Restoration Hardware opening March 7 in Back Bay

Restoration Hardware is opening its RH Historic Gallery on March 7 in the Back Bay space formerly occupied by Louis Boston.

The 40,000-square-foot landmark building has been completely restored and will feature the home furnishing chain’s largest full-line design gallery. The company has attempted to move away from its heritage as a niche business selling knobs and hooks and has positioned itself as a luxury home goods purveyor.

The return of Restoration Hardware will fill one of the most prominent vacancies in Boston. The Boylston Street ­location was formerly the home to the New England ­Museum of Natural History.
