Lawson Robb
An interior design house delivering considered, curatorial spaces

For nearly 20 years, Lawson Robb has been designing beautiful interiors and exceptional residences worldwide. From private apartments and townhouses to superyachts, luxury villas and hotels abroad, nothing is impossible for the talented design team. Now under the new direction of creative leads George Wolstenholme and Lena Cottray, the mission of the design house is to continue delivering the unexpected and unconventional, producing the kind of spaces never seen before.


Design for Lawson Robb means extracting the DNA of an idea and seeing what can be developed from it. Each project has its own story to tell and a project identity that sets it apart. Schemes never fall into the uniformity of current trends but instead relate back to the practice’s three key principles: to design with an atemporal, considered and curatorial style. Whether the brief requires a nod to heritage and timelessness, or fusing custom joinery and decorative objects for a look that feels more futuristic and innovative, Lawson Robb’s aesthetic is constantly evolving. The objective is to create approachable yet thought-provoking spaces that are unique to each client.

With a Masters in yacht design and ten years of experience in superyachts and ultra-prime residential properties, as well as bespoke furniture design internationally, George’s expertise is in complex yet strikingly beautiful environments. Design partner Lena has an equally impressive background, bringing a wealth of knowledge that stems from her years spent working in the high-end hospitality and residential sector. She began her career in the art world, specialising in modern masters and contemporary artists. This fed her passion and innate eye for art – something that ultimately translates into her interiors.


The pair began collaborating four years ago and have since taken on large-scale projects around the world. Most notably of which is the superyacht ‘Phi’, a ground-breaking 58.5m sub 500GT vessel that was designed in collaboration with Royal Huisman, Cor D Rover and Van Oossanen Naval Architects. The exterior details of Phi have been released, but the interiors remain under wraps until her final launch towards the end of 2022.

The duo has also recently completed the renovation of a Grade II-listed townhouse in Little Venice in London, for discerning clients who wanted to retain the history of the building, while elevating it with clean lines and contemporary details that align with their lifestyle. George and Lena have also had the opportunity to design their first piece for the Allect Group’s new bespoke furniture brand Unknown Editions. The wider team is also currently working on new projects both in the Middle East and in the UK.

The pair’s recent inspirations are the new ideals of luxury that they are seeing in their clients around the globe, and translating this into their schemes. Alongside this, they are continuously inspired by curiosities in the design world, from the new and exciting to the work of classic masters.

In all, Lawson Robb is a global, multi-disciplinary practice with a proven track record in pushing the boundaries of interior design and creating spectacular spaces.
