Stepping inside of RH Modern—the first freestanding store for Restoration Hardware's new, first-of-its-kind retail platform—is like being directly transported into the minimalist mecca of your most magical dreams. From the palm tree-clad terrace kissed by the sun to the luxe yet lean room presentations to the sophisticated statement artwork (guests are greeted by two massive Retna pieces), this is RH's coolest concept to date.
Besides offering the perfect Instagram opportunity at every corner, what excites us about RH Modern is that it offers a fresh and refined take on Restoration Hardware's signature antique-minded aesthetic. Sophisticated touches include rich brass and bronze hardware, glass and aged mirrors, platform and canopy beds, oversized ottomans, sofas and sectionals with integrated accent tables, dramatic sculptural lighting, floating lounge chairs and vanities, luxurious leathers, rustic and refined woods, and more.
"So many talented people came together to collaborate on RH Modern," explains RH chairman and CEO Gary Friedman. "Artists, artisans, art directors, architects, designers, photographers, merchants, and manufacturers from around the world all contributed their own unique gift and point of view. I especially want to thank Fabien Baron, who worked with us to blur the lines between magazine and catalog, creating a contemporary and revolutionary mark and voice for our brand across our Source Book, website and advertising campaign."
Take a spin around the stunning scene above, and stop by soon to score next-level inspo for you home, office, patio, and more.
RH Modern Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 7pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
