Restoration Hardware's New University Village Home Is One Major Maison

| FROM THE PRINT EDITION |

No, the new four-story structure in University Village isn’t another parking garage. It’s 60,000 square feet of the new design gallery from Restoration Hardware (RH), one of only eight such stores in the U.S. The gallery space, which opened in November, averages five to six times the size of RH’s legacy stores, and features RH’s home furnishings displayed in artistic vignettes to simulate a gallery—a different experience from RH’s other retail stores. (A new retailer for the former RH store location in University Village will be announced this year.)

 

Each RH Gallery store reflects elements of the city in which it’s located. RH Seattle celebrates Washington’s fresh air and natural environment, with an expansive garden terrace and rooftop conservatory that features white crepe myrtle trees. Inside, the gallery boasts 13-foot ceilings and grand double floating staircases, and also houses the brand’s Design Atelier, a 4,000-square-foot workspace for shoppers to receive personalized interior design services. 

The RH Gallery blurs the line between residential and retail, so grab your Starbucks from across the street and head over. You may want to move in. University Village, Restoration Hardware Gallery, 4645 26th Ave. NE; 206.522.2775; restorationhardware.com
