Robert "Rob" Takehara
Rob brings three decades of design experience in home fashion throughout the Puget Sound area. He desires to help clients create beauty, comfort, and uniqueness within their interior spaces. From dressing up windows and harnessing natural light to create the perfect ambiance, to discovering the ideal tile design, or finding the right flooring; the goal is to have an experience worth remembering and referring.


“I always want clients to feel like the process of beautifying their home is a fun and entertaining journey. One where we help them find their ‘spark,’ apply their likes and visions to the products, and enjoy the collaborative success when complete.”  


In Rob’s free time he enjoys sports, music, tries to stay in shape with some hiking, and never seems to run out of yard work. He spends much of his time with his cat, Callie. To reach Rob, please e-mail him at robert@cartozian.com or call 253.474.8433.
