On Thursday, August 10, the East Hampton Historical Society brought together acclaimed interior designer Stephen Sills in conversation with David Netto at their seventh annual Summer Lecture Luncheon, held at the majestic Maidstone Club overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Stephen Sills just released his third book, Stephen Sills: A Vision for Design(Rizzoli). Wanting it to be a teaching book, Mr. Sills asked David Netto to write the text with his mission in mind.
A sold-out crowd was enthralled as David Netto engaged Stephen Sills in conversation, walking through the designer’s projects which featured a wide variety of styles and locations —including the East End of Long Island— and his own house and garden, which Karl Lagerfeld described as “The chicest house in America”. Netto artfully wrangled intimate design details and client backstories from Sills, as the audience hung on their every exchange.
