On Wednesday March 6th Restoration Hardware (RH as it is now branded) hosted an opening party for its newest location in Boston’s Back Bay at the Historic Museum of Natural History, which most recently housed Louis Boston.
The event, which benefited the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, was hosted by Gary Friedman, Creator/Curator of RH Boston, Mayor Thomas M. Menino, and Joseph Abboud, among others. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston helps young people, build strong character and realize their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders. The Museum of Fine Arts houses and preserves preeminent collections and aspires to serve a wide variety of people though direct encounters with works of art.
Guests mingled and admired RH’s latest collection of home furnishings, sipped Bellini’s by Ciprani NYC, drank artisanal Boston beer, and enjoyed gourmet bites by Boston’s own James Beard award winning Chef Ken Oringer, who was also on hand to say hello to the crowds. This blogger also spotted actor Jeremy Renner who is in town to begin filming a new movie.
The completely renovated space contains a 19th century counterweight elevator, a 24 foot illuminated Eiffel Tower replica, an outdoor sculpture garden, and will also feature a bar and restaurant on the third floor, serving drinks and small bites.
RH Boston opens to the public on March 7th.
