Inspired by the World’s Epic Alpine Destinations, New Concept Debuts with Dedicated Source Book Showcasing Distinctive New Collections by Acclaimed Global Designers
RH announced today the unveiling of RH Ski House, a curated concept inspired by the world’s epic alpine destinations that presents over 60 new collections reflecting the brand’s distinctive point of view on mountain living. Aspen to Sun Valley, Tahoe to Taos, Courchevel to Cortina, RH Ski House is defined by a rustic yet refined aesthetic with modern and contemporary influences, and debuts with a dedicated print and digital Source Book, which can be viewed at RHSkiHouse.com.
RH Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman commented, “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. 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.”
A collection of furniture, lighting, textiles and décor is the result of the brand’s creative partnerships with a select group of internationally renowned designers. Evoking dramatic winter snowscapes, sculptural shapes and luxe natural materials layer with rich organic texture, warm earthen hues and stunning statement pieces.
The Yeti collection by Timothy Oulton (London) introduces bold silhouettes wrapped in sumptuous, long-haired New Zealand sheepskin for ultimate, sink-in comfort, showcased in oversized sofas and sectionals, as well as the Yeti Sheepskin Armchair, Yeti Sheepskin Bed, Adele Sheepskin Dining Chair and Oviedo Sheepskin Chaise.
Spanning living, dining and bedroom, The Reclaimed Rustic European Oak collection byTheo Eichholtz (Amsterdam) celebrates the organic beauty of solid oak timbers from decades-old buildings with contemporary lines that allow the wood’s timeworn character to take center stage. The Dutch designer also debuts Rigby Reclaimed Rustic Oak – coffee, console and side tables where unfinished, rough-sawn slabs appear to float on streamlined metal bases.
Defined by a spare silhouette and an intriguing juxtaposition of crisp angles and rounded corners, Davos by Nicholas and Harrison Condos (Sydney, Austrailia) is hewn from thick planks of solid oak with rich color that accentuates the natural grain. Informed by 1980s postmodern minimalism, Luay Al-Rawi’s (Amsterdam) Ridgeline collection features monolithic concrete slabs that play cool counterpoint to the warmth of reclaimed wood.
A first-time collaboration with artisan Alan Price (North Carolina) – whose proprietary technique yields hand-burnished leathers with a rich, aged patina – reimagines classic sofa and chair silhouettes. Berne, a track-arm frame upholstered in a mix of supple and distressed Italian leathers, traced with plush New Zealand shearling; Rourke, a 1940s French-influenced design distinguished by elegant channeling; and the Ambrose Chair, with a distinctive T-arm and nailhead trim.
Lighting creates a commanding presence with Harlow Calcite by Timothy Oulton, where translucent faceted slabs showcase the mineral’s beauty in dramatic chandeliers and sconces; Natural Antler Chandeliers, an homage to the majestic wildlife of the American West using naturally shed horns; and Riveted Mesh Chandeliers and Floor Lamp by blacksmith Jefferson Mack (San Francisco), forged on a grand scale with fire and anvil, hammer and steel.
