Donghia expands

Donghia, Inc. – founded by Angelo Donghia, one of America’s most influential and sought after designers- today produces furniture, textiles, lighting and accessories which were sold exclusively to interior designers and architects through Donghia’s fifty representative showrooms around the world including London’s Chelsea Harbour. Now under the stewardship of the Rubelli Group which purchased the Donghia brand in 2005, the company is continuing to grow and flourish both in the United States and internationally. The latest manifestation of this growth is the union this month with New York based White Webb and their 12 showrooms across the US.
As a company, Donghia, Inc. has consistently reflected the dynamic and innovative approach to design that its founder, Angelo Donghia, was renowned for. A fine aesthetic sensibility, discerning eye for quality and concern for comfort in the complete lifestyles that he created made Angelo Donghia one of America’s most influential and sought after interior designers. During the 1970’s and 80’s his client roster included many prominent celebrities and personalities, including Liza Minelli, Donald and Ivana Trump, Diana Ross, Calvin Klein, and Ralph Lauren, while his commercial projects included the worldwide headquarters of PepsiCo, as well as the Opera Club at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.

Today, the product lines still reflect Angelo Donghia’s design philosophy of pared down elegance. Donghia’s unique style smoothly combines comfort and style, traditional and modern design. As new business partners White Webb say: “In the design world, the words ‘classic, elegant and timeless’ tend to be overused and frequently misapplied, but there’s no better description for Donghia”
