Commanding three levels and 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, this one-of-a-kind experience features artistic installations of luxury home furnishings in a gallery setting, including full floors devoted to RH Interiors, Modern and Outdoor. RH Charlotte also includes an interactive Interior Design Firm & Atelier, providing an unprecedented level of professional design services.
“RH Charlotte represents the RH of the future,” RH Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Gary Friedman commented. “We don’t build retail stores. We create architecturally inspiring spaces that activate all of the senses and cannot be replicated online. It’s an immersive experience that blurs the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality, and we’re proud to introduce it to the Queen City.”
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 marked by a progression of grandly scaled boxwood topiaries and pleached elm trees.
At the top of a double floating staircase, visitors will arrive to the Rooftop Restaurant – a year-round skylit garden escape offering a timeless, ingredient-driven menu in a space layered with glimmering crystal chandeliers, elegant banquette seating defined by Japanese boxwood hedging, 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 with overhead canopies, trellised London plane trees and the sound of trickling fountains.
Situated just off the grand stair on level three, a striking climate-controlled Wine Bar houses carefully curated wine and champagne selections from around the world, as well as limited production offerings from some of the most renowned vintners in California’s Napa Valley.
On level two, visitors will discover RH Modern – the largest curated and 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, guests will pass through a 25-foot threshold of retractable glass and steel doors, and 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.
RH Charlotte, The Gallery at Phillips Place, is located at 6903 Phillips Place Court. The Gallery can be reached at 704.790.4970.
