Restoration Hardware’s Chairman and CEO, Gary Friedman, has always emphasized the importance of creative customer experiences. So, when the luxury brand opened their four-story gallery in Nashville, Tennessee last Thursday, only the best of the best headed down south for the party. VIPs included the CEO himself, Naomi Watts, Portia de Rossi, singer Jake Owen, and more who all toasted to the unveiling of the gallery (complete with an inner courtyard oasis, barista bar, and café).
Guests sipped on Cipriani NYC bellinis, nibbled on RH Café hors-d’oeuvres, and wandered through the gallery’s various installations: Restoration Hardware’s various collections, RH Interiors, RH Modern, RH Baby & Child, RH Teen, and RH Outdoor are all artfully arranged throughout the space. The store will also offer RH Design Atelier, which offers bespoke interior design services in a studio-like environment.
The unveiling soirée for the design hotspot benefitted the Frist Art Museum, a gallery in Nashville with rotating exhibits and various education programs. So, while the event’s rooftop frosé bar may sadly not be a permanent addition to the gallery, at least it toasted a good cause.
