Interior designer extraordinaire Alexa Hampton is known for her collections of home furniture, fabric, lighting and rugs, all cast in her timeless, classic aesthetic. Elements of British architecture, Roman antiquities and pretty, neutral colors are hallmarks of Hampton’s style, and result in comfortable and elegant rooms. Named by Architectural Digest as one of the top 100 interior designers and architects in the world, Alexa Hampton is also president of Mark Hampton LLC, the design firm launched in the 1970s by her legendary father. Hampton has put her own name on a variety of high-quality home products: lighting (the Alexa Hampton Lighting Collection for Visual Comfort & Co.), two lines of woven fabrics (the Alexa Hampton for the Mark Hampton Signature Collection and Alexa Hampton Designs, both for Kravet), carpets (the Alexa Hampton Carpet Collection for Stark Carpet), fireplaces (Chesney's), and furniture (the Alexa Hampton Collection, for Hickory Chair Company). She's also one of the three designers who helped launch Gilt's Home Design Boutiques line.
An updated-classic look that’s sophisticated yet eminently livable: That’s the look that defines the modern-day Brooklyn brownstone. We’ve put together a selection of furnishings, bedding, lighting, art, and accents that are inspired by this aesthetic. Each piece is distinguished by its attention to detail, texture, and structure.
Everything you need to throw an over-the-top glamorous awards season affair is here. Outfit yourself and your home with floor-sweeping gowns, dapper suits, sparkling jewels, elegant champagne flutes, and crystal serving bowls.
When it comes to holiday decor, there’s nothing wrong with being a little old-school. Traditional trimmings and accents, in all their red, green, and metallic festivity, remind us of happy holidays past… and who doesn’t need a little nostalgia? From holly-border tablecloths to nutmeg-scented candles, these classic options will add a little cheer to the end of the year.
Lighting can make or break a room's design cred. And we’re not just talking about a soft, functional glow — the right design can pull a space together. We’ve assembled some of our favorites here, all at a fraction of their original price — so you can light up your design without darkening your financial picture.
