RH Chairman & CEO Gary Friedman stated, “We are inspired to have the opportunity to partner with Pietro and Merope to reimagine this magnificent Palazzo and restore it to its former glory. At RH we subscribe to the principals of Vitruvius, that the most pleasing environments are a reflection of human design, a study of balance, symmetry and perfect proportions. The Palazzo del Principe di Piombino is an authentic expression of those principles, and we are honored to introduce our brand to the design capital of the world in this extraordinary historic building.”
Pietro Croce, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Merope Asset Management, commented: “We are honored to work with Gary and the RH team to give new life to this exceptional asset. The agreement with RH confirms Merope’s strategy of being able to attract to its unique and trophy properties the highest brands in the world. We are convinced that the RH gallery in Milan will be the place-to-be in this vibrant city”.
