CONTEMPORARY HOME FURNISHINGS POWERHOUSE RH LAUNCHES RH ONE, THE BRAND’S PREMIER PRIVATE JET A LESSON IN PURISM AND LUXURY
BY ARCHANA AITHAL ROSE
With millions of devoted fans around the globe, RH (known as Restoration Hardware prior to 2013) has become one of the most notable names in the interior design biz, transforming from a small home furnishings store into a full-scale lifestyle concept, complete with design services, restaurants, wine bars, and coffee shops, spanning 60,000+ square feet in prominent spaces like RH New York, the Gallery in the Historic Meatpacking District. But the flourishing super brand isn’t stopping there; CEO and Chairman Gary Friedman recently translated the brand’s interior spirit into a 12-passenger Gulfstream G650, a stunning private charter that will launch into the skies in the first quarter of 2022. The cabin is dressed entirely in brushed European pale white oak while 12 lounge chairs are draped in contrasting charcoal linen. The plane’s exterior bears the RH stamp, too, fashioned in a metallic gray and champagne hue. Its maiden voyage will be an RH design meeting in the skies.
