Editorial Reviews

Review

"Things We Made is a soulful half-catalogue, half-scrapbook page-turner that chronicles the duo's somewhat rebellious, always innovative projects." ~V Magazine

"Dark and brooding, filled with flowers and steam pipes, circles and stars, it’s the strongest book from any interior designer in the past half decade." ~New York Daily News

“The new book by Roman and Williams reveals the inspiration behind the design duo’s most famous projects but also a deeply passionate and incredibly creative world.” ~One Kings Lane

About the Author

Following a career as Hollywood production designers, Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer founded Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors in 2002. The New York firm’s scope includes buildings, interior design, and product lines, where they place a premium on such aesthetic juxtapositions as high/low and spare/baroque. Former Surfing magazine editor Jamie Brisick writes for the New York Times and Details, and has authored two books, including Have Board Will Travel. Actor and film director/producer Ben Stiller is a prolific talent. Standefer and Alesch did the production design for Zoolander and Duplex and designed his homes.

Wonderful selection of their work. Truly creative. There are many commercial spaces in the book which is a nice change.

Roman and Williams have designed some of the most iconic rooms of our times. The Boom Boom room is extraordinary. Their sketches which are quite intricate and detailed are simply out of this world. What I do not like is that a lot of the images seem dark, moody and gloomy. Maybe is because they use so much dark wood in their projects. That does not take away the fact that they are really good at what they do. It's always good to have a different perspective in the interior design realm.

Beautiful projects, love their voice, want their design studio space! Recognize some places I've stayed at and admired the design, before I knew it was Roman & Williams. Now I love those places even more.

Always wanted to know who did the sets for Zoolander! Had no idea it was them! Very timeless yet timely. I would have likes a bit more text, hence four stars instead of five.

I have known the author for over two decades. This book is a beautiful shot and written compendium of some of his company's work, and he and his wife's personal spaces--they are so talented. Beauty, humor and warmth permeates every page. Buy this.
