Wendy Svarre and cabinet

“I recently found a great mid-20th-century mirrored bookcase at Gustavo Olivieri Antiques [352 Montauk Hwy., Wainscott, 631-537-2811,]. It’s old world, yet completely modern at the same time.”
—Wendy Svarre, president,
Hunter Boot

“A garden-tool set and gloves from Hermès [63 Main St., East Hampton, 631-324-1177,]. Having a garden is a luxury to begin with, and the Hermès set is both practical and luxurious. Plus, I love getting expensive things dirty!”
—Richard Sinnott, accessories director,
Michael Kors


“Framed family photographs. Brentano’s frames [121 Crosby St., NYC, 212-226-3004,] add personality and charm to any home.”
—David Oliver, owner, Paint & Paper Library

 “Artist Nasahiro Mori’s one-of-a-kind white plates [at Sara Japanese Pottery, 950 Lexington Ave., NYC, 212-772-3243,] are richly textured, yet elegantly simple and unconventional.”
—Jacqueline Coumans, fabric designer


“The bronze wishbone and teardrop pieces at Antony Todd [44 E. 11th St., NYC, 212-529-3252,] are both whimsical and sophisticated. They’re ideal accessories for a coffee or end table.”
—Eve Robinson, decorator
