DESIGN:redefined By Alexis Petras, Contributing Writer HB Home Last Saturday night, a cocktail reception was held at the new HB Home Design Studio, in Easthampton, for artist, Patricia Gutierrez, whose installation will be on display for a while as they also bring in works from various emerging artists. I had previously committed to attending my good friend, Dr. Carl’s party that night and was not able to go. However, I was glad to have had an opportunity to stop in for a visit earlier in the day to chat with designers, Pat and Dan, about all their new creative endeavors…. When founders Pat Healing and Daniel Barsanti, opened their fourth retail design studio, they brought with them a design aesthetic that resonates well with Hamptons residence, timeless sophistication + modern sensibility. Their mantra that everyone should be able to achieve luxe, individualized looks for the home is revealed in the very distinct vignettes which display an eclectic mix of both vintage and modern pieces. Their passion for design has also inspired them to create a new furniture line, manufactured by Kindall, exclusively for HB Home, that represents a very updated and fresh approach to traditional designs. In addition, they have designed a small collection of handmade, ceramic Christopher Spitzmiller lamps, that are now available in their retail stores. What I found to be particularly interesting and chic, were these tables made of lucite blocks, that encased “floating” branches of birch and French elm. I also loved the blue and white bone inlay cocktail table from India, which can be custom ordered in a waterfall or parsons design, in various color and pattern variations. Next weekend, when the Hampton Designer Showhouse opens in Sag Harbor, you will have an opportunity to view the work of these Connecticut based design talents, as you enter the foyer and proceed to the living room of the house, which is just another project Pat and Dan were involved in this year, after the opening of their NYC and Easthampton locations.
