Restoration Hardware wants to "increase the visibility of international artists," so they're opening their own gallery. Dubbed RH Contemporary Art, it will bow this fall on West 16th Street, between Ninth and Tenth Avenues.

The home goods company launched the art initiative earlier this year with a pretty big acquisition: they bought the first edition of Rain Room by rAndom International. The piece was on loan at the Museum of Modern Art from mid-May to late July, incurring epic lines.
