The East Hampton Historical Society announces the return of the East Hampton Antiques & Design Show on the grounds of Mulford Farm, Saturday, July 15, through Sunday, July 16. Now in its seventeenth year, the East Hampton Antiques & Design Show is widely recognized as the premier antiques and design event in the Hamptons.
Liz Lange, American fashion designer, entrepreneur, author, and podcast host is the Honorary Chairperson of the Friday, July 14, Preview Cocktail Party, which offers patrons an early buying opportunity of the extraordinary array of antiques, jewelry, textiles, collectibles, and timelessly chic furniture and accessories. Ticket proceeds from the Preview Cocktail benefit the East Hampton Historical Society.
“As the current owner of the treasured and iconic Grey Gardens, the historical structures of East Hampton are near and dear to my heart. The buildings that the East Hampton Historical Society maintains are vital and make up the composition of one of the loveliest and best-planned villages in America, a village I have been lucky enough to have been coming to since my childhood,” said Ms. Lange.
“It’s a great evening because old and new East Hampton are all together, thinking about how lucky we are to be here…and the shopping is fun! So come and shop, come see your friends, come meet some designer you’ve always wanted to meet. It’s a highlight of the summer and an event I never miss. I have found some of my favorite possessions there, including jewelry, table top and even the outdoor table we use on our back patio. Hope to see you there!” said Liz Lange.
Both the Preview Cocktail Party and the Antiques & Design Show take place on the bucolic grounds of the Mulford Farm, located on James Lane in the heart of East Hampton Village. Maintained by the East Hampton Historical Society, this 3.5-acre property features a restored 17th-century farmhouse as well as several barns and outbuildings that are among the oldest on Long Island.
The East Hampton Antiques & Design Show continues to be well-received by collectors and dealers alike. Its popular offerings of wares and art come from a diverse assembly of more than 50 antiques and art dealers, housed in elegant white tents across the farmstead’s greensward. The focus of the show is on vintage decorative items for the home and garden as well as art. Classic rattan and bamboo furniture, lighting, textiles, architectural elements, American and European country-decorated furniture, Art Deco and Moderne, garden ornaments, wrought-iron accessories, industrial items, paintings, trade signs, period jewelry, weathervanes, and mirrors will be for sale. With a broad range of styles from classic to contemporary represented, there is truly something for everyone.
Advance tickets for the Antiques & Design Show cost $15. Show hours are Saturday, July 15, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Sunday the show is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The show offers an on-site café. Enjoy light bites or a full meal with local flavor, there’s no need to take a break from shopping!
