FR Review:
Robert Couturier takes the art of interior design to an ethereally remarkable level, but neither Couturier nor his work loses its sense of levity in the process. He is renowned for creating visions that relate to historical moments, yet are infused with the presence of today. Couturier’s French influence (he spent years studying in Paris) often finds its way into his work, usually in the form of unbridled Surrealist-minded play. Clients stand back and watch in “serious amusement,” remarking that Couturier takes them on personal journeys and delivers spectacular and original thought. While known in New York for compositions of continental grandeur, in California, Couturier's work is given to fanciful explorations of the finest twentieth-century French aesthetic. Consistently inspiring his peers, Couturier creates visions of historical resonance that are infused with the presence of today.

While many projects are undertaken for a variety of English, French, and American tycoons (he worked on Sir James Goldsmith’s 60,000-square-foot Mexican compound, as well as projects for Princess Wolkonsky and Anne Hearst), younger clients also enjoy working with Couturier. There is a large, sophisticated team supporting Couturier, detailing each step along the way. He is willing to begin just one room at a time, knowing that the budget-constrained will return when they are able. Alternatively, he is capable of mobilizing an entire village of 2,000 workers in a remote location to get the job done correctly.

While some balk at his prices and uncompromising taste in expensive fabrics, all find him honest, and his staff helpful and responsive. Living rooms are typically in the $100,000 to $300,000 realm. Well-heeled references commend Couturier for helping them to make wise design investment decisions. Most feel that the high costs are justified for the ultimate in upscale chic. AD 100.

Representative Client Comments:
"Pure pleasure—the process and the epic result. But you have to have an abundant budget." "Robert can do crisp, sleek modern with the best of them. But his designs are based upon my history and the history of design. They make referential, aesthetic and intellectual sense." "Robert captured exactly what I wanted, even though I didn't know how to express the thought myself." "Works with the most influential people in the world, and with my friends, who own rather small homes." "He is an ingenious master, but he does not take himself too seriously." "Robert composes harmonic design symphonies. He is the real thing. Others try to do this and it just looks like a hodgepodge." "If there is ever an issue, he says, ‘Don't worry about it,' and magically finds a solution." "Facile—all is coordinated for you. Brilliant results." "They obviously so enjoy the work and friendships emerged."
