Shopping at Stone Road Vintage

If you spend your summers in the Hamptons, lucky you. And it looks like your luck just improved because now you get the chance to shop at Stone Road Vintage's recently opened space at Flowers & Company Antiques Center in Southampton. Stone Road Vintage is the vintage furniture and accessories collection that has been curated by owners Tom Dolby and Drew Frist. (You might remember their Hamptons home that was featured in Lonny a while back.) Stone Road Vintage had a really successful tastemaker tag sale last year on One Kings Lane, and that success spurred Tom and Drew on to open a retail shop selling pieces that they like to call "preppy beach meets exotic bohemian." You'll find mid-century ceramics, nautical themed accessories, Chinoiserie, Assouline books, and Sunbrella pillows from Les Toiles du Soleil. Sounds like just the right mix for your Hamptons home or any other home for that matter.

Stone Road Vintage's address is Flowers & Company Antiques Center, space #2, 245 County Road 39, Southampton, New York. For more information, call 646-470-7623 or visit their website.

In this shot, selections include a pair of mid-century exotic Moroccan-inspired brass lamps; a plaster and terra cotta female bust, dated 1959, from a Hudson Valley estate; a pair of turned wood mid-century stools; and a 1930s still life of a globe.

Other selections include a pair of 1940s gazelle antlers found in Sag Harbor, NY; a pair of mid-century Swedish abstracts; a Colorado taxidermy form mounted on a base; and a 1960s faux bamboo iron screen. The fabric on the vintage industrial camp stools (lower right) complements the more contemporary French designs of the Toiles Du Soleil pillows on offer.
