Samantha Knapp, interior designer and owner of Tiger Lily’s design studio and shop in Greenwich, CT, started her career as a TV journalist. . . but after 10 years behind the camera, she joined her designer mom Betsy’s business in 2009. Her design goal, like her mother’s, is to bring a fresh take to the classics, infusing a current, hip quality to a wide range of home accessories, from pillows to pillar candles. This sale embodies that old-meets-new aesthetic; each pick has an abundance of personality.
Done with disposable design? Set your eyes on these keepers. From a stately-yet-whimsical cowhide settee to a bench that pairs traditional and contemporary (Lucite legs, fabric with nailhead trim), these one-of-a-kind pieces are equal parts design and art. These are the statement-makers that can singlehandedly define a room; each one is downright heirloom-quality.
Retro turntables, cheeky art prints, plaid throws, a beer-making book ... and bacon: Everything here has been vetted by our staff hipsters as appropriate for that almost intangibly complex of genres: the hipster home. So all you have to do is make your picks ... then get DJ-ing.
Federal style was popularized in the U.S. in the late 18th and early 19th century, when things were generally very good: The American Revolution was over, and the U.S. was a bright-eyed new nation. Federal style echoed this sense of hope and promise with some of the most graceful and elegant designs ever created. Rich, dark woods, intricate workmanship, substantial scale and strong, sweeping lines are characteristic of the period. Want to get the look? These pieces echo that rich, bygone era but are scaled and styled to fit the way we live today.
Organic shapes, soft colors, and luxurious textures define this extensive selection of furnishings, rugs, bedding, accent pieces, and more, all scaled perfectly for apartment living. Make a few picks, and your abode will look subtly feminine without being frilly.
