I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but I heard through a client that the Restoration Hardware Outlet had opened today. I didn’t see it anywhere else – and there isn’t even a sign outside of the store, so perhaps the “soft opening” was intentional. Either way, I’m excited that I was one of the lucky ones to check it out early. If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek as well. 🙂
Here is the address, since I know some of you will want to know.
There are a few things I consider when rating an outlet:
- How is the merchandise selection?
- Are the prices true “outlet” prices?
- What is the condition of the merchandise?
Chesterfield sofa, anyone?
So many beautiful dining room options!
You can see that they are only discounted 20% off the (steep) retail price of $3050, and with an additional 30% discount, the price would be $1708. Still seems kind of high to me.

I did spot some good deals in the lighting section though. Oh, if only they had been here when I was redoing my master bathroom for the One Room Challenge! Sorry for the photos of the boxes, but that’s all they had. Remember, you get an additional 30% off the price marked.
These would have been perfect in my master bathroom.
Barn light anyone?
I should have snapped up these nightstands – they were just the right size for my master bedroom, but I was in a hurry the first time I was in there (yes, I went twice in one day), and didn’t have time.
They even had a little section for Restoration Hardware Kids merchandise.
Pretty rugs, pretty pricey.
Some beautiful vanities at pretty reasonable prices.
But many of the vanities were missing their tops, so that would be an added expense.
Love this one. Too bad I’m not in the market.
Loads of mirrors – I love this one. What a cool statement piece, if you have a place for it, right? And yes, it sold (for about $500).
What is the Condition of the Merchandise?
Aside from a couple of scratches and dings here and there, and the fact that many of the vanities didn’t have tops, I’d say the quality was there. Much of it looked brand new. So, two thumbs up there.
Overall, I’d say this outlet offers some great deals, depending upon what you’re looking for, specifically. Some prices are better than others, but overall, a great place to shop for some nice furniture at discounted prices.
You can bet that I will be going back on a regular basis, and will be sure to provide you with frequent updates. 🙂
