The fresh, new face of home design debuts at 83 Main Street in East Hampton.  The hamlet’s historical landmark “Home Sweet Home” may now become “Home Stylish Home.”  If it looks slightly familiar you may recognize HB Home Design from one of its other “only the best addresses” locations in Westport, CT, Greenwich, CT, and Manhattan’s upper east side at 74th and Lexington.

Designers Pat Healing and Dan Barsanti who founded HB Home more than two decades ago as an interior design firm offer not only their design services but a retail shop which can provide everything from the perfect hostess gift to the whole furnishings for your new Further Lane digs.  Long time clients and new devotees know the importance of immediate gratification with a shop just around the corner with a bonus of being managed by area residents – Lead Designer Sun Y. Lee formerly of Robert Stilin and Michael Smith and Retail Design Studio Manager Kristine King from Calypso East Hampton.

You have to leave any city cynicism at the door when you enter the vibrant and inviting interior and comfy chairs, couches, and pillows which remind us that homes are meant to be lived in, not museums where you cower in fear of a spilled merlot or kids just back from the beach.  You can also discover new artists here from designers to ceramicists to painters.  Indeed the color palate is reminiscent of painters who flock here for the famed East End light


HB Home Executive Mark Friedman points out their user friendly approach to design where Healing and Barsanti can accommodate different budgets as well as different styles, working with the client to realize his/her vision.  How refreshing in an age of a cookie cutter approach of some designers creating mini-me interiors everywhere they go.

 The Retail Design Studio is filled with luxe upholstered pieces, vintage Directional to Billy Baldwin Classics to exclusive HB-designed that can be bought right off the floor, or ordered in custom fabrics from their edited D&D fabric library.  There are also plenty of unique items at an affordable price point for your personal “must have it now” collection.  Seeing is believeing.

And yes, if you come in you can sit on the couches.  You just may not want to leave.

HB Home Design 83 Main Street, East Hampton, 631-608-4321.
