What’s Hot in Hamptons Home DécorWe asked local stores what’s selling at the moment . . .
1. Natural Movement
At English Country Home in Bridgehampton “live” edge dining tables are all the rage. “The edges of the table are left with the natural movement of the wood,” says proprietor Zoe Hoare. “They lend an organic note to a modern, hard-edge interior.” Popular are bleached natural oak, deep grey and a dark espresso finish. $2,850 – $6,800
2. Mercury Rising
With an antique silver finish on the inside and a silver foil and luster finish on the outside, these shimmery blown-glass Eclectic Mercury Votives from Pottery Barn in Southampton bring a festive look to candlelight. Place them as a centerpiece on a table or as a focal point on a mantel or console display. Multicolored. Set of 6 $39.50
3. Pillow Talk
Great for outdoors or in, designer Kerry Joyce’s inspired interpretation of Javanese batik from Restoration Hardware in East Hampton expression in pillow covers crafted of high-performance Sunbrella® fabric – to resist sun, heat, fading, stains and moisture. Jacquard loomed in a textured weave, the fabric captures the energetic patterns and subtle color gradations of wax-resist batik cloth. $89 – $119
4. Horns of Plenty
Could salad taste even better after being tossed with these African horn tongs from Destination Haus in Amagansett? We think so. These beautiful salad servers were handcrafted in East Africa from the distinctive horns of a buffalo. Responsibly harvested from naturally shed horns. Each spoon is unique. $65
5. Mod Squad
So Hamptons-y, this super relaxed modular sofa from West Out East in East Hampton is made up of various components (each sold individually) allowing you to mix and match for a configuration that works in your space. While available in a large range of fabrics and leathers, it’s the neutrals – off-white, beiges and grays – that are most popular. Can be double-sided to work with varying activities. “One side can be lounge-y for watching TV and the other can have a shallower seat depth for entertaining,” says designer and showroom manager Kimberly Warren.
