History[edit]

In 1972, Angelo Donghia[1][2] formed Donghia Associates which focused in the areas of residential, hospitality and contract interior design. Previously, Donghia had turned his attention to fabrics and wallcoverings and established &Vice Versa,[3][4] a to-the-trade collection and showroom of fabrics and wallcoverings, which later became Donghia Textiles in 1980. After the first Donghia Showroom opened in Los Angeles, CA in 1976, its success led to the opening of Donghia Furniture which was established two years later. Producing upholstery and casepieces, Mr. Donghia continued with the growth of his companies expanding his network of showrooms and products across the United States.[5] Since his passing in 1985 Donghia was owned and operated as a private company. In the spring of 2005, the company was purchased by the Rubelli Group of Venice, Italy, a family business and designer and manufacturer of textiles.[6]
