RH Opens RH Dallas, The Gallery on Knox Street
RH (NYSE: RH) has announced the opening of RH Dallas, The Gallery on Knox Street. RH Dallas represents the latest physical expression of the brand and the first Design Gallery in Texas with an integrated hospitality experience, including a glass-encased Rooftop Restaurant and Wine Bar that open onto a beautifully landscaped park.
Commanding three levels and nearly 70,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, this one-of-a-kind retail concept presents artistic installations of luxury home furnishings in a gallery setting, with expansive spaces devoted to RH Interiors, RH Modern and RH Outdoor. RH Dallas also features an interactive Interior Design Firm & Atelier, providing an unprecedented level of professional design services.
“RH Dallas represents our ongoing quest to revolutionize physical retailing with architecturally inspiring spaces that blur the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality,” said Gary Friedman, chairman and CEO.
“The Gallery on Knox Street is a reflection of human design, a study of balance, symmetry, and perfect proportions,” added Friedman. “We subscribe to the principles of Vitruvius, that ‘beauty is produced by the pleasing appearance and good taste of the whole.’”
Conceptualized as a transparent, multi-level contemporary structure filled with fresh air and natural light, the Gallery features a charcoal grey Venetian plaster exterior with an expanse of glass-and-steel French doors that open onto lush garden courtyards and terraces. Marking the southern entrance is a 42-foot-wide by 15-foot-tall wall of cascading water inspired by the iconic fountain in New York City’s Paley Park.
Upon ascending a grand double floating staircase, guests will arrive to the Rooftop Restaurant – offering a timeless, ingredient-driven menu in a year-round, skylit garden escape beneath a dramatic atrium with retractable glass walls, sparkling chandeliers and heritage olive trees. Seamlessly extending from indoors to out, the restaurant opens onto a beautifully landscaped park. Influenced by the great classical gardens of Europe, this immersive destination features a series of intimate RH Outdoor lounge spaces defined by a layered composition of trellised London plane trees, sculptural evergreens and the sound of trickling fountains.
Situated just off the grand stair on level three, a striking Wine Bar presents carefully curated wine and champagne selections from around the world for visitors to enjoy in the Rooftop Park or while exploring the rest of the Gallery – including 40 wines by the glass as well as limited production offerings from some of Napa Valley’s most renowned small vintners.
On level two, guests will discover RH Modern – the largest fully integrated assortment of modern furnishings, lighting, textiles and décor under one brand in the world – as well as the RH Interior Design Firm & Atelier. This interactive studio features private client presentation rooms with state-of-the-art technology, and an RH Rugs showroom presenting an exclusive collection distinguished by its superlative artistry and exquisite materials.
On the main level, visitors will pass through a 25-foot threshold of retractable glass and steel doors as they continue into the central hall with its soaring 14-foot ceilings. Along the periphery, barrel-vaulted passageways lead to a classical arrangement of rooms featuring RH Interiors collections from internationally renowned designers, as well as one-of-a-kind antiques and artifacts from Friedman’s world travels.
