Robert Coyle (October 30, 1937 - July 5, 1998) was a Newark interior designer. During his career, Coyle worked for a New York design team that redecorated Barbara Streisand’s home. An opportunity came for him to redecorate a “showroom” in a Columbus Victorian mansion in 1989 to raise money for the Columbus Museum of Art. He was the first Licking County resident to be invited to participate in the show; he accepted.
