CORTE MADERA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RH (NYSE: RH) announced today the opening of RH Columbus, The Gallery at Easton Town Center. RH Columbus represents the brand’s quest to revolutionize physical retailing, and its continued foray into hospitality with a glass-encased Rooftop Restaurant, and Wine & Barista Bar, that open onto a beautifully landscaped park.
Commanding three levels and 60,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, this one-of-a-kind experience features artistic installations of luxury home furnishings in a gallery setting, including full floors of RH Interiors, Modern and Outdoor. RH Columbus also includes an in-house Interior Design Firm & Atelier.
RH Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Gary Friedman commented, “RH Columbus reflects our vision to create architecturally inspiring spaces that blur the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality –spaces that activate all of the senses and create an immersive experience that cannot be replicated online.”
Conceptualized as a transparent, multi-level contemporary structure filled with fresh air and natural light, the Gallery features a striking charcoal grey exterior with an expanse of glass-and-steel French doors that open onto lush garden courtyards and terraces marked by a progression of grandly scaled boxwood topiaries and pleached elm trees.
At the top of a double floating staircase, visitors will arrive to the Rooftop Restaurant – offering a timeless, ingredient-driven menu in a year-round, skylit garden escape beneath a soaring atrium with retractable glass walls, sparkling crystal chandeliers and trellised London plane trees. Seamlessly extending from indoors to out, the restaurant opens onto a beautifully landscaped park. Influenced by the great classical gardens of Europe, yet contemporary in spirit, this one-of-a-kind destination features a series of intimate lounge spaces defined by a layered composition of sculptural evergreens, the sound of trickling fountains and select RH Outdoor collections.
Situated just off the grand stair on level three, the Wine & Barista Bar serves craft espresso, fresh-baked pastries, and artisanal wines to enjoy in the Rooftop Park or while exploring the rest of the gallery.
On level two, visitors will discover RH Modern – the largest curated and fully integrated assortment of modern furnishings, lighting, textiles and décor under one brand in the world – as well as the RH Interior Design Firm & Atelier. This interactive studio features private client presentation rooms with state-of-the-art technology, and an RH Rugs showroom presenting an exclusive collection distinguished by its superlative artistry and exquisite materials.
Guests will pass through a 25-foot threshold of glass and steel on level one, and continue into the central hall with its soaring 14-foot ceilings. Along the periphery, barrel-vaulted passageways lead to a classical arrangement of rooms featuring RH Interiors collections from internationally renowned designers, as well as rare antiques and artifacts from Friedman’s world travels.
RH Columbus is located at 4120 Worth Avenue. The Gallery can be reached at 614.968.8830. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 10am to 9pm, and Sunday 10am until 6pm.
RH (NYSE: RH) is a curator of design, taste and style in the luxury lifestyle market. The Company offers collections through its retail galleries, source books and online at RH.com, RHModern.com, RHBabyandChild.com, RHTEEN.com, and Waterworks.com.
