On Saturday, July 17, Luxe Interiors + Design celebrated its annual Hamptons issue at LongHouse Reserve, a 16-acre reserve and sculpture garden in East Hampton, New York, created by internationally acclaimed textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen.
Co-hosted by Luxe editor in chief Pamela Jaccarino and Kate Kelly Smith, executive VP and managing director of Luxe and chief sales officer of Sandow Design Group, the celebration welcomed more than 100 industry VIPs, including Cary and Lisa Kravet, Katie Leede, Anthony Baratta, David Scott, Sasha Bikoff, Charles Hilton and Brittany Bromley, whose Sagaponack farmhouse project with architect Stephen Potter graces the cover of the special edition. “This year’s issue marked an exciting milestone for the brand as we published the largest Hamptons issue in five years,” said Kelly Smith. “It’s certainly an enormous reason to celebrate in the most exquisite setting, along with our valued partners, sponsors and the talented community of design professionals that we champion.”
In addition taking in the extraordinary grounds and networking over light bites and assorted wines by Wölffer Estate Vineyard, guests lounged on luxurious home furnishing vignettes provided by OKA. “What a beautiful evening of design, art and nature. It was so great to finally reconnect with our friends in the design community. Luxe is a terrific partner, especially for us as a new brand in the U.S., and we were thrilled to be part of this magical Hamptons celebration,” said Krista Stelling, senior vice president of sales and marketing for OKA.
"I'm always impressed to see the deep connection Luxe has with the interior design community—but not surprised," added Adam Sandow, founder & chairman of Sandow Companies and founder & CEO of Material Bank. "Pam and Kate, and their teams, have created a stand-out issue for the Hamptons. The incredible turnout tonight is a testament to the power and vision of the brand."
Guests were also treated to a display of artwork by New York City–based artist Marco Gallotta, who created a unique interpretation of the Luxe Hamptons cover through his expert “paper-cutting” technique. “After taking a hiatus from our annual celebration last year, it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and connect with both established and emerging talents while celebrating the best in Hamptons architecture and design,” said Jaccarino.
The evening was sponsored by Marco Gallotta, OKA, Renovation Angel and Wölffer Estate Vineyard.
