RH Boston Opening

Restoration Hardware, re-named RH, celebrated the opening of its new Back Bay store at 234 Berkeley St., in the former New England Museum of Natural History building and Louis Boston shop, on Wednesday, March 6th. The party, benefiting the Museum of Fine Arts and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, sadly became overcrowded so quickly that hundreds of guests were either left waiting outside in the freezing rain or, once inside, crammed too tightly together. However, the dramatic makeover of the historic 150 year-old building will be well worth a return visit, at least to see the original, 70-foot high vaulted ceiling and the newly installed 24-foot Eiffel Tower replica.
