Restoration Hardware’s Spring Launch

Given the choice of flipping through a 5 lb Restoration Hardware catalog or going to the HUGE Gallery on Beverly Blvd. to check out EXPOSED: Restoration Hardware’s Spring 2012 collection I chose … the party, of course. The fabulous space was filled top to bottom with stylists, celebs, designers, and socialites who showed up in cocktail dresses to look at couches while The Pierces performed in the courtyard. A lot going on. Many folks were talking about Kim Kardashian’s “flour bombing” earlier at The London. She’s fine.

The collection is full of large pieces in muted colors, almost non-colors (think burlap and antiqued cotton the color of stones in a creek). Chairman and Co-CEO Gary Friedman and his fellow Co-CEO Carlos Galberini were on hand to sip bellinis with hosts Milla Jovovich, Elizabeth Banks, Abbie Cornish and Malin Akerman. Jovovich wandered the store dancing to the music most of the night, and when the party was over, it was hard to get folks out the door. The sign of a good bash.
