Rhobin is a fantastic designer that we strongly admire and recommend. He has a strong sense of aesthetic balance, especially when dealing with seemingly contradicting colors, materials, and textures. His use of color is absolutely remarkable, accenting rooms in just the right ways.

I lived in my condo apartment for four years. As the months turn to years I realize all I had was a couch and a TV. I had tons of ideas in my head but just didn't know how to execute them without overcrowding the space or making it look like my mother's house! My determination began I knew I had to do something with the space. I browsed the web daily for idea and decided to look at interior designers thinking a girl can dream. I came across quite a few designers and its funny to see what some call "interior design"!!! Daily I would visit Rhobin's page something about it captured my eye. I just loved each and every photo I saw. It took weeks for me to call but when I did, I now know it was one of the best decisions I have made concerning my home and my life. Rhobin took my list of ideas and transformed my house into a chic, modern, sexy, pleasant home! Throughout the design process Rhobin's idea resonated with me and I got to the point where my input was no longer needed "he got this" and put the reins in his hands. I was done. I knew I was working with an artist and professional. Every phase had me more and more excited anticipating the final reveal. I watch Rhobin and his team work many hours into the night on the space and just the passion and determination they had to make everything PERFECT reinforced how good he is and how he pays attention to his clients. He captured my personality and style and married colors, patterns and texture like nothing I could have imagined. Everything from the carpet to the pillows to the wallpaper and even the art in the bathroom reflects me! Everyday I open my door I'm now in another world, I leave the day behind and come "HOME". I could go on about the details of this whole process but everyone knows what it entails, I wanted everyone to know the personal attention I received from Rhobin. His professionalism, attention to detail, was well worth the time and process his mind is an artistic machine....Rhobin has a true gift and is able to capture your vision big or small! I look forward to working with Rhobin again!

Working with Rhobin and Chi a few years ago was a breeze! I needed some renderings for a cafe concept in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. WIthin 48hrs I had complete concept ideas and I absolutely loved them. They're literally the only design team that I didn't have to request a hundred "tiny tweaks" from! Thank you!

Rhobin was the first decorator we ever hired, and boy was he amazing!!!! He took the time to really listen to what we were looking to execute, and incorporated all of our feedback into the approach. As first time homeowners, we were in the midst of a a lot of change at once, and Rhobin was phenomenal at helping us break out the project in stages. I would highly recommend Rhobin in the future, and plan on using his services again (hopefully) soon!

I had a very positive experience working with Rhobin and his team. They were reliable, responsive and easy to work with. They understood my overall vision and taste and helped bring it to life. They truly helped elevate the overall look of my space.

Rhobin is a lifesaver. Truly. After my boyfriend and I were ghosted (literally) 3 weeks before our move by a designer we had engaged, we found Rhobin and somehow moved into our apartment just days later with all of our furniture, carpets, accents, etc. in place or on the way. Time crunch was a serious understatement. Rhobin power-designed to get things selected and ordered, repurposing our existing furniture to make sure it made sense while still adding in lots of fun and flair. Our budget as well as our interest in mixing high/low was 100% respected and we loved everything Rhobin sent our way. Everything is done to perfect precision. There's no better way to explain this than how he managed to find us a wardrobe that fits perfectly in front of a door and allows both the closet door and the wardrobe door to be open at the same time. That probably doesn't make sense but trust me, it's epic. HIRE THIS COMPANY!

Working with Rhobin and his assistant, 'Chi', was an absolute pleasure! I found Rhobin's work/portfolio after a bit of research and fell in love with his design and approach. After a few email correspondences, Rhobin came out to my company for a consultation, where he clearly outlined his goals, the scope of work, and really put me at ease! Our company hired Rhobin to complete a full design of our 'tech team' space which was about 2,000 sq ft. Rhobin provided multiple concepts and design options and was able to execute under an extremely tight deadline, with employees in and out of the department. Rhobin's design enhanced the aesthetic look of the department, while also creating an efficient and inviting space for the team to collaborate! I would definitely hire him again for not only personal but commercial design projects as I know he will execute - with a smile! THANK YOU RHOBIN!

I believe that a re-decorating/renovating partnership is successful when you meet a person with similar values, exhibits certain styles that appeal to you, and most of all, you get along with. Having said that, I began my search for a decorator to refresh my living room to accommodate the new spouse as well as our adopted four-legged brood and I am so happy I came upon Rhobin. A few of my concerns were: 1. Budget. We were looking for a "bigger" living room versus being able to just move out into a larger apartment 2. We don't live in Manhattan. We aren't far away but nonetheless, not being in Manhattan scares away vendors. 3. Too small of a project for anyone to bother with. I came across Rhobin's site and saw that he actually did a project in Hoboken so I got to work on drafting a very detailed email. Worst comes to worst, he can ignore me like some of the firms I reached out to or he could respond and politely let me down. But he did not. He responded and thanked me for my detail in describing our situation and detailing what we were looking for. We met with Rhobin and Chi to go over the presentation, agreed that we wanted to take on this project with his firm and that was it from there. Having never done a decorating project before, I think I learned a lot working with Rhobin. First off, you don't have to micro-manage. He has it under control. I think that the areas which gave me anxiety such the electrician, the painting, installation, etc., he took care of and I really didn't have to worry at all. This is an evolving process and ultimately you have to remember why you hired him. You trust him. You trust his professional experience, you trust his taste, you trust his vision. When I see the reactions of guests that come by to our place, it makes us realize that our apartment (living room) looks completely different. The statement pieces, the accessories, wall shelves - they all take a part in creating a bigger living space for us. This was phase I. I am hoping our bedroom next year will be phase II!!!

Rhobin and Chi were an absolute amazing team to work with, and we would choose to work with them again. They led point for us on a condo renovation project and kept things moving along smoothly. Some of the things we would highlight are: Great project management. Took a load off of us having to negotiate and coordinate with contractors (esp. since we were traveling internationally at the time). Great responsive communication. Trustworthy. They helped us how to imagine the potential furnishing layout of an oddly-shaped condo (especially including the living room)

Rhobin & Chi, of Rhobin DelaCruz Designs, helped us (e.g., carried us all the way through) through a pretty, hefty renovation of our apartment, and they did amazing work! They guided us through renovating our bathroom, all floors, all light fixtures, and re-painting the entire apartment. Working with them was great. After talking through what I thought I would like, they would present various options, discussing with me and helping me come to decisions that made sense, were aesthetically appealing, and were cohesive. They also worked really well with the contractors and were great project managers of the entire renovation. Chi would stop by the apartment regularly to check in on the status of work, provide updates back to us, and give feedback to the contractors - which was amazing. It was comforting to feel like she took a lot of ownership over the work and wouldn't let anything slip. The end-product feels amazing. The bathroom, which was a cavernous pit, is now much more spacious & calming in feeling; overall, it's much more functional as well (RDD suggested making a custom cut-out for shelves and for a cat box, which has been a great use of space). The rest of the apartment, with regard to the work done for the floors, painting, and light fixtures, looks much more "together" - a nice polish tying together an otherwise quirky personal style. All this to say, truly above and beyond! It was a pleasure to work with Chi & Rhobin both, and I would 100% work with them again.

My husband and I purchased our condo and besides purchasing a couch, table and chair, had no idea where to begin when it came to decorating our spaces. We were overwhelmed with options and weren't sure how to represent our individual styles in one cohesive design. Rhobin and Chi were a pleasure to work with and were patient with us as we worked to design our dream spaces. They pushed us out of our comfort zones and helped us create the perfect environment for our condo. From furniture to artwork to accessories, they helped us with it all. We have received so many compliments from family and friends and are absolutely in love with our home. Rhobin and Chi were professional, kind and quick to respond to emails. We highly recommend them for your design needs. You won't be disappointed!
