RH opens 40,000-sq.-ft. store in West Hollywood, Calif.


Corte Madera, Calif.--RH (Restoration Hardware Holdings) announced today the opening of its store, RH The Gallery, in West Hollywood, Calif.

With nearly 40,000 total interior and exterior square feet, the space features artistic abstractions and never-seen-before collections of home furnishings in a gallery setting.

“Our vision is to create an environment that blurs the lines between residential and retail, interiors and exteriors, offline and online, and celebrates the creative spirit of West Hollywood and the Los Angeles Design District,” said RH Chairman & CEO Gary Friedman.

Shoppers enter through striking, 15-foot steel gates inspired by the work of late 20th-century Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa, and step into a decomposed granite courtyard flanked by dramatic loggias, complete with giant banana palms, creeping vines and the sound of trickling fountains. Walking through a 28-foot threshold of retractable steel and glass doors, they continue into the Gallery’s central hall with soaring 14-foot ceilings. Barrel-vaulted passageways lead to a classical arrangement of rooms with artistic lifestyle installations featuring collections from renowned designers and artisans from across the globe.

A grand double staircase brings visitors to the second floor, reflecting light from a composition of antique mirrors cascading down from the atrium skylight spanning 40 feet, three floors above. An installation of 10 brass chandeliers, with diameters reaching five feet, punctuates the stairwell, creating an endless reflection and illuminating the climb to the floors above.

The second floor offers views of the Hollywood Hills through the 28-foot retractable glass wall that opens onto an expansive balcony. The second floor also features 1,000-sq.-ft. outdoor garden terraces with tracery metal trellises accented with canvas and climbing jasmine pandorea vines.

A 10,000-sq.-ft. rooftop park, composed in the spirit of the famed Jardin des Tuileries in Paris, in on the top level. It features a grove of 18, nearly century-old heritage olive trees surrounded by decomposed granite and set within colossal steel planters accented with cascading rosemary.
