Trips to Famous Buildings – The Old Louis Of Boston Reinvented

Louis Boston

Hello again readers,
I just saw this story and truth be told I have always wanted to go into this Boston landmark, but never really had reason to when it was a super high end clothing store. The Old Louis of Boston vacated their prestigious Newbury Street address a couple of years ago moving to the hip Boston waterfront district (neighborhood of the new ICA) and the old Louis of Boston building designed by William Gibbons in 1863 was sold and now has a new tenant, a Restoration Hardware. Architectural Digest covered the interior renovation of the building which is profiled in their June issue. The detail inside the Gibbons building seems to really work with the Restoration Hardware merchandise giving the store a feeling of grandeur which I am sure helps sell those $500 + faucets and nicknacks. Below are some photos of the interior spaces. For more photos check out the ADigest article in the link below. I am wondering though who really needs a 2 story copy of the Eiffel Tower for their home?
