What started out as a push-cart business on the streets of Manhattan has become what is now the world’s largest housewares, carpet and rug store. With six floors of luxurious goods ranging from divine furniture to apparel and accessories, it’s like walking through a traveler’s home with impeccable taste.

You will be intrigued by each item laid out amongst what is the most amazing department store in Manhattan. This is one NYC landmark that anyone with fine taste will be glad to see.

Masculine, Tribal, Contemporary and Handsome. That is the work of Tucker Robbins



Layer in pops of color with his work and you’ll have the look and vibe that can span from urban to tropical.  Calibrate the look and mood by dialing it up or down the sensibilities to temper it to your own tastes.


Tucker’s designs are made from extraordinary materials and bear, in many cases, honorable histories. Ironically, as a monk, he lived with almost no furniture for 10 years.


An inveterate world traveler, Tucker now splits his time between designer showrooms, his New York City studio and the various remote jungle communities where he buys his wood and often employs local craftsmen to help create his pieces.


Mixing ancient tribal motifs with modern styles, he calls his mode of furniture design “modern primitivism.”

Philpotts Interiors featured in the Fall 2012 Issue of LHQ



The Fall 2012 Issue of Luxury Home Quarterly features Philpotts Interiors and our work from Modern Perch and the Royal Hawaiian.


As a “trailblazing designer” in the 1960’s, Mary Philpotts McGrath, her mother and founder, focused on hospitality, resort, high-end residential and commercial projects throughout the U.S., Asia and the Pacific. Philpotts Interiors’ oeuvre includes such high profile projects as the newly renovated Royal Hawaiian Hotel, the Hawaii Convention Center and Disney’s new resort at Ko Olina. In its production of immersive interiors, Philpotts has established itself as a translator of local culture attune with modern sensibilities on design and technology that create a true sense of place.


Sense and place individually help delineate what and how Philpotts designs. Philpotts-Miller says, “Design voices are fundamentally authentic when based on the origins of the environment versus some glorified themed concept. It is not to say that design is restricted by this foundation, but rooted there and watered so it grows out of its environment, where the beauty becomes a wonderful collective script unfolding through collaboration, courage and discipline.”

Mixing it up with John Robshaw!



In NYC I stopped in to John Robshaw. His talent, textiles and inspirations from India are great. Here, you’ll see patterns and textiles, new and antique all mixed up in various colors. The best part is that you don’t have to go to India to collect these colorful and exotic textiles. They’re right here in NYC and among retailers, including Honolulu’s own Place- a design atelier of Philpotts & Associates.


Mix it up! Robshaws fabrics mix various patterns and color combinations.


You can mix Robshaw’s styling with many other styles and interpretations. Just look at the inspiration of his headboards that mix in shapes and a bit of quirkiness!


Looking for the exotic escape with a mix of different cultures? Mix in furnishings from India!

Morocco can mix with Colonial, and even with the ‘pop’ of modern you’ll have an exotic, romantic and fresh contemporary style.


Try to reinvent tables and bureaus fresh in hot lacquer paints or tables that draw on the exotic, mix them all up with John Robshaw Textiles!
