J. Robert Scott, Inc. the luxury home furnishings manufacturer was founded in 1972 in Los Angeles by Hall of Fame designer Sally Sirkin Lewis. The company was born out of Ms. Lewis’ desire to provide her clients with contemporary, well made furnishings that met her uncompromising standards of quality and beauty. Her understated, signature style has become known as “California Design.” To this day, she serves as the President of the company, which has established itself as an influential design force around the world, with company owned showrooms in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas, and London, and representation in 21 cities in 14 countries
Ms. Lewis is recognized in the interior design industry for her achievements in furniture and textile design. Throughout her career she has remained true to her aesthetic philosophy of clean, elegant, contemporary design with uncompromising attention to quality. With influences from the world of couture fashion, J. Robert Scott textiles are worthy of prêt-a-porter. This translates well in the field of home furnishings where upholstery techniques can echo the intricate lines of a one-of-a-kind garment.
Throughout her career, Ms. Lewis has been awarded more than 150 U.S. Design Patents for her furnishings which are manufactured by hand in the 76,000+ square foot factory in Inglewood, California. Through her guidance and direction, J. Robert Scott has gained recognition as an exceptional resource for custom design furniture. It is rare to find a company that can modify any of their existing items, or create an entirely new piece, tailored to the specific needs of their clientele. If it can be drawn, it can be made. It is not unusual to see skilled craftsmen, many of whom have been with Ms. Lewis for more than 20 years, hand sewing the edges of a sofa or patiently applying gold leafing to a console with a squirrel hair brush. The techniques used are the traditional construction methods that date back to the Renaissance, these talented craftsmen are truly modern day artisans.
