Intimate views into 20 houses by celebrity interior designers that define Hamptons style now.
After studying art and architecture at the Cooper Union in New York City, Anthony Iannacci moved to Milan where he established himself as an art critic, journalist, and curator. During his eleven-year tenure there, he was published regularly in Artforum, Artscribe and Vogue Italia. He also orchestrated exhibitions across Northern Italy and consulted with collectors and dealers on American artists. Upon returning to New York, Iannacci dedicated his professional efforts to publishing volumes on architects and designers; he founded Edizioni Press, and, later, Architecture/Interiors Press in Los Angeles. He currently edits and art directs books on design, interior design, and architecture.
"A refreshing, divergent look at luxurious residences that stand
apart from the typical megamansions."
"Every year there are at least one or two books that seek to
capitalize on the 'Hamptons style.' They can often be expensive and
hollow affairs, produced chiefly for last-minute purchases at
BookHampton for a host or hostess gift. Design in the
Hamptons isn't one of those books. Imperfections take the rooms
off of the pages of overly styled magazine layouts to favor the
natural environment and ever-changing climates of the region. The
fantasy that one could enter any one of these rooms is palpable and
their minimal, primarily modernist feel is clean and unfussy, even
in the more traditional structures. It is a casual style that is in
no way unstylish, but not stuffy either. It is hard not to be
inspired by them."
--The East Hampton Star "The beautifully illustrated volume appeals to our voyeuristic and inspiration-searching minds--featuring photographs of 19 private homes, many of which belong to their designers themselves. Iannacci talks about how people are now cherishing what land they have, making careful decisions and using it wisely. The book is a pleasure both to read and flip through. There's variety and contrast, both within the homes themselves and from one project to another."
