I thought I would share a few pictures that I took at our visit to Restoration Hardware on Tuesday. I only got a few shots since I wasn't sure if picture taking was allowed, but I wanted to share the lusciousness! Excuse the quality, I was being sneaky!
Another furniture store that I absolutely love is Arhaus and there is one right next door to Restoration Hardware!! How lucky can I be! I was unable to get pictures in there though, there were a few more people in that store! I was in heaven because I don't get up here much to check out what's new. You know that I don't shop in traditional furniture stores, but these two are my exceptions, I love everything about these great and beautiful stores!
If you are not familiar with Restoration Hardware, it used to be a catalog that you could order reproductions of old style fixtures if you were renovating an old house. You could order anything from hinges, iron floor registers, door knobs, you name it, they had it. But they have gotten away from that and it has evolved over the years to what it is today, simple, beautiful, large scale furniture.
Less is more at Restoration Hardware, but every piece in that store makes a statement. I love it because it's like no other furniture store. The furniture is large, too large for my home, and it's a little more on the masculine side with leather, wood and iron. But along with that they have the most beautiful bedding and window treatments, the colors are muted and very warm, and made from gorgeous linen which softens the look. And even though the furniture at Restoration Hardware is a bit more masculine, if you paired anything in that store with some of the softer things you can buy at Arhaus...........it would be my dream home!!
Both Restoration Hardware and Arhaus are pretty pricey, but if I ever needed a new couch I think I would check these two stores out first, they have some gorgeous ones!. Since I don't shop in traditional furniture stores, I can't tell you how the prices compare, but I would be willing to spend the higher price for the furniture in these stores.
The colors that are dominate in their paint and furniture line are creams, grays, taupes and dusty purple. Everything coordinates so well together, using natural elements in their decor, just the way I like it! It is such a warm and inviting combination.This store is so beautiful and I can't wait to go back.
