One of the grandest RH (formerly Restoration Hardware) locations to date has opened in Indianapolis.

The luxe home furnishings retailer has opened a “gallery” at the 151-acre DeHaan Estate, the former home of philanthropist Christel DeHaan. The new RH features 62,000 sq. ft. of space and represents “one of the largest, most inspiring and immersive physical expressions of the brand to date,” the company said.

The landmark property — considered one of the most accurate Palladian-style villas ever built in the United States — has been reimagined with  respect for its original vision as a prestigious private residence. 

The space integrates furnishings and other items from RH’s interiors, contemporary, modern and outdoor collections with rare art, antiques and artifacts from across the globe. The interior design studio includes a private presentation room, state-of-the-art technology and design libraries showcasing a vast assortment of textiles, furniture and lighting finishes. 

RH Indianapolis also reflects the company’s  ongoing foray into hospitality. An elegant restaurant, "The Dining Room," boasts a 27-foot vaulted ceiling and a light installation desiged to evoke rain through its 210 glass pendants. The restaurant — long with a gold-marble "Wine Bar and Terrace " — overlooks a 35-acre private lake, lush formal gardens and forest landscapes.

Guests enter RH Indianapolis through hand-forged iron doors into a curved foyer – the first in a striking sequence of rooms showcasing inspiring interior vistas, Italian-travertine floors and solid walnut doors handcrafted in Paris.

An elliptical floating stair of stacked St. Germain French limestone that rises nearly 30 feet to culminate in a domed ceiling brings visitors to the upper level, home to RH’s bedroom furnishings.

“The DeHaan Estate is one of the most magical properties in North America, and we are honored to open its gates to the public for the first time,” said Rh chairman and CEO Gary Friedman “From the immaculately groomed grounds and tree lined driveway, to the massive stone terrace and boat dock overlooking the lake and forest, and the perfectly proportioned rooms filled with natural light from the abundance of windows, RH Indianapolis is a place to come and dream, be inspired by the architecture; get lost in the views, enjoy a meal in the grand ballroom or sip a glass of wine while strolling through the gardens.”

RH Indianapolis is located at 4501 North Michigan Road.
