Former Williams-Sonoma exec to reinvent kitchens and tableware at RH

CORTE MADERA, Calif. — Restoration Hardware Holdings has appointed former Williams-Sonoma brand president Richard Harvey as the company's CMO for RH Kitchen and Tableware.

Harvey spent 30 years at Williams-Sonoma, Inc., most recently as president of the Williams-Sonoma brand. In his new role, Harvey will develop a curated collection of kitchen furniture, appliances, lighting, cookware, tools and food.

The company plans to showcase RH Kitchen and Tableware in its next generation full line design galleries as well as online and in its own catalog. RH Kitchen and Tableware is expected to launch late 2014.

“Kitchen and Tableware represent a $25 billion market and a significant growth opportunity for our company. We are honored that Richard, arguably the most experienced and talented leader in this industry, has joined our team,” said CEO Carlos Alberini.

“I am thrilled to once again work with Richard to re-imagine and reinvent this important part of the home. We believe the kitchen represents a tremendous opportunity for us to express our creativity and design point of view,” added chairman emeritus, creator and curator Gary Friedman.

“I am delighted to join Gary, Carlos and this innovative organization and am excited to have the opportunity to conceptualize a new and original expression of this business,” said Harvey.
