Interior Designer Scott Sanders is this year’s Honorary Chairperson of the Friday, July 20, Preview Cocktail Party, which offers patrons an early buying opportunity. Ticket proceeds from benefit the East Hampton Historical Society.
“I have had the extraordinary pleasure of calling East Hampton my treasured getaway for over a decade. Precious few places compare to the East Hampton mystique of peaceful escape, so I proudly join all those who are grateful for the mission of the East Hampton Historical Society – that of collecting, preserving, presenting and interpreting the material, cultural and economic heritage of our town. I am truly humbled to have been asked to serve as this year’s honorary chair,” said designer Scott Sanders.
Both the Preview Cocktail Party and the Antiques Show take place on the rustic grounds of the Mulford Farm, located on James Lane in the heart of East Hampton Village. Maintained by the East Hampton Historical Society, this 3.5-acre property features a restored 17th-century farmhouse as well as several barns and outbuildings that are among the oldest on Long Island.
“So much of what visitors and residents alike love about East Hampton is a direct result of the Society’s tireless efforts. Enjoy a lovely evening on the pastoral grounds of Mulford Farm and know that your dollars support the East Hampton Historical Society’s many museums and programs,” said Sanders.
The East Hampton Antiques Show continues to be well received by collectors and dealers alike. Its popular offerings of wares and art come from a diverse assembly of more than 50 antiques and art dealers, housed in elegant white tents across the farmstead’s greensward. Twenty-five A-list interior designers, who work in the Hamptons, are also supporting this year’s show on the Designers Committee. This year’s list includes Charlotte Moss, David Netto, Robert Stilin, Marshall Watson, Tom Samet and Nathan Wold, to name just a few.
The focus of the show is on vintage decorative items for the home and garden as well as art. Classic rattan and bamboo furniture, lighting, textiles, architectural elements, American and European country decorated furniture, Art Deco and Moderne, garden ornaments, wrought-iron accessories, industrial items, paintings, trade signs, period jewelry, weathervanes, and mirrors will be for sale. With a broad range of styles from classic to contemporary represented, there is truly something for everyone.
