Toronto, October 20, 2017 – The worlds of design, fashion, art, philanthropy, and business came together last night in celebration of the opening of RH Toronto’s flagship store. Celebrity appearances included host committee member and supermodel Coco Rocha and Brooklyn’s DJ Chris Malinchak.
Guests enjoyed gourmet bites by RH Café, sipped on fresh peach bellinis by Cipriani NYC and curated wines by Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley and Blackbird Vineyards, and enjoyed a caviar bar paired with Kettle One vodka martinis. The event had a philanthropic angle as it benefitted the beloved local charity Breakfast of Champions in support of SickKids.
If you get the chance, RH Toronto is some to really experience. Located at Yorkdale Shopping Centre, the innovative new retail experience looks like something you would find in Las Vegas. It’s a mix of residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality. The place is pure decadence.
Guests can dine in a dramatic skylit courtyard café with venetian plaster walls, heritage olive trees and trickling fountains, or enjoy a handcrafted coffee or glass of wine from the pantry and espresso bar while they experience artistic installations of furnishings and décor from RH Interiors and RH Modern. Visitors will explore the expansive atrium and Rooftop Park showcasing RH Outdoor collections with iconic views of the Toronto skyline, and interact with RH’s team of professional interior designers, who can help reimagine a space and conceptualize a fresh and inspiring way to live.
RH Toronto marks RH Chairman & CEO Gary Friedman’s ongoing collaboration with James Gillam of Backen, Gillam & Kroeger, a firm recognized as one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 architect and design firms in the world.
