US designer ceramics company Rosanna Inc has chosen The DRH Collection to distribute the range in the UK.
Rosanna was originally distributed in the UK by WGM, which ceased trading at the start of this year. John Curtis, who spotted the range at the New York Gift Fair and launched it into the UK for WGM in September 2004, has joined DRH as a consultant and will be responsible for working with major customers on re-establishing the brand.
“Rosanna is actually Rosanna Bowles, the designer, and her husband Mimmo,” said Curtis. “It’s a family-run business and they take real pride in their products. We were making good inroads into the UK market and it’s great to have the opportunity with DRH to continue building the brand.”
DRH managing director David Holmes said the Rosanna range fitted perfectly with the company’s up-market product offer, which includes fellow US companies Artland, for glass, and BIA, for ceramics. He described Rosanna as having enjoyed “extraordinary growth, and we’re sure we’ll be able to grow the Rosanna brand in the UK.”
The DRH Collection will be exhibiting the range at the upcoming Autumn Fair.
