Remember when Ralph Lauren stood for prepped out flower patterns, tartan and rugby?
This past fall I visited the Ralph Lauren showroom down in High Point, NC for the first time and was totally surprised and blown away by what I saw there. While most furniture companies and designers follow trends and break out only a little bit, the Ralph Lauren folks live in their own world and march to their own drummer. So I had to go visit their showrooms in NYC this past week to get closer to the fire. What I saw was another face of Ralph: edgier, luxe and playing with the shadows.
