“I can’t express how excited I am for the debut of my Robin Baron lighting designs at Metropolitan Lighting. This showroom has been my go-to resource for lighting for many years and now to get to see my own lighting collections front and center in their showroom is an incredible and surreal experience,” Baron shared.
Based in NYC, Baron, Founder and President, Robin Baron Design, has spent three decades successfully growing her full-service interior design firm, which specializes in high-end residential and commercial design. Celebrating an extensive list of luxury and high-profile projects, Robin first publicly shared her product design expertise with the launch of her 2017, Robin Baron Signature Collections which includes hardware, case goods, upholstery, rugs and lighting. Robin Baron Signature Collections, known for its “uniqueness, with exquisite statement pieces and a beautiful, luxury aesthetic” has led to Robin being a sought-after product designer and to the expansion of her product designs into other categories.
The Minka Group first launched their partnership and lighting collection with Baron in January 2022. As with anything she designs, the inspiration behind the collections is fashion.
“One of my greatest passions is jewelry. Wherever I travel, I am always drawn to vintage, unique, and specialty pieces. Lighting, like jewelry, should be bold, and fabulous! In the same way that a beautiful piece of jewelry defines a fashionable look, lighting transforms a room from simple to stunning," Baron shared. "My lighting designs for Minka Group make that statement — by punctuating the space, elevating the design and giving each room that finishing touch that homeowners crave.”
Baron’s lighting designs for The Minka Group feature six collections – Astor, Chelsea, Gramercy, SoHo, Sutton and Tribeca, an homage to neighborhoods in Robin’s hometown, New York City. A thread of Baron's style runs throughout her entire Minka Group lighting collections – like the starburst shape inspiring the stunning Gramercy and Sutton designs to the elegant loops reflected in the Astor design, that mimic the sophistication shown in her licensed hardware collection with Hamilton Sinkler. The stylish SoHo design incorporates leather trim, a clear nod to her fashion background and pairs exquisitely with her UnZipped Pillow Collection by The Pillow Goddess.
Robin’s licensing agent Yudi Kaufman, YKD Associates, added, “We are thrilled to be launching Robin’s new lighting collections with The Minka Group at WNWN. Robin has always been a design innovator and now NYC can find her exquisite collections on display and for sale at the Metropolitan Lighting Showroom at The New York Design Center."
