Animal Rescue of The Hamptons Designer Showhouse

Take a look at how our room at the
 ARF designer showhouse ended up.

Zoe, who designed the room, took inspiration from the existing wall color which was a bright persimmon or even a dull Hermes orange, & the set of Mitchell Gold Upholstery, The London sofa and 2 armchairs in a pale linen mix called "Lingo Ecru"

Whilst Zoe liked the existing wall color, she felt it a little over powering for a complete room, and looked for a way to tone it down, either with adding a stripe or design, or using a wall paper...in the end deciding on using a collection of vintage NY Times Newspapers. c 1930 and 1940

This background then meant Zoe could scout for pieces that complemented her look, ie, gold tones mixed with earthy neutrals and texture woven pieces..

All pieces were donated by ECA suppliers, and chosen by Zoe



Battery Operated Candles with a remote control


A pair of small Antique Mexican chairs (found at ARF!) were perfect rustic details that gave the room
some depth and character

MARC CHAGALL MAKES AN IMPRESSION AT ENGLISH COUNTRY ANTIQUES

SEE WORKS BY MARC CHAGALL AT ENGLISH COUNTRY ANTIQUES
THE JEWISH MUSEUM, NEW YORK CITY

above: Eve Incurs God's Displeasure
Meyer Shapiro called Chagall (1887-1985) one of the greatest 
religious artists of all time, and these lithographs 
show why: powerful drawing, intense colors, and, 
most of all, compassion for the characters.

English Country now has a collection for sale from the " Chagall Bible Suite" of original prints, from the 1960's at our Bridgehampton Store
all are signed by the artist and are in limited editions of 50.
print size 10.5" x 14"
framed size: 25 x 28.5"
priced at $ 2600 each

above: Sarah and The Angels

In 1930 he was commissioned by Vollard, a Paris
art dealer, to produce a series of illustrations
based upon Bible stories. Chagall travelled to
Palestine in search of inspiration, but the project
was a lengthy one, interrupted by World War II,
and was not eventually completed until the early

1950s.


Currently on show at New York's Jewish Museum is a show dedicated to the time during WWII & how it influenced his art.
CHAGALL, 'LOVE, WAR & EXCILE'

ENGLISH COUNTRY ANTIQUES &
STEVEN GAMBREL DECORATE
THE WATCHCASE PENTHOUSE APARTMENT 
see our Ad campaign below...


2013 saw the completion of the WATCHCASE apartments in Sag Harbor. A former manufacturing plant has been transformed into 64 luxury apartments.
The showcase apartment was recently opened to the public, the interiors having been conceived by Steven Gambrel, of S.R Gambrel.


Steven has been a long time client of English Country Antiques, & came to us when he needed lighting, antiques and accessories to complement his own upholstery line


Steven has created an eclectic modern interior with his mixture of early and mid century pieces, his luxurious upholstered beds, sofas and chairs, and bold patterned window furnishings.


Steven chose some industrial style pieces, in a variety of metals and finishes, and the architects have left reminders of the buildings past in the brick walls and large factory style windows.


Antique Zinc Filing Boxes, Wire Birdcages and a metal hat box, 
all from English Country Antiques

English Leather Swivel Chair and Bobbin Side Table, all from English Country Antiques


Rustic Round Table with Green Painted Top, bottle holder, baskets and other accessories from English Country Antiques
