The Beach in the Hamptons is my favorite place in the world, except for Paris.
I have been installing the Recreation Room I created for the Hampton Designer Showhouse. The showhouse opens this Sunday, July 26th and runs through Labor Day. My inspiration for the room came from a spectacular lemon tree wood pool table by Tresserra Furniture of Barcelona. I saw the pool table for the first time in December, while I was in Paris with my husband. My dear friend produced the Broadway show “An American In Paris” and invited us to attend the international premiere. My husband and I were walking near the Louvre, and happened upon Tresserra’s Paris showroom. We were lured into the showroom by the most unique, magnificent pool table. Rarely does a piece of furniture move and inspire me as much as this did. I created a modern, high style recreation space for family and friends to relax and spend time together in an elegant, comfortable space that complements the chic Hamptons lifestyle. Don’t miss seeing the most beautiful pool table in the world before it is transported back to Paris again. Or maybe someone will buy it and it will live in the Hamptons forever.
Design Tip: Every great design begins with an inspiration piece. Create a room design around one object that inspires you.
