Sought after by Fortune 500 clients and some of the most prominent families in the world for his contemporary yet practical style, Roric Tobin started his career as a design assistant at Geoffrey Bradfield’s renowned firm. After making a name for himself and ultimately becoming a partner, Tobin last year added furniture designer to his name, creating custom, made-to-order pieces. To help offset the dreary monotony of winter, Tobin picks his favorite home goods with pops of bright blue.
