After graduating with a business studies degree from the University of the West of England in Bristol, Orlando Atty was inducted into the world of Robert Kime Ltd in 2010. What began as a summer job developed into a full-time, fascinating role, guided by the mentorship of Robert himself. Relishing the opportunity to learn, an immersion in the warehouses and showrooms soon followed. Buying trips with Robert, at home and abroad began to cast a light on the qualities and allure of the individual object and fuelled a passion for antiques, rooms and interiors. The inherent stories embedded in what they were buying became a large part of the pursuit and as the company grew, so too did the chance to work on decorating projects and the development of the Robert Kime collection. In 2016, Orlando was appointed Managing Director of Robert Kime Ltd which today is based in Ebury Street, London, Marlborough, Wiltshire, and represented in five US showrooms, under his leadership.
The unique legacy and broad sensibilities of the late Robert Kime continue to be embodied by the company in their eclectic offering of antiques, rugs, textiles and art as well as in numerous decorating projects, alongside the growing Robert Kime collection of fabrics, wallpapers, furniture and lighting.
