RH is proving its dominance in the hospitality space after announcing it would be opening yet another location of its unique concept store. RH Marin, The Gallery at the Village, in Corte Madera, California, is set to welcome visitors this month to its store-restaurant combo.
The incredible property will take over three levels and include almost 60,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. The gallery-like setting will feature art installations of luxury home furnishings spanning the brand's portfolio from modern to outdoor. There will also be an interactive interior design firm to provide decorating advice in private client presentation rooms complete with state-of-the-art technology.
Throughout the gallery space, you'll find the most extensive curated collection in the world of modern furnishings, textiles, lighting, and décor from one brand. Barrel-vaulted hallways lead to RH Interiors collections from world-renowned designers, antiques, and artifacts from Friedman's world travels.
Beyond the home goods, the space will also house a glass-encased rooftop restaurant. A double floating staircase leads guests up to the eatery where you can dine under crystal chandeliers and among 100-year-old heritage olive trees. The interior seamlessly flows onto a beautifully landscaped park with fountains and sculptures where you get views of both Mount Tamalpais and San Francisco Bay. Plus, a nearby climate-controlled wine installation houses limited productions from some of Napa Valley's most famous small winemakers for diners to enjoy.
"RH Marin is a deeply personal project given its proximity to our Center of Innovation and Headquarters in Corte Madera," said RH Chairman & CEO Gary Friedman in a statement. "It’s a reflection of our very best work to date—an architecturally inspiring and immersive experience that blurs the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality. Our entire team is proud and honored to bring this innovative concept to the town we call home.”
This is the latest RH outpost for the brand that is trying to revolutionize retail with entry into the hospitality space. New York City, Chicago, West Palm, and Nashville are just some of the major cities home to the RH concept stores.
