Defining elegance and casual luxe, its popularity spanning further than just the coastal playground of New York’s elite, the revered Hamptons style is characterised by a raw neutral palette of light linens and timbers with classic silhouettes. It’s no surprise that this style is still as popular as ever when it comes to interior design – not to mention coastal décor schemes from the living space to the bedroom.
It’s often said that the hub of the home is the kitchen, but I beg to differ. To me, the living room is the gathering space of the modern home. Combine this function with an interior style seeped in comfort, a light & fresh palette and casual elegance for the ultimate in a casually sophisticated interior, with a decidedly classic edge. The Hamptons style lends itself perfectly to these aims, especially in living room furniture additions.
A softly skirted sofa, coffee table with a raw aesthetic, and textured rug are three go-to items when it comes to achieving this elegant aesthetic. My North Hampton Sofa offers the soft sink-in feeling that every luxury sofa should provide, and because its legs are concealed behind the textured linen skirt, there's no need to worry about meticulously matching the timber to other furniture finishes - proving it to be a versatile and timeless piece. Pair the casual luxe of the North Hampton Sofa with my Montauk Square Coffee Table for a natural look, featuring raw timber cross base and stone top, or the Max Sparrow French Symmetry Hexagonal Coffee Table for a contemporary take on this ever-popular interior design style. Define the living space with a rug with woven texture, adding depth and the finishing touch to a Hamptons-esque style.
Present a light, airy, and elegant dining room aesthetic by incorporating raw and natural timbers in carefully selected dining chairs and table. Adhering to a Hamptons aesthetic means adhering to a neutral palette, a consequent of which calls for layers of texture and unique detailing. My Wainscott Extension Dining Table is all about the finer details, offering intricate carved detailing on the base of the dining table, enhancing the classically refined furniture piece to create the perfect addition to a Hamptons style home. Style this table with the Max Sparrow Waverly Woven Back Dining Chair, featuring a tactile & textural woven back, for a cohesive dining room design. The Waverly Marble Top Sideboard, with shuttered doors and inset marble top finishes the dining room with both function and style.
Fancy transforming your bedroom into the beachside havens reminiscent of the Hamptons?
Picture this: greeting every morning in a casually elegant bedroom swathed in natural linen, a gentle breeze blowing through soft drapes. It’s a soft and serene scenario that many can only dream of when picturing the perfect bedroom, and it’s something that is certainly achievable. My Max Sparrow Palermo Queen Bed with the coordinating Palermo 3 Drawer Nightstand will look effortlessly elegant against a warm white wall (and not as easily attainable, a sandy beach outlook...), add a textured rug beneath the bed and a cosy throw at the end of the mattress to complete the sophisticated space – although beware, Monday's are made even harder to get out of bed with a boudoir this serene!
