Tom Ford is perhaps one of the most iconic American fashion designers. He worked as a creative director for Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and founded his own famous fashion house, Tom Ford, in 2005.
So it makes sense that he would now purchase an iconic piece of American history.
Lasata, an East Hampton mansion with an impressive heritage, was recently acquired by a renowned designer. Although the house has been renovated from time to time, Lasata offers endless decorating ideas that will never go out of style. Check out the photos posted by Robb Report Real Estate below.
Jackie Kennedy, the former First Lady and the epitome of timeless elegance, spent her childhood summers in this classic home. He is known as one of the most beautiful and important estates in New York. The name “Lasata” means “place of peace” in the Algonquian language of the Montauk Indian people.
This home was designed in 1917 by famous architect Arthur C. Jackson. Lasata was carefully restored in 2007 and 2019, preserving the original bones of the classic rooms. The interior of Jackie O’s former mansion was redesigned by his famous interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch.
The home has nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms, and the 16,000 square foot home sits on 7.15 acres of beautiful land in historic East Hampton. Amenities include a two-bedroom guest cottage, a caretaker’s cottage, and a pool house.
This home is fashionable yet always lush, with classic mid-century architecture enhanced by a combination of vintage and modern artistic furniture. Dark wood parquet floors highlight the property’s history. It’s no wonder that the iconic Tom Ford wanted to add this house to his real estate portfolio, especially given his penchant for the combination of modern and classic design embodied in his former London mansion.
One of the highlights is the chic dining room, decorated in modern Scandinavian style. A long wooden table is flanked by a cobalt blue fireplace, above which hangs an incredibly rare Paavo His Tinel snowflake chandelier. Paneled windows flood the room with natural light, and built-in bookshelves house the owner’s impressive literary collection. Long white beams across the ceiling remind viewers that they are in a historic home, despite the modern touches. In this space, tradition and modern decorative elements are in perfect harmony.
The home of one of the world’s greatest designers and an iconic first lady may be a little out of reach for most of us, but you can recreate the gorgeous modern-meets-vintage mix in your own space. It is completely possible to do so. Purchase the compilation below to get started.
