Caroline Robert


Caroline Robert has made a name for herself and her business Perch, a uniquely curated shop and design business she opened in New Orleans more than 10 years ago. She is perhaps most revered for her ability to effortlessly combine vintage, contemporary, and antique pieces in a single design project. Her love for antiques met with her ability to see past the fraying and fading has led her to her most recent endeavor: operating her own custom upholstery and window treatment workroom called New Orleans Dry Goods.

Her relationships with her clients are of the utmost importance, with no project too big or small for Caroline and her team. Whether a neighbor is in need of a color consultation, a new client is embarking on a ground-up build, or Brand Jordan is needing assistance designing Michael Jordan’s birthday party, her confidence and effervescence are unmatched. Over the years she has volunteered and served on many important boards in the city including Longue Vue House and Gardens, as well as Eden House, a home for women who are victims of human trafficking.
