We fancy ourselves as design snobs, usually horrified at the state of home design bouqtiues found in beach destinations. Luckily the Hamptons is one exception with its plethora of high-design stores that can satiate the fashionable eye as readily as New York or Los Angeles. Monc XIII is found in a shingled wedge of a building in Sag Harbor offering a trove of mid-century and antique finds curated by designer/owner Natasha Esch. One of the best design eyes working in the Hamptons today, Esch narrates a sophisticated design palette that marries antique pieces with bolder mid-century and early 20th century designers that yields a layered, evolved look. The freestanding store offers a mix of house and lifestyle finds from Peheun blankets and Hermes dishes to house-branded linens and books.
For those that only summer in the Hamptons, an impressive website offers a full online storefront with delivery worldwide.
One of the Hamptons top interior design talents offers Sag Harbor showroom with curated finds from 18th Century France to mid-century Danish and iconic Brazilian designers.
