Houston, TX – April 8, 2015, Bering’s is proud to announce that Anne Campbell Robbins, the National Sales Manager of VIETRI, Inc. will be present at a special VIETRI event on April 24 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Bering’s on 3900 Bissonnet. For over 30 years, VIETRI has provided high-quality, handcrafted products for homes that encourage the essence of the Italian lifestyle. The VIETRI brand includes collaborative designs from the best of Italian culture in ceramics and glassware, flatware, and table linens.
VIETRI was founded in 1983 by Lee Gravely and her daughters, Susan and Frances, after a family trip to Italy where they fell in love with the colorful hand painted dinnerware on the Amalfi Coast. VIETRI has grown from a small company representing one Italian factory to the largest Italian importing company in the American tabletop industry. VIETRI has over 40 manufacturers throughout Italy, where master artisans create products in ceramic, stoneware, glass, metals, and textiles. Many artisans are from multiple generations of skilled masters.
A symbol of superior design and artistry, VIETRI’s handcrafted Italian products are regularly seen in most major home, gourmet, fashion and style magazines in America as the pick of editors for style, color, pattern and craftsmanship. VIETRI is regularly featured in countless American magazines including Elle Décor, House Beautiful, Martha Stewart Weddings, BRIDES, Southern Lady, Town & Country, Architectural Digest, and Coastal Living.
Bering’s graciously invites you to join the celebration! Anne will share Italian stories, design inspiration, and decorating ideas. Having lived and studied in Italy, Anne is inspired by all that is irresistibly Italian, and she brings infectious energy and Italian style everywhere she goes. She will even personalize VIETRI purchases with Italian phrases.
Please help welcome Anne, Friday, April 24, from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., at Bering’s on 3900 Bissonnet.
