The company’s efforts to redesign its supply chain network, rationalize product offerings and the Waterworks acquisition are expected to boost growth. Initiatives like RH Modern, RH Teen, RH Hospitality, the redesign of RH Interiors Source Book and the rollout of Design Ateliers across the company’s retail galleries are expected to drive growth in 2017 and beyond.
