Design house Thibaut acquires assets of high-end designer

UNION, N.J. – Design house Thibaut has acquired the assets of Rosemary Hallgarten, a designer and supplier of exclusive luxury rugs, fabrics, and accessories with an established reputation in the interior design community, for an undisclosed sum.

Hallgarten will remain with the company as its chief creative officer.

“Rosemary Hallgarten is one of the most compelling luxury brands in the design industry,” said Rick Kilmer, Thibaut CEO. “The opportunity to not only expand the current business but also work with Rosemary to unlock even more experiential creativity is an opportunity that rarely comes along.”

Kilmer said Thibaut is excited to partner with Rosemary and her entire team to leverage the company’s recent investments in infrastructure and talent.

Hallgarten said she formed her company with an emphasis on “authenticity, thoughtful sustainability, and the stewardship and support of the local artisans” behind her designs. Today, the company boasts a significant client list with installations in several countries that are supported by a multi-channel network of corporate and partner showrooms, according to the designer.

“As my business has continued to grow, I have been contemplating, as many founders do, how to scale while staying true to my original vision of creating authentically artisanal, luxurious and inspiring products,” Hallgarten said. “My goal has been to gain more creative freedom. Meeting Rick, who values and understands the importance of the unique luxury brand my team has created over 20 years and learning more about Thibaut’s operational excellence and industry reputation, a partnership provided a clear solution.”

Hallgarten said she’s excited for this next chapter to focus on creating and developing product in both existing and new categories.
