Robert Sherwood is the founder and Design Director of this well received interior design practice. Based in Cape Town, South Africa, our projects are installed both locally and internationally. With 30 years of experience in both residential and commercial projects , we have a good understanding of architecture, interior design, landscaping and the curation of art. We offer a full turnkey service to meet our clients design brief.


We offer the following services:

Robert and his team’s design approach is a bespoke service . Robert’s design & decorating style portrays spaces of elegance and comfort, combined with whimsical objet and art. Our clients’ valuable feedback describes the joy that each individual space offers.

The schematic part of all the designs is certainly the most fundamental yet playful part of the service. Here the team research, source, interpret and conceptualize the look and feel of each scheme. With a collection of materials, fabrics, art & design sketches, the concept evolves into a beautiful visual & tangible presentation.

Following the schematic planning with selected materials, the spatial planning & furniture design takes form. Our CAD technicians are responsible for generating this crucial part of the design by producing a visual understanding of the layout and its general ergonomics. From these working drawings both contractors and manufacturers produce precision-made areas & furniture respectively.

We grasp the importance of three dimensional presentations to clients and we are equipped to complete photorealistic renders or artistic hand renderings as part of the design studios service.

As a collector of art, Robert has developed an eye for intriguing artworks that become the narrative thread of the interior spaces he designs. Our understanding of the scale and proportion of the architecture and interiors makes curation of art a sought after service by clients.

The final and most administrative part of the design process is procurement, orchestrating the buying and supplying of all that is involved in the final installation of the design. With our hands-on knowledge of the overall project, procuring can be controlled, evaluated and addressed easily.

RSD offer our clients a complete service package from initial design development to the finishing touches of a decorating service. As designers the value of our designs can truly be appreciated when an initial concept evolves into a well rounded interior space by the time of installation.
With our lists of personal vetted contacts in and around the design field, the selecting, purchasing and installation can be fully managed by the team. The client can thus look forward to a care free design & installation.

This is a section of a DAN HALTER artwork which is made of hand woven inkjet print of a 100 RMB on archival paper. The entire artwork of this Chinese currency  100 YUAN is 1680 mm long. #❤️ Zoom in and have a look at the weaving detail - especially near the edge of the note. @danhalter #portrait #chairmanmaozedong

Just love the DAVID HOCKNEY SUMO BOOK which is displayed on the Marc Newson stand at the showroom.  You can have a different artwork each day. #portraits robertsherwooddesign #breestreetcapetown
As someone involved with interiors and architecture it is such an incredible blessing when you find a contractor who supports your vision and delivers a product of such quality. They are not just people who do woodwork- they are passionate crafts men and women. Thank you @versfeldcustom for your work on this project.  Thanks also needs to be given to all clients who are patrons to the art of design and good craft. This project was for one such person. The space is an addition to the home where the client can exercise/ practice yoga and take some quiet time. Love the way the use of French Oak brought this really high (5m’s) and large space together. #thatisalargerock #robertsherwooddesign
