Edina is home to yet another distinctive shopping destination. On Sept. 27, Restoration Hardware opened the doors on its new multi-level showroom located outside of Southdale Center. The nearly 60,000-square-foot store entices shoppers with a striking exterior that seeks to blur the lines between residential and retail, indoor and outdoors, home and hospitality.
Once inside, visitors will experience a central hall with soaring ceilings and a cast-stone Tuscan colonnade. Unobstructed views across the entire main level are bordered by passageways that lead to rooms featuring interior collections from internationally renowned designers.
More exhibition space for furniture, artwork and lighting is located on the second level along with client meeting spaces, a design library, private presentation rooms and stylized workspaces. A rooftop restaurant, wine and barista bar top off this luxury locale where diners can enjoy sharables, some classic entrees, pastries, craft coffee drinks and a curated selection of wine pours.
The experience is unique to Edina, further punctuating the city’s significance as a prominent place to shop.
