Robert Bakes, Company President, calls on his years of experience as owner and operator of a kitchen design studio in central London, as well as his popular former brand, Bakes & Company, based in Sag Harbor. Over the course of his accomplished career, Bob has developed an expansive knowledge of the interior design process and professional project management skills. His sophisticated signature style is often requested by name.
Paul Kropp, Chief Operations Officer, is a skilled woodworker and master craftsman. With over 20 years experience, Paul’s artistry and proficiency have helped him become one of the leading millwork experts in the country. For the last decade, Paul’s former brand, Kropp Woodworking, produced internationally sought-after fine furniture, countertops, and cabinetry, and was the avenue through which Bob and Paul formed the ideal partnership.
Bakes and Kropp, a perfect partnership of design and craftsmanship. Drawing on their individual strengths and leading a team of talented employees, Bob and Paul have created a company greater than the sum of its parts. This is evident the first time you visit a showroom or meet with a designer. Then the feeling is strengthened as you progress through the process of bringing your space to life.
