Style meets sustainability at Arhaus, a new addition to the design offerings on El Paseo in Palm Desert. The showroom features furnishings, décor, and accessories by artisans from the desert and around the world. Here, Arhaus publicist Abby Keefe shares the company’s approach to design and reveals some treasures in the showroom.


What are the guiding design principles at Arhaus?

Arhaus was founded in 1986 with the mission to create premium home furnishings that are sustainably sourced, lovingly made, and built to last. After 35 years, our brand remains firmly rooted in these core principles.

How do you curate and select pieces for Arhaus?

Arhaus partners with artisans around the globe who use time-honored techniques to create unique, handcrafted pieces. From rug weavers in India to families of master woodworkers in Italy and Mexico, our artisan partnerships span continents and generations.

Why did Arhaus open a showroom in the Coachella Valley?

The Palm Desert showroom is one of 10 Arhaus locations in California and the first in the Coachella Valley. The Gardens on El Paseo, a premier shopping mall, was a natural fit for Arhaus. Arhaus blends seamlessly into the center’s vibrant lifestyle offerings.

What kind of experience and goods can clients expect to see at Arhaus?

From bedroom to living to dining, clients will find a variety of furniture and décor for any space. In addition, they can expect top-tier customer service, including complimentary interior design services; our designers provide guidance in store and online.

How do you bring a client’s design vision to life?

Our design team takes time to learn about you, your style, and what you want to achieve in your home. An Arhaus Interior Designer will walk you through the process, from customizing furniture to selecting pieces to complement your space. Our designers use the Arhaus Room Planner tool to create realistic 3-D renderings for clients to see how the pieces will look and feel in their space.

The Arhaus website says, “your home should be a stunning representation of your unique style.” How does this philosophy guide the overall experience?

We at Arhaus recognize that curating your home is a personal, evolving journey. We offer a wide range of pieces that span style preferences and design aesthetics, all with the highest quality and craftsmanship. We also offer customization services to ensure that your Arhaus pieces are perfectly suited to your preferences.
