Restoration Hardware Takes Over Boston’s Museum Of Natural History
The luxury home furnishings company opens its new store at the historic cultural landmark.
Restoration Hardware celebrated the opening of its new store, The Gallery, early last month. The new flagship store of the luxury home furnishings company is at a 40,000 square foot historical landmark, the Historic Museum for Natural History. The building was originally designed by reknowned architect William G. Preston as the base of then Boston Society for Natural History. The interiors and exteriors of the structure were completely restored by James Gillam of Backen, Gillam & Kroeger Architects.
The brand’s furnishings are displayed in all four levels of the structure and in different “clubrooms” such as a billiards room, a library, a music room, and a cinema.
The Gallery also features the first RH Baby & Child Gallery on the newly restored subterranean level, in the East Coast part of the structure.
According to Gary Friedman, RH Chairman Emeritus, Creator and Curator, The Gallery marks a milestone for the company because of the architectural undertaking and its historical and cultural significance to the city of Boston.
