A new 40,000 square-foot store will become the centerpiece of a 16-acre expansion at Easton Town Center in Columbus.
Restoration Hardware, a company selling furniture, lighting, rugs, bath-ware and decor, will open a new store in Easton known as RH Columbus: The Gallery at Easton Town Center, a higher-end version of the retailer, according to Chain Store Age. The gallery, which will be a freestanding building, will also include a rooftop park and cafe and will be the focal point of Easton's new district.

When its new gallery is completed, Restoration Hardware plans to leave its existing Easton storefront located near the center of the main development. Construction has already begun on the $500-million addition to Easton, portions of which are expected to open late this year.
The new sector of Easton will be near Nordstrom's and Macy's stores and will include apartments and a public gathering space, The Columbus Dispatch reports. The new area will also have an Aloft boutique and an entertainment destination offering bowling and pinball called Pins Mechanical Company.
Restoration Hardware has an outlet location in Centerville on Ohio 48.
