Restoration Hardware – A Haven for Home Living Ideas
Restoration Hardware is almost certainly the most beautifully designed haven for home living ideas and inspiration both on and off the web. It’s well worth a browse round this website wherever you are in the world, particularly if you love home decor ideas and a calm, neutral environment. As a place to de-stress just by looking around this is perfect.
The first Restoration Hardware store was established in 1980 and there are now stores throughout the US. It acts as a curator of international design over the years, and offers timeless furniture and accessories. If you’re anything like me you’ll want to take as much as possible home with you, and if you return from a trip to the US and a visit to one of these stores into a cluttered, colourful environment you’ll be wishing yourself back here immediately as everything is calm, elegant and in very good taste.
This store is, as it looks, expensive but there are some reasonably priced accessories and very good gift ideas at Christmas, so if you pop over to NY to do your Christmas shopping come and look for some stocking fillers and luxury present suggestions here. Cashmere throws and faux fur scarves are beautiful quality and you most likely won’t find better quality for the price anywhere else.
Some of the home living pieces that really stand out to me are the vintage Turkish rug collection, the tripod table lamp, the trans-Atlantic Steamer Trunk Console and the Spitfire leather chair which I’m not sure would be that comfortable to sit in but is wonderful to look at.
As for now Restoration Hardware is full of home living ideas but won’t ship to you outside the US. However if you happen to pass one of their stores over here make sure you spend some time looking around, and don’t come home empty handed.
