A Hamptons Design Shop via LA


A Hamptons Design Shop via LA

Christine Chang Hanway July 20, 2012

Decorator Natasha Esch’s curatorial eye brings a theatrical glamor to her recently opened design store Monc XIII in the seaside town of Sag Harbor. No surprise, really, when you learn that the former director of Wilhelmina Models Worldwide lived in LA for twelve years before moving to the Hamptons two years ago.

Esch and her husband, web entrepreneur Matthew Coffin, have spent the last two years painstakingly renovating a historic 19th-century storefront building. The resulting mix of rustic wood with metal creates a fitting backdrop for her particular design vision of European midcentury mixed with luxury home accessories; we call it Bi-Coastal Luxe.

Above: Italian midcentury chairs surround a simple wood dining table.

Above: Esch and Coffin created a dramatic double-height space within the 19th-century historic storefront using rustic posts and beams salvaged from an old southern barn. Recycled-oak floor boards add warmth to the space.

Above: An Italian Midcentury Sofa with Vintage Flame Stitch Upholstery sits in front of custom designed, reclaimed oak cabinets, inspired by French midcentury design.

Above: LA-style glamor comes to Sag Harbor in the form of Zebra-Upholstered Chairs and a Chartreuse Chesterfield.

Above: A leather-wrapped Colman cooler is an example of the Esch's coastal luxe home accessories offerings.
