The Hamptons concept store
EAST HAMPTON, N.Y.-Lexington Company, the Stockholm-based lifestyle brand, has opened its first U.S. store here, a 1,000-square-foot concept store that showcases many home furnishings categories, including towels, bedding, furniture and tabletop.
Lexington Company was founded in 1997 by husband and wife team Tommy and Kristina Lindhe and is named for the town where the American Revolutionary War began, and reflects an appreciation for American history, New England style and traditional craftsmanship, according to the company. Lexington Company has 26 freestanding stores in five countries and is sold at more than 900 stores in more than 20 countries.
"The culture and style in East Hampton is relaxed, sophisticated and elegant," Lindhe said. "The people, the houses and beaches have been here for years. We see a niche for our relaxed luxury brand and are thrilled to have found a home here."
Product prices range from $35 to $400 for bedding; $9 to $125 for home and tabletop; and $39 to $275 for accessories. The shop also offers men's and women's clothing. To celebrate the Hamptons concept store, the company has launched the Stars and Stripes collection in which the American flag is a key design element.
