Summer may feel like it's coming to end, but Restoration Hardware has something that will have it feeling never-ending. With their new "RH Beach House" collection, Restoration Hardware has what you need for your private oasis. RH Beach House is a curated concept that is inspired by the world’s seascapes that reflects the brand’s distinctive perspective on coastal living.
The array of furniture, lighting, textiles, and décor is the result of the brand’s partnerships with a select group of known international designers. Enduring silhouettes, organic forms and natural materials layer with rich texture, earthen hues and statement pieces to create a consistent flow of indoors and outdoors. “Our vision was to reimagine the conventional beach aesthetic with a fresh point of view and elevated sense of taste and style. RH Beach House represents our quest to integrate the talent and ideas of the most forward-thinking people in our industry – inspiring a new and evolving way to live,” states Restoration Hardware Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman.
A few initial collaborations have resulted in the design of three modular sofa collections that are handmade in Italy. Navone by Paola Navone (Milan), a casual, streamlined design with relaxed details that reflect the celebrated designer’s eclectic ethos; Lugano by Jan te Lintelo (The Netherlands), with broad track arms and low-slung proportions that speak to comfortable, clean-lined modernism; and Costera by Jason Chauncey (Los Angeles), featuring sculptural tapered arms, a contoured profile and deep, loose cushions.
Other highlights from the collection include Kasar by Todd and Jason Song, a rustic collection of tables that reflect the spare forms and timeworn appeal of primitive Indonesian furniture; Anaya, distressed cabinets with open latticework – also from the Beijing-based brothers – that recall a British colonial influence; Trembesi by Timothy Oulton (London), who looks to the influence of traditional African carvings on early 20th century French design for a collection of striking handcrafted tables; and the Solano Dining Table, featuring a monolithic concrete slab that plays counterpoint to a reclaimed teak base. A collection of distinctive item seating references American and European modernist designs handwoven of rope, rattan and seagrass, as well as leather.
