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, the Opera Club at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center, St. Andrews Golf Club and Omni International Hotels, as well as several others.
However, what truly set Angelo Donghia apart from his contemporaries was his inclination toward business and an entrepreneurial spirit that, when combined with his innate sense of design, drove the creation of several successful product lines and numerous licensing ventures.
Today, Donghia, Inc. produces furniture, textiles, lighting and accessories that reflect Angelo Donghia’s design philosophy of pared down elegance. Donghia’s unique style smoothly combines comfort and style, traditional and modern design.
In the spring of 2005, the company was purchased by the Rubelli Group, allowing the Donghia brand to continue to grow and flourish both in the United States and internationally. With a forty year history at the forefront of the luxury home furnishings industry, Donghia represents American design at its best.
