Splotch #15 is one of 27 Sol LeWitt pieces to be installed at City Hall Park.   

Restoration Hits the Beach
Familiar mall fixture Restoration Hardware is moving seaside this summer, making a two-story home for itself on Main Street in the East Hamptons. The new showroom is housed in a 1908 mercantile building with original arched keystone windows and exposed brick and timber. The ribbon cutting is this Saturday, a great excuse for alate-spring weekend getaway (69 Main St., East Hampton; 631-907-1300; 5/21, 11:30 a.m.)

The Whole World’s Gone Adler
Discounts abound this week on designer housewares. Premier “happy chic” peddler Jonathan Adler is opening the doors of his Bushwick warehouse for an epic three-day sale this Friday, offering up to 70 percent off new furniture, lighting, accessories, and more (513 Irving Ave., nr. Halsey St., Bushwick; 212-645-2802; 5/20–5/22). Later in the weekend, national discount chain HomeGoods opens its first Manhattan location in the Upper West Side, with 20 to 60 percent off regular prices for major-label home furnishings (Murano, Creuset, and, again, Adler), spread over two floors and 20,000 square feet (795 Columbus Ave., nr. 100th; 212-280-6303; 5/22).

City Hall’s Main Surplus: Art
Fresh off bringing Andy Warhol, in monument form, back to Union Square, the Public Art Fund unveils “Sol LeWitt: Structures, 1965–2006” at City Hall Park this week. The exhibition will include 27 pieces spanning more than 40 years of the artists’ career. The structures collectively relay LeWitt’s fascination with the modular, the serial, the irregular, and the geometric, with repeating stacks of pyramids, cubes, and imagined shapes, some of which have never been presented side by side (City Hall Park, bet. Broadway and Chambers St. and Centre St. and Park Row;; 5/24–12/2).
