Upscale home furnishings company RH has opened one of its largest locations at the former home of late philanthropist Christel DeHaan.
Spanning 151 acres and with over 60 rooms, RH Indianapolis, the Gallery at the DeHaan Estate features luxury home furnishings collections from RH Interiors – contemporary, modern and outdoor – along with rare art, antiques and artifacts.
One of the most accurate Palladian-style villas in the US, the design includes crescent-shaped wings, hand-forged iron doors, a curved foyer, Italian-travertine floors, and solid walnut doors handcrafted in Paris.
The venue has a restaurant and wine bar, reflecting the brand’s continued foray into hospitality, along with a terrace, a 35-acre private lake, lush formal gardens and a vast forest landscape.
Named The Dining Room, the restaurant is located in the grand ballroom with a wall of soaring windows and fluted pilasters, a 27ft groin-vaulted ceiling, banquettes of Italian wool velvet and a lighting installation by Los Angeles-based designer Alison Berger.
“The DeHaan Estate is one of the most magical properties in North America, and we are honored to open its gates to the public for the first time,” said RH chairman & CEO Gary Friedman.
“RH Indianapolis is a place to come and dream, be inspired by the architecture, get lost in the views, enjoy a meal in the grand ballroom or sip a glass of wine while strolling through the gardens.”
RH – previously known as Restoration Hardware – sells bespoke furniture, lighting, decor, textiles, bathroom wares and outdoor goods with galleries in the US, Canada, the UK, and Germany. It also plans to open a location in Australia at the end of 2025.
