  • ABOUT RORIC TOBIN DESIGNS  

    In October 2018, Roric Tobin took the next huge step in his career by taking over an iconic storefront just off Fifth Avenue with a pop-up to launch a made-to-order, custom high-end furniture collection with a compelling installation and cocktail party.      

    Featured in Architectural Digest, Business of Home, Forbes, Ocean Drive, and Manhattan Magazine, the debut collection of Agate end tables, matching hide area rugs, as well as luxurious bedroom and living room pieces, were made from hand-crafted exotic wood veneers like Macassar and Caleidolegno and using dynamic stones such as Portoro and Kenya Black marbles. This breakthrough line is available via www.rorictobindesigns.com , www.incollect.com, and the Newel Gallery in New York.

    Made entirely in New York, using the same artisans and woodworkers he has been collaborating with on interior projects for more than a decade, Roric seeks to change the dynamic in the way consumers and designers encounter the world of high-end furnishings. By manufacturing completely in New York, he sources locally while servicing a new global audience hungry for statement pieces that don’t take months to design or deliver. This process allows his customers to closely manage the process providing the purchaser information in real time, and to be more intimately involved– whether it is selecting the finishes of a standard model or a creating a fully customized, one-of-a-kind piece.  

    Interior designer, Roric Tobin, along with Geoffrey Bradfield formed B & T Global, LLC under the working moniker Bradfield & Tobin, in 2014 to focus on major domestic and international projects.

  • (May 19, 2019)

    May 2019 - Roric Tobin Designs (RTD) will make its debut appearance at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) from May 19 – 22nd in New York City. As part of NYC x Design Week in Manhattan, RTD will showcase their new spring collection. 

    • CRANE CHAIR
      • The clean lines of the Crane chair appear deceptively simple and hide the underlying complexity of the geometry involved. Taking their elegant shape from the most iconic origami form, they bring a sculptural drama. 
    • BAGUETTE SOFA
      • The most striking detail of the Baguette sofa and chair is the deeply tufted, geometric upholstery. At once sumptuous and restrained, the lines are accented with rich wood on the arms and sides. Finishes shown: chenille upholstery with Macassar wood veneer accents.
    • AGATA RUG
      • The Agata rugs are crafted in the highest quality, dyed cow hides.  These models are based on the slabs of the existing Solitaire side tables but could be made to correlate to a slab of your choosing.  The designs could also be executed in a wide variety of available dyes or made to any size. 
    • SOLITAIRE TABLE
      • Each Solitaire Table is unique because each starts with a natural slab of agate as its top.  Once the slab is selected, the legs, in a combination of wood and hammered steel, grasp the slab like the setting of a piece of jewelry
    • DIODE SIDE TABLE
      • This perfectly round side table is wrapped in an elegant wood veneer with a simple metal band holding the glass top which reveals the interior of the table. The top can be glass, or a coordinating stone. Finishes Shown: Macassar veneer with a glass top on recessed polished stainless steel base. Diameter: 20 in. Height: 21 in.
    • RIVER ROCK BUFFET TABLE
      • The River Rock buffet features a cast glass top that recalls the rushing water that, over centuries, smoothed the stones at its bed, from which the cabinet takes its shape.  
    • RADIANT COFFEE TABLE
      • The Radiant coffee table features an ambitiously oversized slab of geode, which is then lit from below – allowing the rich natural variations to glow through. Below are two shelves, one glass, one solid, framed in exotic veneer, which make the table supremely functional while serving as a stunning centerpiece to the room. Finishes shown: dark Caleidolegno wood veneer with an agate top.
    • SIGNET SIDE TABLE
      • The Signet Table showcases a heft of semi-precious amethyst, set into a base of crossing supports in exotic veneer [here shown in Grey Ash] with polished steel accents.

    The line reinterprets furniture into functional art, making quintessential pieces with inherent beauty. It pairs exotic materials from all over the world, creating rich, visual textures from marble, wood grains and metal accents from places like South America, Asia, Europe and North America, allowing the materials to elevate the tone of an interior while staying true to the functionality of modern life. 

    With each custom piece in the Roric Tobin Designs collection 100 percent crafted in New York City  it offers the customer the opportunity to be more involved in the process of creating a signature one of a kind piece, with crucial faster delivery time, often in as little as six to eight weeks as opposed to the typical 10-20 weeks with overseas shipments.

    While others are coming in from all over the world to showcase their new wares, the RTD collection is made entirely in NEW YORK. Tobin sources locally while servicing a new global audience hungry for statement pieces with short lead times. Tobin works with some of the best artisans and woodworkers in the world, who happen to reside in the five boroughs where his interior design business is based.  Further, in deciding to create these pieces in his home city of New York, his customers can more closely manage the process providing the purchaser information in real time, and to be more intimately involved– whether it is selecting the finishes of a standard model or a creating a fully customized, one-of-a-kind piece.  

    At ICFF, attendees will see such awe-inspiring pieces as the dazzling Crane Chair, a brilliant and complex geometric piece inspired by the iconic origami form, that is already creating buzz from its premiere showing at DIFFA’s Dining by Design in April. The form of the Crane is transformed into a beautiful chair with intricate and stunning craftsmanship to bring this breathtaking sculptural drama right into your living room. Other highlights include an ocean blue Agate Solitaire Table, with wood and hammered steel that grasps the slab of crystal like the most beautiful diamond ring. It has a matching statement piece in the form of a hide rug, executed in a wide variety of dyes to match any of the Solitaire tables, that can become the center piece of any room.

    The full selection of pieces can be viewed at ICFF Booth #2349.
