The lovely folks over at Restoration Hardware Leawood were kind enough to invite me to join the Private Opening of the new space. It was positively stunning. RH Modern Living Space RH Modern Bedroom RH Leawood Exterior RenderingHere’s a little background (and the details)

·       RH Leawood represents the latest iteration of the brand’s next-generation design galleries, which integrates an even greater assortment of RH collections, including current offerings and new businesses.

·       Commanding three floors and more than 55,000 total interior and exterior square feet, this innovative new retail concept blurs the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, physical and digital. The gallery features artistic abstractions and never-before-seen collections of luxury home furnishings in a gallery setting, including significant presentations of the brand’s latest business concepts, RH Modern and RH Design Atelier.

·       RH Leawood marks RH Chairman & CEO Gary Friedman’s continued collaboration with design architect James Gillam of Backen, Gillam & Kroeger, a firm recognized as one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 architect and design firms in the world.

·       Conceptualized as a transparent, multi-level contemporary building filled with fresh air and natural light, RH Leawood features a charcoal grey Venetian plaster exterior with an expanse of glass-and-steel French doors.

·       Looking overhead, guests will admire lush garden terraces on level two and a 10,000-square-foot Rooftop Park with a grove of quaking aspen trees and a display of the latest RH Outdoor furnishings.

·       On the second level, guests will discover a 10,000-square-foot exhibition space presenting RH Modern, one of the largest curated and fully integrated assortments of modern furnishings, lighting and décor under one brand in the world. Developed in collaboration with a select group of acclaimed global designers, RH Modern is defined by a minimalist aesthetic, the finest materials and maximum comfort. This immersive space seamlessly incorporates RH Contemporary Art – showcasing fine art, sculpture and photography from a globally curated roster of artists.

·       Level two also features RH Design Atelier – a dedicated, 5,000-square-foot studio anchored by two 25-foot custom tables offering a fully integrated workspace for architects, designers and customers to reimagine one room or an entire home, inside and out. Here, guests can work with the highly experienced RH design team – or their own interior designers and architects – to create functional and elegant spaces. A place for collaboration and ideation, RH Design Atelier features access to RH’s vast library of fabrics, leathers, rug swatches and furniture and lighting finishes, providing an unprecedented level of design services.

·       Additional RH Design Atelier resources include a Ben Soleimani rug showroom displaying the fourth-generation designer’s hand-knotted and hand-woven rugs, and other specialized galleries for window treatments, bed and bath linens and bath hardware.

And back to the gorgeous interiors after Shannon and I were acting ridiculous.

Completely worth driving 3 hours up to KC and then 3 hours back after we were finished. Much love to my stunning date of the evening- Shannon Oleen. Go check her out, she’s insanely talented and driven and I adore her. She won’t brag on herself, so I TOTALLY will, go look at her page. I adore her.

I’ll have more posts about this store and what makes it different another time, but I hope you all enjoy this!
