March 2009 - GBRoberts is featured in a Seattle Magazine Article:

BREATHING ROOM, Feng Shui-inspired furniture frees up space in a downtown condo.
"Roberts' strategy for keeping finite square footage feeling spacious began with a little feng shui. While Roberts' style is frankly worldly he's known for furniture simultaneously sleek and curvy, like hot-rod cars or pin-up girls it turns out that the very curviness of his designs gives them feng shui credentials. Because feng shui teaches that the smooth flow of chi, or energy, throughout a room is essential to visual harmony, the lazy S-turns of Roberts' furniture form an unseen riverbed along which energy flows. If invisible vibrations aren't your cup of tea, credit the room's success to aesthetic discipline. Roberts' furniture pieces, most from a collection called Monroe after the famously voluptuous star, fit together like yin with yang, saving floor space and bestowing a sense of well ordered calm that engenders airiness."
