HISTORIC studio is a boutique interior design firm and retail shop based in the heart of downtown Wayzata. The studio was founded by brothers Robb & Mike Whittlef in 2008. Their goal was to create a family business that delivers the highest level of design service and business integrity to every project. Our retail offerings range from local artisans and makers to found objects from across the globe.
At HISTORIC, we know that style doesn't come standard. We understand that great design involves many decisions, and we aim to help you make the right ones.
Our goal is to provide not only the highest level of service, but also opportunities for unique, one-of-a-kind, and custom pieces that allow your project to speak to your goals and investments. We are focused on creating a home that functions better than a client ever thought possible. We consider all our clients family, and are committed to forging long term relationships; if we work on house number one with a client... our goal is to be there for houses two, three, and four as well.
We believe in a three part design principle:
Timely. Timeworn. Timeless.
This equation gives a modern home soul, a vintage home vitality, and every home a foundation to last a lifetime.
We are continually seeking partnerships with incredible homeowners, talents, architects, and builders both locally and across the globe.
As a full service interior design studio, our expertise includes:
Residential & Commercial Projects
Renovations & Remodeling
Custom Furniture & Lighting Design
