NEW KDHamptons Design Diary: Homenature's NEW Fabulous Finds!
Homenature in Southampton is definitely one of my top three favorite design destinations on the East End. I love the whole vibe of the store, the lighting, calming natural colors and textures, and the one of a kind pieces that owner John Heilmann and his manager Cristina Peffer discover on their exotic buying trips.
John shares, “I love everything about honest design, natural materials, fair pricing and treating the earth with respect and care. With our own designs and productions, sprinklings of vintage finds and great accessories you will find a treasure trove for any casually hip modern home.” Doesn’t everyone want to live in a casually hip home these days~ I do! Get inspired by my KDH Design photo gallery below, and start thinking about how you want to live in your haute Hamptons home. We also asked Cristina Pepper to share her four Homenature must-haves for Summer 2013 as well…
*Head to Homenature at: 6 Main Street Southampton; 631.287.6277, or the Amagansett Store located at 255 Main St, Amagansett; 631.527.7088; or go to www.homenature.com
This is your one-stop pillow shop: Handwoven lines, cottons, Tibetan lamb, and more!
KDH loves the oversized blue and white coral resource that John brought in exclusively to Homenature. Great for bookshelves, coffee table, or pool house. I keep a few pieces in the glass hutch in my powder room.
PEPPER’S PICK: “We recently have brought in one of our favorite natural design resources…gems and minerals [above & below].
So magnificent in their color, shape and energy, they are bringing a life to the store that looks and feels great. I love how people are connecting to them in the same way we do.
NATURAL AGATE SLAB one of a kind Natural Agate Slab PRICE: $795
KDH loves this 60″ Teak Root Coffee Table with glass top [above]; price, $8800
John’s best buddy Michael Kors shares, “Homenature is chock a block with perfect pieces for the home that combine purity, charm and comfort all at once. The ultimate mix for modern living.”
PEPPER’S PICK: The Malibu Curved Sofa [above]
“When people sit in this sofa they literally can’t believe that something that looks that chic can be so comfortable. It’s the magic of Homenature…and the genius of John’s eye and our upholstery collection. After two decades of working and living with design, the one constant has been the evolution of ideas. That concept is what makes designers and clients love our line. They have the ability to customize their own idea…and we get to enjoy the process with them. And…we delivery on time! We beat most lead times…8-10 weeks,” says Cristina.
*Depending on Fabric Grade & Pricing, prices begin at $4950
KDH thinks this deco inspired antique, burled wood, lacquered finished dining table [above] is a unique stunner~ and a totally unexpected idea for a Hamptons beach house.
PEPPER’S PICK: White Volcanic Stone Sculpture
These pieces are incredible [see detail below]. What’s better than free form natural elements that resonate within us both artistically and energetically. Their form is the perfect sweet spot to help a room breathe outside the lines,” says Cristina.
*all are about 24-26″ High, 18-21″Wide, 12-18″ Deep, sizes and formations vary, $800
The plush white Tibetan lamb bench with chrome detail [above] is a best seller at Homenature. Exquisite marble table tops in various sizes and color formations are sprinkled throughout the store.
PEPPER’S PICK: The U-Shape Outdoor Sectional [above]
Cristina shares, “Our outdoor furniture line is a well thought out collection…and it takes lounging with friends and family to a new level. We had a client make a built-in octagon sectional inside of her gazebo….that was off of her sauna and steam room and natural stone outdoor showers. She chose a grey perennial fabric and it plays off of the wood with a cool serenity. Our workroom makes every piece to any specification without any customization fee. That’s a beautiful thing.”
