ROHL Celebrates Italian Style with Alessandra Branca and Hearst Design Group

Chicago Design Summit

Irvine, CA – August 30, 2016 - Collaborating with the Hearst Design Group, Veranda Editor in Chief, Clinton Smith and Elle Décor “A” List winner, interior designer, Alessandra Branca, ROHL will celebrate authentic luxury for the kitchen and bath, ”Italian Style”, at the Chicago Design Summit, September 14, 2016. Now in its second year, the Chicago Design Summit has become the Midwest’s largest residential design summit featuring presentations by industry experts, CEU seminars and new product debuts.


During a special presentation at 1pm in the ROHL suite at LuxeHome, Branca, an award-winning, Italian born interior designer and Smith will explore the special beauty of the ROHL Italian Collections.  They will discuss the legacy of Italian design, its importance and influence on the world, as well as how the ROHL Collections are a reflection of fabulous classic design, whether in traditional, transitional or modern styles.


“Italian heritage and craftsmanship are a core part of the ROHL brand,” said Lou Rohl, CEO and Managing Partner, ROHL. “More than 33 years ago, many of our first design discoveries were in the Lago d’Orta lake region of Italy. Just north of the lake is a little town called Alzo, which translated means village of faucets. Several of our design series have been inspired by this region and we continue to work with our Italian partners to bring products that focus on design and attention to detail to the American market.”


The daughter of an artist, Branca fell in love at a young age with architecture and art history. That love continued when she moved to the United States and today she designs spaces that mix the refined with the relaxed. "Alessandra’s ability to create personal, artful spaces is unparalleled,” said Smith. “She is loved by her clients, and is admired throughout the industry for her talent and professionalism, and for being one of the very best.”


This year’s Chicago Design Summit features more than 30 CEU programs, presentations and panels. The daylong event concludes with the VIP Luxury Gala where Branca will be inducted into the Merchandise Mart Hall of Fame.
