About Our Tour Participants: 

b8ta is a software-powered retailer designed to make physical retail accessible for all. We help people discover, try, and learn about new tech products in real life while empowering makers with a simple retail-as-a-service model that puts them in control.

Rachel’s Ginger Beer is a locally-crafted fresh ginger soda. we carefully produce our original and 8 flavors of ginger beer in south park, and distribute rgb ourselves around seattle and portland. rachel’s ginger beer is unpreserved and free of fillers, allowing the bright ginger and fruits to shine, whether enjoyed straight, or in a cocktail.



The 60,000-square-foot, four-level design gallery features dramatic interior installations.  Showcasing collections from RH Interiors, RH Modern and RH Outdoor, an interactive design atelier, lush garden courtyard and terrace, and rooftop park & conservatory.

“Our vision for RH Seattle is to re-imagine the retail experience by blurring the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, physical and digital, creating a space that is more home than store,” says RH Chairman & CEO, Gary Friedman. “We believe the most pleasing design is a reflection of human design, thus RH Seattle is a study of balance, symmetry and the golden mean.”
