Never defined or limited by any single era, a Robert Passal interior oozes luxurious style. The designer’s knack for textures, patterns, and the layering and melding of disparate elements has given Passal a reputation as a mastermind of the eclectic. “Like things go together, but then again I’m all about breaking the rules,” he says. With an aesthetic that could be summed up as sophisticated, collected, and curated, he handpicks pieces that will take any room on a trajectory from the mundane to the extraordinary.
