Fortuny launch at Dessin Fournir

On November 1, coveted design gallery Dessin Fournir celebrated the launch of famed Venetian textile company Fortuny at its Los Angeles flagship in the heart of La Cienega Design Quarter. An evening co-hosted by Dessin Fournir founder Chuck Comeau and Fortuny’s Mickey Riad and Maury Riad, the event also served as a benefit for Venetian Heritage, a nonprofit organization with the aim to increase awareness of the immense legacy of Venetian art in Italy.

The dedicated 425-square-foot Fortuny space within Dessin Fournir “was designed to immerse our clients for just a moment in Fortuny’s rich cultural heritage,” says Comeau. “We have used referential icons to transform the space and to stir our clients’ imaginations.”

A highlight of the night included al fresco performances by renowned soprano Summer Watson, who sang Italian operatic classics. Notable guests included designers Suzanne Rheinstein, Mark Weaver, Oliver M. Furth, Todd Nickey, Kim Alexandriuk, Wendy Haworth, Hal SwansonDan Ollis, Malcolm James Kutner, Alexandra Loew and Natasha Baradaran.
