Restoration Hardware, New York

An "idea inspiring" homeware store

An "idea inspiring" homeware store

Rupert Bentley-Smith

By hardware, I think they mean high end, hotel-style, hooks, he-man shaped towel knobs, and heritage-chic handles - for everything. All of this is partially hidden by the Chesterfield sofas and their seductively plump cushions, sat next to the salvaged wood farm tables all of which are surrounded by Belgian linen and Thai silk curtains.

RH (as it's been rebranded) is a very safe bet for wedding and housewarming gifts but also has some interesting links to contemporary art, commissioning work, curating galleries and hosting exhibitions. They are looking at expansion into hotels, restaurants, architecture and music - having already hand picked a selection of young singer songwriters and put them on show at the Highline Ballroom.
Great looking brand seemingly interested in everything, and full of much that is interesting. You can even pick up a complimentary bottle of Perrier to sup whilst you peruse the store!
