Inspired Design: Hampton Haven

A Haven in the Hamptons

In the living room of the Bridgehampton, New York, weekend home of interior designer James “Ford” Huniford, antique painter’s stools serve as cocktail tables in front of an 18th-century English settee. The collage is by Ingrid Pitzer, and the metal plant stands are antique; the linen-covered sofa is from Huniford’s new furniture line, the oak bench and nautical buoys are Early American, and the floors are reclaimed pine.

The den’s wing chair and sofa, both upholstered in linen, are Huniford designs; the hoop sculpture is by Jennifer Andrews, and the vintage side tables inspired similar ones in Huniford’s furniture line.

Early-20th-century French diagrams for light fixtures are displayed in the dining room, and seaweed sculptures by an unknown artist rest on a vintage table.

Watercolors by an unknown artist are mounted on clipboards and hung in the hall.

What inspires you about this space?


  1. I really like the watercolors on the clipboards. Not sure if I personally would go with clipboards but I love the use of an unknown artists work. Kudos for a great find!

  2. Great blog Marie! I love that simple looking coffee table in the first photo and the wooden table in the 3rd photo...reminds me of a picnic table. I saw a similar table in a Tahoe cabin that I once stayed in. I think it fits the cabin theme perfectly.
