I can very much see myself within these beautiful spaces of the Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer's homes, who is grand-daughter of Estée & in her own right - senior vice president and creative director of Estée Lauder, both the Hampton's country house and the Manhattan apartment she shares with her husband... how very signature Lauder & very Palatial!
In East Hampton, the grounds, which feature an English knot garden, were designed by Perry Guillot.
The living room of the Manhattan apartment was designed by Jacques Grange. The paintings are by Yves Klein (left) and Lucio Fontana; a 17th-century walnut table holds a lamp by Alberto Giacometti and a sculpture by Alexander Calder
The Manhattan living room includes a pair of Jean-Michel Frank armchairs upholstered in a Christopher Hyland fabric and a floor lamp by Alberto Giacometti; club chairs by Paul Dupré-Lafon flank the fireplace, the painting above the sofa is by Robert Ryman, and the braided rug is from Le Décor Français.
In Manhattan, the dressing room chandelier is by Baguès, the wall covering is by Gracie, and the circa-1970 desk is by Gabriella Crespi.
The tablecloth in the Manhattan dining room is made of a Jim Thompson silk, the ceiling fixture is by Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann, the painting is by Alberto Burri, and the wall color is a custom mix by Donald Kaufman Color.
Antique delft vases are displayed on rococo wall brackets in the East Hampton dining room; the Regency table is surrounded by Federal-style chairs, and the rug is by AM Collections.
