"We believe when you step back and consider: one, we are building a brand with no peer; two, we are creating a customer experience that cannot be replicated online; and three, we have total control of our brand from concept to customer, you realize what we are building is extremely rare in today’s retail landscape and, we would argue, will also prove to be equally valuable,” CEO Gary Friedman said.
RH has galleries in the US and Canada with a selection of high-end indoor and outdoor furniture.
