Design, food, and flowers: in the heart of SoHo, NYC, there is a space that combines all the ingredients that make a home unique. They have been chosen and, in some cases, created by designers Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, who founded Guild to fulfil a long-time dream after a long career that started in the Hollywood studios and continued in New York with Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors studio: gathering all the best of objects they created over the years in a single space, which means bringing together stories, people and experiences and making them available.
 
Guild is a space for the senses that tells about different passions combined with a desire for beauty. The Founding Collection designed by Standefer and Alesch is a mix of design objects, furniture pieces, lights and craft accessories selected from all over the world. The style of the creative duo influences every element with its peculiar approach made of eclecticism and irreverence, emerging from the constant search for what they love.
 
How do they do this? They celebrate style by emphasizing its own contradictions, by mixing different period pieces to create cross references and interpreting the evolution of style as a continuous search for contemporary answers to eternal human problems. By maintaining a harmonious unity with a multifaceted surface. And this applies to everything at Guild.
 
La Mercerie Café, home to Chef Marie-Aude Rose, is a French café within Guild where everything comes from the balance between tradition and avant-garde. Flowers and greenery, yet another great passion of Robin Standefer’s and Stephen Alesch’s, find their own space in the much-loved wild floral compositions by Emily Thompson.
Visiting Guild truly is an experience that involves and inspires all the senses. It is an invitation to explore the best of what has built the happiness of its founders over the years  and finding whatever makes you happy in your own home: a taste, an object, a scent, a color, or a sound.
