THE FOLLOWING LETTER HAS BEEN MAILED TO STOCKHOLDER IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROPOSED MERGER:

RESTORATION HARDWARE, INC.

Important Reminder

June 4, 2008

Dear Restoration Hardware Stockholder,

The Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for June 12, 2008 is rapidly approaching and our records reflect that you have not yet voted your shares. If you have already voted your shares and our records do not yet reflect it, thank you for your vote. At this meeting, stockholders are being asked to approve the merger agreement between Restoration Hardware and certain affiliates of Catterton Management Company, LLC, which is a private equity firm. If the merger is approved, Restoration Hardware stockholders will be entitled to receive $4.50 in cash for each share they own. For the merger to be approved, it will require, among other things, that stockholders representing at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares vote FOR the transaction. For this reason, every vote counts, regardless of the number of shares you own.

The Board of Directors of Restoration Hardware, on the unanimous recommendation of an Independent Committee comprised of all of the independent directors of Restoration Hardware, has approved the merger agreement and recommends that Restoration Hardware’s stockholders vote “FOR” the adoption of the merger agreement.

In making your decision, we urge you to consider the following facts:

 

   

Three of the leading independent proxy voting advisory firms, RiskMetrics Group (formerly known as Institutional Shareholder Services or ISS), Glass Lewis & Co. and Proxy Governance have recommended that their clients vote FOR the transaction. In making its determination RiskMetrics concluded: “Based on our review of the terms of the transaction and the factors described above, including the reasonable premium and the review process conducted by the independent committee, we believe that the merger agreement warrants shareholder support.”

 

   

The cash consideration in the merger represents a premium of 73.1% to the closing price on November 6, 2007, the last trading day before the Independent Committee approved the original merger agreement; a premium of 45.4% to the average closing price for the previous 30 trading day period ended November 6, 2007; a premium of 40.8% to the average closing price for the previous 60 trading day period ended November 6, 2007; and a premium of 20.9% for the 90 trading day period ended November 6, 2007.

 

   

The offer is not subject to a financing condition. Subject to receipt of stockholder approval prior to June 30, 2008, the offer provides certainty to a prompt closing.

Based on these and other factors, the Independent Committee of the Board of Directors and the Board have determined that the merger is fair to, and in the best interests of, Restoration Hardware stockholders. We recommend that stockholders vote FOR the adoption of the merger agreement.
