After featuring a sophisticated London townhouse by Stewart Manger earlier this year, The Glam Pad was enchanted by the elegant style of this rising star in the design world, and we were eager to highlight more of his work. Today we are delighted not only to preview his new book, Romancing the Home, which is released by Rizzoli this week, but also to share an exclusive video tour of Stewart’s magnificent Hamptons home.
Built in 1889, “Top O’Dune” is one of the original cottages built along Gin Lane. Throughout renovations over the decades, Stewart has always painstakingly preserved the original character of the home. Combined with exquisite ocean views, it is truly a little slice of heaven!
Having apprenticed with celebrated New York interior designers such as David Easton, Bunny Williams, and David Kleinberg, Stewart Manger launched his eponymous firm in 2016, and has quickly established himself as a top designer, creating arresting bespoke interiors. His surehanded approach that seamlessly melds the contemporary and the Old World is fresh and inviting, and his affinity for seeking the best artisans and workrooms for custom work results in impeccable homes. He now gives readers a glimpse into his process in Romancing the Home.
Sprinkled throughout the book are insights on building a sophisticated art collection, collaborating with local artisans, choosing timeless fabrics, combining modern art with classic architecture, mixing of exotic and playful patterns, and finding that perfect special touch to complete a room. Beautifully photographed projects include a restored nineteenth-century home on the cliffs of Scotland that embraces the warmth and comfort of an English country house; a hillside house overlooking the Bay of Palma in Mallorca; a traditional Manhattan apartment; and Stewart’s very own shingle-style Hamptons beach house.
