About the event
Meet Robin Winson, a Titan in Clean Design
Robin Wilson has spent the last two decades breaking down barriers and overcoming hurdles to achieve success. Despite systemic racism that excluded her from obtaining financing, she was one of the first pioneers of the eco-friendly design movement. She's the first woman to have a custom cabinetry line sold at 400 dealers nationwide and the second Black woman (after legendary B Smith) to have a textile line at Bed Bath & Beyond.
Robin Wilson is an author, designer, and clean living guru.
She is the founder of Robin Wilson Home in New York City. She's been interviewed on NBC's "Today Show" and featured in O, The Oprah Magazine.
Wilson founded her business about 20-years ago. She worked at an executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles when it went public in 1999. The company's IPO gave Wilson enough money to pursue her passions, she said, of design, project management, and real estate. That's when she started Robin Wilson Home.
In 2009, Wilson's custom cabinetry line, made in the USA, was picked up to be sold at 400 dealers nationwide. She generated $82 million wholesale, of which she got a licensed percentage.
