On July 11, Robina Benson Design House, luxury furniture and art gallery, welcomed its partnership with lifestyle brand Giorgetti Italy through a celebration at its Los Angeles flagship on Melrose Avenue. Founded by interior designer Robina Benson, the full-service, concierge-style design company offers curated resources for both residential and hospitality projects, providing for clients’ design needs by creating custom solutions that include- but are not limited to—their exclusive partnerships with many coveted high end Italian brands. Robina Benson proudly includes Giorgetti Italy on that list of partnerships; founded in 1898, the Italian brand specializes in products that prioritize linear, geometric shapes softened with occasional delicate curves, expressed in the leather, textiles and wood.
Co-hosted by Benson and Carlota Espinosa, the soirée allowed guests including Dorothy Lucey, Lisa Breckenridge, Kelly Atterton, Eve Gerber and Gulla Jonsdottir intimate access to the showroom, where they enjoyed handcrafted artisanal Italian cocktails, charcuterie boards and chef-prepared bites with a savory gelato to follow. As attendees admired the newest Giorgetti Italy collections, they also browsed a special exhibition of work by award-winning photographer Michael Haber, the New York City native known for his high profile campaigns for clients like Neiman Marcus as well as his fine art practice throughout his 25-year career. His artwork felt at home in the space, which is arranged in domestic-inspired vignettes that give clients a true sense of living with the designs offered at Robina Benson Design House.
