At the age of 25 with a young family to support, Robert Albert stepped away from his father’s textile company to carve out a future of his own design. He traveled throughout Europe in search of mills that could produce what he envisioned.
In Italy, he partnered with master weavers who possessed generations of experience. With great passion but little money, he built a company one pattern at a time. Across the country, he presented his collections to the prominent interior designers of the day. While Robert’s design aesthetic has evolved over the years, one thing has never wavered and that is his commitment to the professional interior designer. To this end, Coraggio showrooms are to-the trade only, every collection is tightly edited, excellent stock is maintained in Seattle and every order is carefully inspected before it ships. Often, by Robert himself.
