'The Hamptons have come to represent an unparalleled combination of wealth, exclusive real estate, and natural beauty. But what distinguishes the Hamptons from the rest of the country's vacation spots is their ability to attract talent from the art and design worlds. Whereas artists such as Jackson Pollack and writers such as Truman Capote made the area famous, nowadays it is designers who are contributing to the area's vibrancy.
Designing the Hamptons: Portraits of Interiors puts forth a collection of the latest installations by the country's leading interior designers.' (from the blurb).
Designers featured include Steven Gambrel, Thomas O'Brien, Jamie Drake, Thom Filicia, Joe Nahem, Waldo Fernandez, Vicente Wolf and Jonathan Adler.
