The Yeti sofa by Timothy Oulton is wrapped in long-haired New Zealand sheepskin
One step inside its glittering galleries and it’s clear RH is all about the experience. The mammoth showrooms have an eye for every detail of luxury living, showcasing everything from sectionals to sconces in an inspired setting complete with design services, cocktails and canapes. It comes as no surprise, then, that after the brand launched RH Beach House, it turned its eye toward the slopes with the debut of RH Ski House.
The Yeti armchair sits alongside the Natural Antler collection’s floor lamp; all at RH Boston, The Gallery at the Historic Museum of Natural History.
The new concept offers more than 60 collections of decor and furniture ($30 to $11,250) that take cues from skiing hot spots like Aspen; Tahoe; Sun Valley, Idaho; Taos, N.M.; and Courchevel, France. As with its other collections, RH tapped an internationally renowned team of designers to concept the lines. Timothy Oulton nods to 1970s postmodernism with the Yeti collection—a plush, shearling range upholstered in New Zealand sheepskins. North Carolina artisan Alan Price’s Berne and Rourke collections are rich with handburnished and distressed Italian leathers. And, throughout, reclaimed timbers and rough-hewn slabs marry with handforged metals. The mood is utterly hygge—all you need to do is light the fire.
“Whether you ski or just enjoy being in the mountains or snow, RH Ski House was designed to make anyone feel warm, comfortable and relaxed,” says Gary Friedman, RH chairman and CEO. “It’s a collection that is the result of curating the best people, products, ideas and inspiration we’ve come across, then carefully integrating each, where the whole becomes more valuable than the parts.”
