Bristow Proffitt Studio

Litchfield, CT

"Their interiors are a canvas of colors, objects, art and collections that are appropriate for the spaces they design. Whether it be a Quirk Hotel, a modern translation of a west-indies property, or a coffee shop they find a way to hit the right notes that speak to the places, the location, the clientele."
ROBERT BRISTOW and PILAR PROFFITT are partners in BRISTOW | PROFFITT Studio, a multidisciplinary Architecture and Interior Design firm.

Robert takes a straightforward approach to design, where the output is the offspring of a clear idea expressed with elemental materials and simple processes.

Pilar is the interior design arm of the duo. Every piece is carefully orchestrated to give the whole a gentle balance of both the masculine and feminine.

Together the duo have combined their talents to design houses, hotels, and public buildings such as Quirk Hotel, Harney Tea Room SoHo, and Hotel Ralph Pucci.
Wescover creator since 2019

More About This Creator


Is there an essential mix of talents you need to create a space?

"We are a husband and wife team and thus we are constantly mixing the masculine and the feminine. Rob draws by making, so we think, we design and then often we make. We produce prototypes of furniture, building parts, interior vignettes and often even produce the furnishings for our projects. It’s a real gorilla approach to it all."

How did you discover Creators (designers, artists, makers, etc.) and keep your community growing?

"We find that the hospitality world can be a very close knit family. We started getting invited to conferences and have made some nice friends in the biz. This has been a great way for us to expand our community."
