House of Rohl Studio Grand Opening
House of Rohl Studio Grand Opening

The House of Rohl celebrated the opening of its first-ever studio in North America. Located in LuxeHome on the first floor of Chicago’s historic Merchandise Mart, the House of Rohl Studio is highlighted by its diverse global brands, Riobel, Perrin & Rowe, Shaws, ROHL and Victoria + Albert.

More than 150 industry professionals attended the grand opening, including senior market editor Carisha Swanson from the Hearst Design Group, senior design and market editor Kathryn Given from Luxe Interiors + Design, associate style and social media editor Clara Haneberg from Traditional Home, and editorial director Patrick O’Toole from SOLA Group.

In addition to touring the new studio, guests enjoyed a “mini concert” from award-winning musicians Chihsuan Yang, Will Liverman and Jess Godwin from 3Arts, and watched the transformation of a custom mosaic created by artists Chris Peck and Megan Shane for the House of Rohl Studio. The evening ended with one lucky attendee, Kathryn Casa of Casa Design Interiors, winning a trip to a House of Rohl country of origin.
