RH selects Fashion Island for Orange County’s only design gallery
80,000-Square-Foot, Four-Level Experience to Present One of the Largest Collections of Luxury Home Furnishings in the World with a Dramatic Rooftop Restaurant & Park, Wine Bar, In-House Interior Design Firm, and Full Floors of RH Interiors, Modern and Outdoor.
November 3, 2021 – RH, the leading purveyor of luxury home furnishings, is slated to open RH Newport Beach, The Gallery at Fashion Island, in spring 2024. Topping a list of celebrated retailers slated to join Orange County’s premier coastal lifestyle destination, RH Newport Beach will represent the latest physical expression of the brand and the only Design Gallery in the region with an integrated hospitality experience, including a glass-encased Rooftop Restaurant and Wine Bar that open onto a beautifully landscaped park framing stunning views of Catalina Island and the Pacific Ocean.
“RH Newport Beach reflects our vision to create architecturally inspiring and immersive spaces that blur the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality,” said RH Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Gary Friedman. “We are proud and honored to bring this innovative design gallery to Fashion Island in Newport Beach.”
Commanding four levels and nearly 80,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, this one-of-a-kind retail concept will present artistic installations showcasing one of the largest fully integrated assortments of luxury home furnishings, lighting, textiles and décor in the world – with entire floors devoted to RH Interiors, Modern and Outdoor. RH Newport Beach, complete with 100-year-old heritage olive trees and open-air dining, will also include an in-house Interior Design Firm & Atelier, providing an unprecedented level of professional design services.
“For more than 50 years, Fashion Island has offered a thoughtfully curated collection of timeless luxury and emerging brands, world-class designers, stylish boutiques and exceptional dining opportunities for our customers and community,” said Tanya Thomas, Vice President and General Manager of Fashion Island. “RH perfectly captures the inspiring lifestyle experience that draws discerning guests from Newport Beach and beyond to Fashion Island.”
Following in the steps of RH’s acclaimed culinary experiences in Chicago, named one of Zagat’s “10 Sexiest Restaurants,” and New York, hailed by Forbes as “the perfect place to dine,” RH Newport Beach will be an unparalleled dining destination.
“Few communities in the country are fortunate enough to be chosen for an RH Design Gallery, and this is a major win,” said Newport Beach Mayor Brad Avery. “The RH Gallery experience – with a rooftop restaurant and stunning ocean views – further adds to the vibrancy of Fashion Island, Newport Beach and all of Orange County.”
With an expanse of glass-and-steel French doors that open onto lush garden courtyards and terraces, the Gallery will be located on the ocean-facing side of Fashion Island. To accommodate the new building, some existing merchants will be relocated within the center. RH’s current location in Fashion Island remains open to guests.
Fashion Island continues to be Orange County’s one-stop coastal destination for style exploration. The new RH Gallery will join an array of other noteworthy brands, some of which are part of the growing collection of celebrated retailers and dining experiences exclusive to Fashion Island in Orange County.
