RH opens its doors in the UK

RH at Aynho Park is not just a shopping destination, but a taste-maker for modern design. The brands first venture outside of the US has been long-awaited amongst the Interior Design world in the UK and its debut has not disappointed.


The first-of-its-kind hospitality destination is a place to gather friends and family, to enjoy life, and above all seek inspiration. All within the beautiful surroundings of the Cotswolds, Aynho Park is steeped in architectural history and is now a comfortable home to RH’s luxurious furniture, lighting and accessories.

RH boasts a generous members programme alongside in-house interior design service. For those who want the full design service and to re-create a RH style this is the perfect set up. However, at Lucy Winterwood, we pride ourselves on creating a thoughtful and authentic representation of our clients by sourcing furniture from various, trusted suppliers. And we would be more than happy to help you integrate RH pieces alongside your own treasured possessions to create your own signature style.

RH’s furniture is described as ‘supersized, minimal and easy-living’ and whilst you cannot see every piece from their vast collection. Visiting Aynho Park will give you a fabulous introduction to the quality and craftsmanship of the brand. We’ve picked some of our top finds for you.


We were pleasantly surprised with the array of natural finishes to offer, particularly in the lighting. Stone pieces in beautiful Alabaster, Arebescato Marble and Travertine are timeless, and a fine example of buying once and buying well.

What’s lovely about RH as a destination is that it gives you the opportunity to test out the products, often something our clients find it hard to take the time to do. But with six different food and drink destinations there’s every excuse to take a trip, and test out that giant sofa you’ve been ogling over.


Sometimes sculptural upholstered pieces are more about looks than ergonomic design. But RH has your comfort in mind any everything is as cosy as it looks. And we can also personally endorse the Pizza and Vino at The Loggia open fire restaurant!

We will end this blog admiring the grand architecture of the building and how the juxtaposition of the old and new works so well together. The space feels contemporary but not cold and is a fine example of how we can blend design styles to suit a modern way of living.


The perfect tiny details of the architecture give small glimpses of character and meaning to the space. Our personal favourite, the ceiling decoration, from small bobbin like cornicing to delicate relief creating patterns. A feast for our eyes from top to bottom!
