Passion for design
Ethnic Chic is an internationally oriented design agency, based in Amsterdam and recently in New York. Co-owner and interior designer Robin Toetenel has been working within the field for about a decade and has grown Ethnic Chic from a store in the 9 Streets to a design agency working on a variety of residential and commercial commissions. In addition, Ethnic Chic has a blog with International design inspiration and an online boutique shop with a large selection of exclusive brands.
“We regularly work abroad. We are currently working on projects in Belgium, Bahrain and Italy and previously worked in Dubai and the Fiji Islands. Our passion for design and interior design is in everything we do. Inspiration and influences from different cultures form the basis of our business. Years ago, these influences entered Europe via the Silk Road from China to India and finally as far as Venice. These influences created new styles and techniques; an ‘Ethnic’ mix.”
This is exactly what sets Ethnic Chic apart, because don’t ask Robin Toetenel to pigeonhole their style: “No, I find that so difficult. Each project is completely different. We actually reinvent ourselves every time. We do differentiate ourselves in that we are very fond of craftsmanship and handwork and have a lot made in our own workshop. An eye for detail and a perfect finish are important in this regard.”
