T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings was a British-born architect and furniture designer. Born Thomas Harry Robjohns Gibbings in 1903 (d. 1976), he sailed to the US in 1929 and again in 1930, when he took up residence in New York. In the late 1930s and 1940s he was the most important decorator in America. Read more (Wikipedia).

Robsjohn-Gibbings was photographed by Karsh in 1945 for House Beautiful. Karsh photographed several people for that magazine through the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s, including other architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, and artists such as Lenore Tawney.
