In memory of Robert Kime

Dear all,

It is with great sadness that we add this brief comment to the many obituaries and articles written about the sad death this week of Robert Kime.

Recognised internationally as a great arbiter of taste and design he graced our neighbourhood on and off for many decades. Robert dealt nearly all his life from his childhood, from his University lodgings, his homes, and on several occasions he partnered Piers Westenholz at various shops on The Pimlico Road. 

He opened shops on Kensington Church Street and then Museum Street before returning in great style, opening his eponymous shop on Ebury Street filled with antique furniture, porcelain and works of art , antique textiles, contemporary furniture and his own range of glorious fabrics.

A quiet, softly spoken and gentle man he influenced many of his contemporaries and several generations to come with his inimitable style. We honour one of our

local heroes and dearest friends. 

With deepest sympathy for his family, his friends and all his work colleagues.

Mark Boyce
