RH Nabs Williams-Sonoma exec

CORTE MADERA, CALIF. - Restoration Hardware has hired former Williams-Sonoma brand president Richard Harvey as chief merchandising officer for its new RH Kitchen and Tableware brand.
     Harvey spent 30 years at Williams-Sonoma, Inc. In his new position, he will develop a curated collection of kitchen furniture, appliances, lighting, cookware, tools and food for RH Kitchen and Tableware.
     Restoration Hardware launched the first RH Tableware 2013 Source Book this past spring. The RH Kitchen and Tableware brand will become part of the company's next iteration of its full-line design galleries - the format that is replacing the previous Restoration Hardware store prototype. RH Kitchen and Tableware will also be featured as its own catalog and with its own presence on rh.com in late 2014.
     "Kitchen and tableware represent a $25 billion market and a significant growth opportunity for our company," said Carlos Alberini, RH ceo. "We are honored that Richard, arguably the most experienced and talented leader in this industry, has joined our team."
