About Donzella Ltd.
Donzella is a curated gallery space that has specialized in post-war design since its inception in the early 1990s. Largely comprised of works by American interior designers and architects, as well as Italian architects and industrial designers, Paul Donzella's catalog of period furniture and lighting sets exceptional standards of form, quality, and rarity. This same criteria informs an expanded program of contemporary works by sophisticated talents from France, Italy, and the United States, with many pieces created by the artists exclusively for the gallery.
