Dan Scotti Design
Long Island’s country heart
Dan Scotti’s design for an East Hampton kitchen has a decidedly ranchy vibe, which the clients must appreciate. Scotti went all in, with reclaimed-oak flooring, a glass-front saloon cabinet straight out of Cimarron (via 1stDibs) and a distressed farm table from Petersen Antiques in L.A. No expense was spared. “I hand-brushed the tongue-and-groove ceiling with a dark gray paint and then had it repeatedly sanded and waxed to produce a chalky texture,” Scotti says. Elevating the ensemble are nicely worn Les Arcs dining chairs, designed by Charlotte Perriand in 1969 for the Savoie ski resort of the same name. Evoking another kind of rough country, they help propel this project into the wild.
“Above all, I believe that each and every design decision must be rooted in authenticity.”
