Discover Restoration Hardware: England’s location, a place where opulent furnishings, historic architecture and fine dining come together to redefine the concept of luxury.

Luxury is redefined regularly, however, there’s one name that has been consistently synonymous with what luxury truly means and that’s Restoration Hardware. As the sun sets on their monumental success across the United States, the brand has embarked on a transatlantic voyage, unveiling Restoration Hardware England in all its opulent glory. Picture this: a 17th-century, 73-acre estate nestled in the heart of the picturesque Cotswolds and at its heart, the splendid Gallery at Historic Aynho Park. This is not just a new Restoration Hardware location; it’s a lifestyle destination.

Restoration Hardware has an innate knack for selecting historically significant venues for its stores, and Restoration Hardware England is no exception. The Aynho Park, once known as Aynhoe Park, is a historic landmark with more than 400 years of history. It was primarily constructed in 1615 and remained during the ownership of the Cartwright family until the mid-20th century. Primarily showcasing Classical Revival architectural elements with hints of Continental Baroque style, this estate has undergone meticulous restoration and reimagining with a profound respect for its original vision.

As you step onto this opulent property, the entrance hall welcomes you with Doric colonnades and a splendid chimneypiece made of Mexican onyx. A hand-carved fireplace surround, commissioned by Sir Fairfax Cartwright, adds to the ambiance of the space. The Aynho Unicorn, a regal symbol of fantasy, rarity, purity and protection, welcomes guests.Concierges dedicated to dining and design are ready to assist with a wide array of services and experiences Restoration Hardware England has to offer.

Restoration Hardware’s contemporary furnishings contrast with the manor’s historic architecture, and the on-site design library boasts an extraordinary collection of vintage tomes. Among them is a meticulous reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, inspired by Vitruvius’ detailed account of human anatomy written over a millennium and a half ago. The library also boasts a collection of scarce books by prominent Renaissance architects such as Alberti, Scamozzi, and Palladio, who perpetuated the principles outlined by Vitruvius.

What’s an opulent journey without indulgence? Restoration Hardware England spoils guests with multiple different dining experiences that fit any mood or craving. The Orangery, bathed in natural light and adorned in Calacatta gold marble and Italian merino wool velvet, offers a live-fire dining experience. If you prefer to dine al fresco, The Loggia, a charming outdoor venue with French limestone fountains, is your answer. It’s the perfect spot for wood-fired pizzas and delectable charcuterie. For those with a lighter palate, The Juicery offers made-to-order fresh juices and grilled baguettes. For those craving an American bistro experience, the Conservatory is set to open its doors this fall, promising to be a sumptuous addition to the ensemble.
