Robert and Josyane Young are the experts behind Robert Young Antiques in Battersea and also run this sought-after design consultancy. They take on just two to three projects concurrently, interweaving historical accuracy and respect for architecture with what Robert lightly terms ‘the occasional rough accent’.


Rivière was founded in 1983, evolving out of demand from the antiques shop’s clients. Robert and Josyane trained, respectively, at Sotheby’s and the V&A, and navigate between contemporary and traditional spaces. They design, source and commission everything from specialist paint finishes to art.


Focusing mainly on private houses, Rivière is currently creating guest rooms in a house in Highgate, and working on a small Georgian town house in Kensington and a hunting lodge in Belgium. Robert and Josyane recently completed a seventeenth-century house in Highgate and a nineteenth-century family house in Notting Hill.
