R4 Galleria UNIQUE FINDS FROM A MOTHER-DAUGHTER DUO.
“My whole life, I would look at magazines of home décor stores and wonder, why can’t I achieve that look?” co-owner of R4 Galleria Rita Meeks says. “I realized, it’s because I was missing a statement piece — something that draws you into a room.” That’s why R4 Galleria, Meeks’ third store within the R4 Shoppes family, is full of one-of-a-kind pieces you can design a room around. Her daughter, Jessica Meeks, runs the show at R4 Galleria in the Carmel Arts & Design District and knows the uniqueness of their brand is what keeps customers coming back again and again. “We don’t want to carry items you could easily find in Home Goods or Target,” Jessica Meeks says. “What you find at R4 Galleria needs to be special — something you would be proud to showcase in your home.” Store manager Pam Heisler will help you find that one-of-a-kind conversation starter — they're R4 Galleria's specialty.
