East Hampton - Restoration Hardware will open its first showroom in the Hamptons on May 21 at 69 Main Street in East Hampton - a cultural centerpiece to the string of storied villages that have long served as seaside escapes to New York's social set. Housed in a historic 1908 mercantile thoughtfully restored to its original spirit, The Gallery in East Hampton epitomizes the brand's move away from mall-based stores and innovative plans to roll out high-concept design showrooms in iconic locales coast to coast.

On a budding street front in the heart of this stunning coastal community, The Gallery in East Hampton is a striking illustration of New England Colonial architecture featuring Georgian arched windows topped with keystones, Doric pilasters, and a classical entablature complete with dentils. On the interior, exposed brick walls and original hand-cut beams of old-growth timber harvested over a century ago have been revealed to create an architectural canvas that instantly brings Restorations Hardware's artisan collections to life. Open stairs beckon one to explore the recaptured second floor loft.

Situated near famed Grey Gardens and the Pollock-Krasner House, Restoration Hardware's Gallery in East Hampton will offer a premiere, go-to design destination for visitors and locals, alike. Clientele can look forward to a one-of-a-kind shopping experience where they will discover fine Italian bedding, Belgian linens, and Turkish towels alongside deftly curated collections culled from the world travels of Chairman and Co-CEO, Gary Friedman, and his creative team.

In addition to a full range of products from Restoration Hardware's Outdoor & Garden collections, expect exacting reproductions of distinctive antiques, reimagined classics, and handcrafted, vintage-inspired pieces from a select group of internationally renowned artisans that are certain to stand the test of time and bring unparalleled comfort, sophistication, and intrigue to any interior.
