Robin Wilson is a pioneer in eco-friendly interior design since 2000. Her goal is to come a leading global lifestyle brand across multiple categories. Her focus is on guiding consumers to asthma and allergy free options – and her commitment grew out of a childhood suffering from these maladies. Today, she is an ambassador to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, and her brand is sold by retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohls and JCPenney, among others under both the Robin Wilson Home and NestHome brands. She has appeared on television and in print as an expert – from the national news to HGTV, LX-TV and before live studio audiences.
Her licensed brand of made-in-the-USA cabinetry sold over $80 million (wholesale) from 2009-2016. In 2010, she began a licensed brand of textiles and in 2013 she was a spokesperson for Panasonic USA for their home product launch. She is the author of two award-winning books, CLEAN DESIGN (2015) and Kennedy Green House (2010), which has a foreword written by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. She also appears on the Queen Boss show (BET/CENTRIC) as a guest judge, in this Shark Tank type show that benefits women of color as they chase their entrepreneurial dreams.
What Does Black History Month Mean To You This Year?
Every year, this holiday serves to remind all of us that a Eurocentric history that is taught in schools must be supplemented by recognition of people of color in building this wonderful nation. Many stories are about slavery, and this month allows us to learn more about the breadth of invention, innovation and interesting facts from those who created the traffic light, built the capital, and leading architects who designed LAX Airport, the Philadelphia Art Museum, or the amazing movie, “Hidden Figures” which showcases the contribution of black women mathematicians to the NASA program.
Where Are You Finding Inspiration Today To Create Design This Year?
Right now I am very interested in the chess board as a design inspiration – squares of black and ivory, intertwined in one location.
