2012 Hampton Designer Showhouse Study

Equestrian chic may be a popular theme these days, but it doesn’t get any more authentic or elegant than Patrick Lönn‘s luxurious understated study at the Hampton Designer Showhouse.

Every detail references an equestrian lifestyle. The ceiling paper, for example, was patterned after an Hermes scarf. Lönn created a pattern and had artist Vesna Bricelj paint parts of it. After making further modifications in photoshop, it was transformed into the stunning wallpaper.

Even the saddle stitching on the leather furniture makes reference to equestrian style.

Lönn collaborated with many artisans to create custom pieces for the handsome space. The handmade rug from Italy by Hakimian adds a subtle texture and pattern. Several pieces such as the beautiful Roman Thomas table,

Melissa Newman’s pottery, mixed with exquisite Tang Dynasty Earthenware horse sculptures from Illiad antiques, create a tonal scene against the Phillip Jeffries horsehair paper.

Hermes made several contributions to the room, the star being their new super light carbon saddle, for which Lönn made a custom leather stand.

Not wanting to worry about the upkeep of  fresh flowers, Lönn came up with a clever solution – a sheaf of dried stalks contained by an Hermes bit – so tailored and timeless.

With a unified and serene color scheme, initiated by the Stark curtain fabric, and an thematic attention to detail, Lönn has created a soothing scenario that even a non equestrian would be happy to inhabit!

  1. Love the theme. The details in subtle and surprising places keep it balanced. A perfect room for a large house.

  2. Stacey-
    I know that this is difficult to believe, but I am speechless, totally speechless. There is so much perfection here, but I will say that the ceiling and the saddle are beyond fabulous.
    Happy Tuesday.

  3. Now this designer is into the details! I love it. The ceiling is amazing and I love how it’s just everywhere you look. You get the passion here.

  4. What an inviting space, I loved meandering through it and seeing all of the details with you. I wish I could live in that gorgeous suede chair. The ceiling papers are marvelous, what a great idea!!

  5. This room makes me ready to hop in the saddle for a jaunt! That ceiling paper is incredible. What a detail!! Love that black horse…we have the same one and it sits in my older son’s room, as he is very comfy in the saddle!!

    Great coverage, Stacey!

  6. Funny, I have an equestrian chic post today too! I am doing a showhouse review this week and this room is one of my features. My favorite element was the ceiling…stunning!

  7. Sophisticated and stunning. I adore the artwork. Tha custom saddle holder, serving double duty with the magazines, is the perfect touch (like the bit on the wheat). I also always enjoy subtle color.

  8. If you[re going to “do it”…do it right. Amazing in so many ways. I would luv to ‘feel” these things. franki
