Robbert Haring has a long international career as an interior designer serving the high end of the market. His projects range from redesigning and decorating small and large private homes to stores and hotel rooms. Robbert also designs bespoke pieces of furniture and has launched his own product range for outdoor furniture.
He founded Antennae Interiors in the heart of Amsterdam’s fashionable canal district in 2009 after many years working at Ralph Lauren department of Interior & Merchandising Europe. He developed new store formats, which in typical Lauren style consist of rooms in different styles. Focus on the smallest details instilled in him the American sense of perfection, while making sure tough deadlines were met to open a new shop. He also organized the collection, building on his early experience as a fashion buyer and stylist for photography and interior design magazines.
Robbert’s grounding in history of art –he obtained a master’s in history of art with a specialization in 18th century interiors – and eye for creating a personal homely sphere make him a versatile designer who can bring a ‘boutique feel’ to any hotel, smaller or bigger.
Robbert has excellent knowledge of materials, fabrics and colour schemes. He has been trained in colour theory and compiled sample books in New York. Next to his native Dutch, he speaks fluent German and English.
