Interior Designer, Alison Antrobus credits her design foundation and ethos to both her Caribbean heritage, her unique academic training at The Rhode Island School of Design, and her work experience alongside Design Legends such as Philippe Starck, Axel Vervoordt, and the work of David Hicks. Her innate talent as a Visual Artist allows her to explore Interior + Product Design through the lens of a Painter, Sculptor, Fashion Designer and Artist resulting in layered details intended to relay the narrative unique to each project.
Prior to opening her practice in 2002 Alison worked for International Architectural Firm, Perkins + Will, and opened the Miami based design studio of YOO Ltd, a London Design Development firm with Philippe Starck at the helm of Design.
Her range of talent across all creative disciplines has earned her unique collaborations beyond the scope of Interior Design. One notable venture was to design a watch strap, which was featured on OPRAH for an International watch brand PHILIP STEIN. Alison also received an International Design Patent for a handbag she created with detachable drawers and a convertible clutch, aptly named “The Antrobus Bag “which earned a feature in the coveted Woman’s Wear Daily and invitations to the CNBC network show, “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch.” and The TODAY SHOW. Her accolades span across notable publications such as, Hospitality Design, Architectural Digest Italia and Interior Design Magazine, which featured her in their first ever, “Women In Design” issue.
For two decades Alison has grown her practice into a Luxury, Award-winning; Multi-Disciplinary Design studio built on the foundation of creating transformative spaces, that are timeless and memorable. Her diversity in design styles is a true testament to her desire and ability to allow each client to be the source of inspiration. “…We do not have a specific style, but rather we have specific principals: to listen and translate your story with our lens, allowing you to be the inspiration in creating spaces as unique as you are,” This approach has earned Alison a reputation amongst a long roster of A-listers and repeat clients who seek to create one-of-a-kind properties, filled with warmth, character and soul.
