Surprising Retail Encounter
When I was in North Scottsdale a few weeks ago meeting a friend at the Scottsdale Quarter shopping center, I happened upon this store that I thought at first was some type of grand restaurant. It had such an elegant exterior with a large gate across the entrance and a valet-like attendant that I thought for sure this was an expensive club of some sort. It turns out to be a Restoration Hardware store.
There used to be a Restoration Hardware store at Biltmore Fashion Park several years ago and it looked nothing like this place. It was small and featured mostly small items and all kinds of hardware you might use to restore some old furniture. Boy has this place changed.
Now the store carries everything you might need to decorate your home from furniture to lighting to decorator items like sculptures and pictures.
This store is three stories of demonstration rooms all gorgeously decorated. It looks like Restoration Hardware has changed their business focus and is now into some serious decorating.
The third floor of this store offered lots of garden and patio furniture as well as a great view. Tomorrow I'll show the views from up there.
