FR Review:
Though interior designers come from all walks of life, Robert Kaner’s former career stands out: Prior to design school, he was a Harvard-educated partner at a major corporate law firm. Though he has been a full-time designer for over a decade, his unique background informs his work in subtle ways, like superlative project management skills and a problem-solving approach to spatial challenges. That’s not to say that Kaner’s interiors are purely intellectual–his inviting take on modernism is full of fetching details, like a prewar Gramercy apartment with a series of references to the original segmented iron windows, or a Georgian Revival dining room that pairs subtle reds with a stark white pendant piece from Pallucco. That being said, Kaner is probably not the designer for a period recreation or uber-traditional home–there is a streak of the cutting edge in all of his work.

Kaner’s office is small and focused–Kaner himself, three designers, and an office manager. He does not keep an architect on staff, but almost exclusively works on projects with a large architectural component, either collaborating with an outside firm or doing the planning in house. Projects are generally in the city, with occasional excursions into Brooklyn and even farther afield to Miami. Somewhat unusually, Kaner’s firm charges almost exclusively around an hourly fee, freeing the client from worry about conflicts of interest. That doesn’t mean that prices are rock bottom, and the firm is generally not looking to take on small jobs. However, for his canny space planning, contemporary style, and calm professional demeanor, clients are happy to return to Kaner for multiple projects.

Representative Client Comments:
“A polished professional.” “He does contemporary right. That’s rare.” “Nobody is as orga- nized as Bob.” “You can just relax and he takes care of everything.” “Sophisticated, dignified yet quite modest.” “Has seen his business rise dramatically over the last few years–catch him while you can!” “He has a distinct design sensibility.” “He has such foresight–he saved us from making huge mistakes on our project several times.”
