We believe that service starts inside the organization and embrace a concept called “People First.” At RH, do your best work in an inspiring space, enjoy a 50% product discount and receive opportunities for career advancement.

We are designers, not decorators. That distinction means that we look at a project in the context of the entire space, or the whole, rather than as parts or components. RH designers understand the art and science of lifestyle, environment and taste to create a functional, beautiful and personal space. We provide luxury design services for the reimagining of one room or an entire home, anywhere in the world. Our designers embody the RH lifestyle and a sense of personal style, polished appearance, refined taste and a discerning eye for luxury.

Design Assistants play an integral role in supporting key phases of a design project’s lifecycle in collaboration and partnership with the RH Design Atelier. They are innovators with an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for building and maintaining relationships.

We believe RH is one of the most innovative and fastest growing luxury brands in the home furnishings marketplace. We believe our brand stands alone and is redefining this highly fragmented and growing market. Our ability to innovate, curate and integrate products, categories, services, hospitality and businesses with a completely authentic and distinctive point of view, is a powerful platform for long-term growth. We evolved our brand to become RH, positioning our Company to curate a lifestyle beyond the four walls of the home. Our unique product development, go-to-market and supply chain capabilities, together with our significant scale, enable us to offer a compelling combination of design, quality and value that we believe is unparalleled in the marketplace.
