Company History

Donghia, Inc. has consistently reflected the dynamic and innovative approach to design that its founder, Angelo Donghia, was renowned for.

Donghia's collections of furniture, textiles, wallcoverings, lighting and accessories are sold through Donghia's twelve showrooms across the United States and in over fifty representative showrooms throughout the world. Pieces within the collection complement and enhance each other and can seamlessly fit into any residential or commercial decor.

Donghia furniture ranges from upholstered sofas, chairs, tables and casepieces.  The furniture combines both glamour and simplicity through the use of the finest materials and detailing. Upholstered furniture features hand-tied springs, hand sculptured interiors, and solid hardwood frames constructed with wood joints and dowels. This focus on comfort becomes instantly evident to all who experience Donghia furniture.

Donghia’s exceptional collection of accessories includes lamps, chandeliers, and mirrors handmade by craftsmen on the island of Murano, Italy. The centuries old craft of Venetian glass blowing produces singular works of art.

Donghia textiles can be sophisticated or simple, familiar or exotic. Unique designs, innovative color combinations, and complex weaves combine to create textiles that epitomize Donghia’s distinct vision.

Through the design leadership of Creative Director Chuck Chewning, Donghia continues to evolve.  Mr. Chewning’s almost 30 years in the interior design, decorative arts, and architectural preservation industries are visible in Donghia’s collections.  In 2005, Donghia, Inc. was acquired by Rubelli, the iconic Venetian textiles company. The 125-year-old Rubelli Group also owns Dominique Kieffer and Armani/Casa Exclusive Textiles by Rubelli. Rubelli and Donghia are perfect fit, offering the very best in international design. In 2012, Andrea Favaretto Rubelli was appointed CEO of Donghia.

With a forty year history at the forefront of the luxury home furnishings industry, Donghia represents the philosophy of living A Well Tailored Life.
