RH Modern and RH Design Ateliers to Debut Across Entire Retail Fleet this Fall
RH (Restoration Hardware Holdings, Inc. – NYSE: RH) announced today the introduction of the Fall 2016 Interiors Collection, featuring three dedicated Source Books – RH Interiors, RH Lighting and RH Rugs. At more than 1,100 pages combined, this trio of inspirational design resources has been completely re-imagined by renowned art director Fabien Baron, filled with stunning collections and pieces that reflect a fresh and contemporary point of view. These books also highlight the brand’s collaborative relationships with many of the world’s most renowned and respected designers, capturing the unique design, quality and aesthetic details that differentiate RH within the industry.
“We are proud to unveil a dramatic new design of our RH Interiors Source Books, a continued collaboration with Fabien Baron, who designed our RH Modern Source Book last fall. The design supports our quest to unite and integrate the ideas of the most forward-thinking people in our industry,” said RH Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman. “The many designers, artisans, architects and manufacturers highlighted throughout the pages of our latest Source Books are challenging conventional wisdom, breaking down stylistic barriers and contributing to an evolving conversation of a new and inspiring way to live.”
With a revolutionary new design, the Fall 2016 Interiors Source Book features a bold new logo, new photography and layouts, and distinctive new collections defined by simple forms, rich textures, luxe materials and tailored silhouettes. Spotlighted collections include Richard Forwood’s sculptural oak Geometric Collection for bed, bath and living; Barlas Baylar’s first introductions for RH Interiors with the minimalist Keyes Dining Table and understated Saddle Dining Chair; Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner’s perfectly proportioned, low profile Maddox Sofa; Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning’s 1950s tuxedo-inspired Madison Collection; Jon Sarriugarte’s three-tier, elliptical Axis Chandelier and Geoffrey Hawkes’ sumptuous Graydon Shagreen Collection, crafted of Italian embossed leather with solid brass accents.
Statement pieces include the striking seven-foot Serenella Chandelier, sculptural Dalton Dining Table and Timothy Oulton’s handblown Teardrop Glass Chandelier; Luay Al-Rawi’s floating Grand Shutter Cabinet; and the dramatic, nine-foot Indian Fortress Bed – a meticulous replica of an 18th-century Indo-Portuguese carriage gate. Among the new textiles collections are Kevin O’Brien’s fluid shibori-inspired pillows in lush velvet; boldly graphic Kuba cloth with one-of-a-kind patterns that employ ancient African techniques; and celebrated designer Rusty Arena’s exquisite silk-screened pillows, which pay homage to the printed velvets of Venice.
The RH Lighting Source Book features an unparalleled collection of lighting for indoors and out by acclaimed designers, including Jonathan Browning and Robert Sonneman, whose iconic mid-century lighting designs have now been reimagined in solid brass exclusively for RH. RH Rugs celebrates understated motifs, rich texture and undyed natural yarns. New introductions include highly sought-after, one-of-a-kind, oversized vintage carpets ranging from 14’ x 20’ and beyond, as well as hand-embroidered vintage colorwash rugs – all designed, collected and curated by fourth-generation rug scion Ben Soleimani.
Additionally, RH Galleries across the U.S. and Canada will be completely redesigned to unveil the brand’s latest business concepts, RH Modern and RH Design Atelier – fully integrated workrooms where guests can imagine and design their entire home.
Visitors arriving to the galleries will be met with immersive exhibition spaces presenting RH Modern – one of the largest curated and fully-integrated assortments of modern furnishings, lighting and décor under one brand in the world. In select locations, RH Modern will command entire floors and integrate RH Contemporary Art, offering a curated and engaging collection of original artwork across all media.
