My One Year Anniversary with RH

This month marks my year anniversary with RH – Richmond! I can’t believe a year has gone by. Working with RH has been so fulfilling and challenging at the same time. We are a small group, but working closely with one another has made me get to know how others work best, as well as getting to know myself better in a fast-paced retail setting.

Just last week we completed a gallery wide renovation, incorporating several new RH Modern pieces in the mix of our tried and true main line pieces. Here are a few of the “glamorously-minimal” (as I like to call them) items I’m loving right now:

Boule de Cristal Chandelier & Sconces


Crafted of solid brass and crystal, lighting designer Jonathan Browning’s sculptural fixture is a testament to his passion for luxe materials and superior handcraftsmanship. Evoking the minimalist spirit of 1960s design, each faceted sphere is ground and polished by hand to reflect and refract the light.

The round chandelier comes in three sizes; 48″, 60″ and 72″

The sconce takes a 20W max bulb and is dimmer switch compatible


Marble Plinth Coffee Table


  • Handcrafted from slabs of marble on a sturdy wooden frame
  • Thick, overhanging top is set on a low, inset base to create a floating effect
  • Hidden casters allow ease of placement. Casters are not removable and do not lock.
  • Variations in the natural veining make each piece of marble, and each table, unique
  • Spot clean tabletop with a soft towel and mild soap; products with abrasives, lemon, vinegar or acids can damage the stone

The marble plinth coffee table is available in three different sizes:

  • 55″ Table: 55″W x 32″D x 14½”H
  • 67″ Table: 67″W x 43″D x 14½”H
  • 80″ Table: 80″W x 50″D x 14½”H

Metal Starburst Sculpture 


Crafted by hand from dozens of metal rods, its flat tips refract the form with light. A definite statement piece on any coffee table!

Emery Track Armless Side Chair


A tubular steel base gives this postmodern side chair a machine-age reference. Its slender legs support a cushioned, tailored seat for a crisp and geometric silhouette. The seat and back handcrafted with a solid wood frame and foam cushions. The legs are crafted in tubular metal.

The Emery dining chair collection also features a shelter arm, barrel back, and slope arm option. The base of the chair also comes in three different finishes; polished stainless steel, bronze, and burnished brass.

Crosby Side Table


This gilded glass serves as the elegant tabletop of this RH Modern églomisé table. Showcasing old-world craftsmanship in a postmodern design, its mirror-like surface is backed with precious metal, all done by hand. A perfect “cozy-up” table to rest an appetizer or your favorite woodsy cocktail on for Fall!

Aero Marble Round Dining Table


  • Tabletop crafted of honed Carrara marble with sealed, finished bullnose edges
  • Set on a cast metal base with an antiqued brass or cast iron finish
  • Variations in the natural veining make each piece of marble, and each table, unique
  • Seats up to 6

– This table is also available in a Cast Iron base and in an oval style, which always adds interest to any dining area.

Organic Sculpted Troughs


Inspired by natural forms, smoothed by water and wind, artist Tina Frey sculpts vessels from clay in her San Francisco studio. These hand-cast resin pieces flawlessly capture their simple, organic beauty.

Great size and shape for displaying any festive dining table arrangement!

Italia Taper Arm Fabric Sofa


Italian modernist design of the 1950s and ’60s informs the simplified lines of our taper-arm collection. Elegant in its minimalism, it’s made welcoming with enveloping arms.

  • Tapered profile with deeply cushioned, angled arms
  • Choose standard fill (polyfiber wrapped around foam core) or down-feather fill (feather and down wrapped around a foam core)
  • Slender legs crafted of steel
  • Professional upholstery cleaning recommended
  • Handcrafted in the USA
  • Select custom leg finish, and over 50 different fabrics, including funky Mohair velvet!!
  • Also available in leather

Graydon Shagreen Triple Door Sideboard


At RH, the Graydon Shagreen Collection is already a hot commodity, with ETA’s as long as February! What makes this piece so great?

  • Crafted of shagreen embossed leather with the texture and pattern of stingray hide
  • Hardwood frame constructed with mortise-and-tenon joinery
  • Soft-close doors equipped with high-quality hinges
  • Sideboard interiors are crafted of fine hardwood veneers with a painted finish to complement exterior color
  • 2 adjustable shelves (1 per section)
  • Accented with slender, solid brass door pulls and solid brass capped feet
  • Use placemats or trivets under hot items and coasters under beverages to prevent marks and stains

Ria Rug


Doesn’t this remind you of marshmallows or popcorn?! So cozy; perfect for a family media room or kids’ playroom.

Masterfully hand looped from long, luxuriant yarns, this rug’s dramatic surface evokes river-smoothed stones and feels wonderfully plush underfoot. Silken threads enhance the naturally shaded wool, which is spun into differing thicknesses for an appealing variety in texture. Hand-stitched edges complement the artful presentation of this durable weave. 40% wool, 30% viscose, 30% cotton.
