About Us

Since its inception, R & S Design Gallery, has been known for superior-quality marble urns.  First known as Robinson & Sons Enterprises of America, the business began in 1985 in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Founder Hewitt Robinson, an admitted perfectionist with an artist’s eye, knew there was a need for beautifully-crafted marble urns and at affordable pricing. After seeing so many poor-quality urns that had been cracked in tooling then re-glued or poorly-polished or dull urns which offered bland styling, Robinson was convinced he could provide the best marble urn in the industry.

Robinson’s two-fold goal was to supply the memorial industry with jewel-like marble products and to provide jobs to support an under-employed community.  So, in 1985 Robinson started a memorial urn business with a selection of 5 urns in 5 marble choices.   

Determined to achieve outstanding quality, Robinson hired the finest marble craftsmen he could find.  Each artisan would be responsible for inspecting every unit before it was shipped.  To date, a team of artisans as well as support people ensure that each marble urn is cut from one stone so to match the lid to base, that each is blemish-free and that each is packed securely to arrive undamaged.  “Details make the difference!”, was Robinson’s motto.

In 2003, the business expanded to include interior décor pieces.  Marble columns (also available as columbaria), fountains, statues, candle holders and bathroom accessories were added.  That year, his daughter, Rahila Robinson, joined the business.

In 2008, Rahila Robinson, established as premier marble urn supplier, expanded to offer specialty interior design marble products such as counter tops, marble tile (floor and bath), and marble sinks.

To date, marble and stone urn selections have increased to over 50 models using 20 different stones.  Exclusives such as Pebble stone and Galaxy marble plus high-quality Rock Salt urn round out the line. Recently introduced mosiacs – a unique blending of different stones fashioned to create dramatically beautiful urns, are in demand due to exquisite styling.   

Value-added customization has long been available. Custom designs and personalized engravings ensure that each piece is as exceptionally unique as each individual.

R& S Design products are sold through a distribution network and each distributor is considered a valued partner.  Personalized attention and priority handling for each order are standard business practice.  Full turn-key service and customized support is provided to ensure a successful relationship. We guarantee satisfaction!

The perfectionist spirit of Hewitt Robinson remains today and is evident in R&S Design Gallery’s extreme attention to detail and unsurpassed quality. You’ll find no better!
