Architecture, and animals, were center stage Friday, June 3 when Architectural Digest held the opening night preview of the inaugural Hamptons Contemporary Home Design and Décor Show, which benefits the Wainscott non-profit Animal Rescue Center of the Hamptons (ARF).
The evening included a silent auction, featuring a limited edition lithograph by James Rosenquist, along with other donations from select exhibitors to support ARF. The charity also had their animal rescue van at the event – where guests could meet the loveable animals looking for a new home. Thom Filicia and partner Greg Calejo became parents to a beautiful new puppy.
Over the course of the weekend, the 40,000 square-foot Hamptons Contemporary pavilion showcased over 160 luxury furniture and appliance manufacturers, one-of-a-kind artisan pieces, a state-of-the-art pool, as well as landscape design, home theater specialists and more.
