David Robinson
Founder and Principal Designer


David is recognized as one of the industry's most accomplished interior designers and has been responsible for innovative interior spaces in Southern California and across the US since starting his business in 1984. Selected for prominent hospitality and residential projects, he fuses classic and contemporary styles with the latest in technology, dramatic lighting and native materials.

A sampling of signature projects range from a luxury boutique hotel in Palm Springs, to the award-winning Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens in both Escondido and Liberty Station, to San Diego's iconic entry sign at Gaslamp Quarter. David's firm has also designed spectacular estate interiors from Rancho Santa Fe to Jackson Hole. 

Complemented by the work of Cynthia Brown, who became his business partner in 2012, David's architectural degrees allow for projects that require a scope and expertise that is beyond most interior designers. David is never far away from his passion of photography and digital painting and his achievements in these areas bring a personality to projects that is a hallmark of Robinson Brown Design.

David is a native of Bermuda and was educated at Warwick Academy and Northcliff in England before obtaining a Bachelor of Architecture from McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Lured by an opportunity to design exhibits in a private airport for Howard Hughes, David moved to La Jolla in 1976 and stayed.
