T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, 1945

The October issue of Canada’s House and Home includes this photograph of T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings in an article about styling a room. Referring to a visit to a friend’s place, Lynda Reeves asks him about a sofa and two armchairs:

“T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings,” he replied. If you aren’t familiar with the great British-born American tastemaker and furniture designer of the mid 1900s who established a style of decorating for the new post-war American home, I can tell you that his name is code for “fabulous, cool and very expensive.”

T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings was photographed in 1945 for House Beautiful Magazine.
