Commanding four levels and over 70,000 total interior and exterior
square feet, this innovative retail concept features artistic
installations of home furnishings in a gallery setting, including
expansive spaces dedicated to RH Interiors, RH Modern, RH Outdoor, RH
Baby & Child, and RH TEEN. The gallery also includes an interactive
Design Atelier, offering clients professional interior design services.
RH Chairman & CEO Gary Friedman commented, “RH Nashville reflects our
ongoing quest to revolutionize physical retailing by seamlessly
integrating food, wine, art and design. We don’t build retail stores. We
build inspiring spaces that blur the lines between residential and
retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality – spaces that
activate all of the senses, and cannot be replicated online.”
“We are proud to bring this first-of-its-kind concept to Nashville – one
of the most creative cities in the world,” Mr. Friedman concluded.
Sodikoff is also the founder, CEO and creative director of Hogsalt
Hospitality, a rapidly growing Chicago-based restaurant group spanning
14 concepts and 15 locations. Hogsalt’s portfolio includes nationally
acclaimed establishments Au Cheval, Bavette’s, Gilt Bar, and Doughnut
Vault in Chicago, as well as his first restaurant in New York – 4
Charles Prime Rib, an intimate supper club in the West Village. Sodikoff
has been named one of Chicago Magazine’s “100 Most Powerful
People in Chicago” and one of Crain’s “40 Under 40.” He has also
been recognized by Bon Appétit, Food & Wine and the Food
Network, among others.
“I’ve been inspired by the great food cities of the South for the last
decade. Nashville has been at the top of my list, and I couldn’t be more
excited to participate in the thriving art, music and food culture with
our new RH gallery,” Sodikoff said.
RH Nashville marks Friedman’s ongoing collaboration with design
architect James Gillam of Backen, Gillam & Kroeger, a firm recognized as
one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 architect and design firms
in the world.
Conceptualized as a contemporary, yet classically-inspired structure
that is a reflection of human design, RH Nashville features a charcoal
grey Venetian plaster exterior with an expanse of glass-and-steel French
doors that open onto a streetscape of white crepe myrtle trees and
oversized Japanese boxwood globes set within weathered steel planters.
Looking overhead, guests will admire Juliet balconies, a terrace lush
with white wisteria and the Conservatory & Rooftop Park.
Once inside the gallery, visitors will first discover the Wine Vault, a
striking lounge space with elegant banquette seating and iridescent
gold, groin-vaulted ceilings where they can savor a glass of rosé or
cabernet. In the adjoining RH Café, Sodikoff’s seasonal,
ingredient-driven menu can be enjoyed sitting beneath a soaring glass
atrium defined by its heritage olive trees, massive crystal and iron
chandelier and 12-foot central fountain.
A second Wine Vault, as well as the Barista Bar – with its craft
espresso and house-made pastries – adjoin the far side of the café.
Dramatic arched passageways lead to a classical arrangement of rooms
with artistic lifestyle installations featuring RH Interiors collections
from internationally renowned designers.
Continuing their journey to the upper floors, visitors will ascend one
of two glass-enclosed staircases, each with a spectacular installation
of crystal Helix chandeliers hanging 65 feet overhead. Cascading
compositions of gilded antique mirrors create an endless reflection and
further illuminate the way.
Level two features the RH Design Atelier – a 6,500-square-foot studio
anchored by four, 10-foot custom tables offering a fully integrated
workspace for clients, designers and architects to reimagine one room or
an entire home, inside and out. Here, guests can work with the highly

handwoven rugs, and other specialized galleries for window treatments,
bed and bath linens, and bath hardware.
On the third level, visitors will find a 9,500-square-foot exhibition
space presenting RH Modern, one of the largest curated and
fully-integrated assortments of modern furnishings, lighting, textiles
and décor under one brand in the world. Developed in collaboration with
a select group of acclaimed global designers, RH Modern’s design
vernacular represents a fresh and innovative point of view, defined by a
minimalist aesthetic, the finest materials and maximum comfort.

the globe – will also be showcased. A first-of-its-kind art curation and
publishing company founded by award-winning actress and artist Portia de
Rossi,GENERAL PUBLIC’s revolutionary Synograph™ technology
produces 3-D prints capturing texture and brushwork in such detail that

galleries, offering tasteful furnishings for children and young adults
that are distinctive in their own right, but blend seamlessly with the
rest of the home.
