Meet Bob Knapp, the man behind the scenes who makes all things that are conceivable, achievable, at Tiger Lily’s. A husband, father, co-worker, craftsman and visionary, Bob is truly a jack of all trades.
A founding partner alongside his wife Betsy, Bob traded in his hard hat after more than 20 years in commercial construction, to bring Betsy’s dream to reality. Her wish to one day own a design house that would allow clients to imagine and create, came to life in 1991 with the opening of Tiger Lily’s.
What was once a small show room with a single upholsterer has truly come full bloom, with more than 2,000-square-feet of design space and 14 artisans supervised under Bob’s direction. The now family business offers a range of services with its core focus footed in custom craftsmanship.
In addition to the upholstery and antiques collection, Bob will play an intricate role in the spring 2013 launch of Tiger Lily’s own collection of modern furnishings and accessories available for wholesale and retail. The collection will debut at the Architectural Digest Show.
