Guild Founders Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch present a radical vision for the home and a way of living that is not just beautiful and luxurious; it is deeply connected to nature, culture, and community.  Following in a tradition of visionaries who create forms, shapes, and ideas, every piece has a story.  Construction quality is stubbornly uncompromising, championing natural materials, and the master craftsmen and artisans who have dedicated their lives to proven, ancient techniques and methods.  One of our cornerstones is repairability, Roman and Williams Guild Original Designs are about endurance and can be maintained and repaired.  The original furniture and lighting designs by Robin and Stephen are heirlooms made to last for generations.
