Roberts and Timothy Haynes prefer to keep it simple.
In the Manhattan loft of designers Timothy Haynes and Kevin Roberts, 1950s armchairs by Joseph-André Motte, upholstered in a Holland & Sherry fabric, flank a 1960s cocktail table by Tommi Parzinger in the living area; the wicker chairs, which Mathieu Matégot designed for the Casablanca airport, and the brass cocktail table by Gabriela Crespi are all from the 1960s; the 1970s Milo Baughman sofa is covered in a Maharam wool, the painted iron-and-abalone tables are by Tony Duquette, and the ceiling lights are by Verner Panton. The many artworks include a wall sculpture by Donald Judd above the Thassos marble fireplace, a black painting by Rashid Johnson, and a drawing by Thomas Houseago.
