The new RH location in Jacksonville, Fla. features barrel vaulted passageways that 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.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – RH has opened its newest store location in Jacksonville in The Gallery at St. Johns Town Center.
The new location features a glass-encased rooftop restaurant and park with a wine bar as well as gardens and terraces which display the company’s outdoor furniture.
“RH Jacksonville represents our ongoing quest to elevate and expand the brand with architecturally inspiring spaces that blur the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality, spaces that activate all of the senses and an experience that cannot be replicated online,” said Gary Friedman, chairman and CEO. “The Gallery at St. Johns Town Center reflects some of our best work to date and we’re proud to introduce this innovative and highly immersive experience.”
Conceptualized as a transparent, multi-level contemporary structure, 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 surrounded by towering Zahidi date palms.
The restaurant opens onto a beautifully landscaped park, influenced by the great classical gardens of Europe, and features a series of intimate RH outdoor lounge spaces defined by a layered composition of trellised evergreen trees, sculptural hedging, overhead shade canopies and the sound of trickling fountains.
On the second level, guests will discover RH Modern, a fully integrated assortment of modern furnishings, lighting, textiles and décor; as well as the RH Interior Design Firm & Atelier. This interactive studio features private client presentation rooms with advanced technology.
On the main level, visitors will pass through a 25-foot threshold of retractable glass-and-steel doors as they 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.
