a spirited cottage escape where jenna bush hager gathers with friends

JENNA BUSH HAGER ushers her girls across the gravel lot of a farm stand on Long Island’s woodsy North Shore, one they’ve visited a hundred times before. The girls clutch butter cookies (treats from the owner) as they climb back into their 1980s Pontiac station wagon. Bush Hager’s carrying sweet corn and buratta, Sequoia Alpine tomatoes and just-baked bread—anything that looks fresh for an easy summer supper with neighbors. Some of these gatherings are planned, the poolside table set. Others spring up like afternoon rainstorms, as day slides into evening and a crowded pool means everyone is staying for dinner. It’s a routine the Today show cohost and former First Daughter has on delightful repeat in her world outside Manhattan, where she and her husband, Henry Hager, purchased a home for…

the iconic slipper chair

16th CENTURY An early predecessor, the farthingale chair accommodates the exceptionally wide hooped skirts of the Elizabethan era. VICTORIAN ERA The 19th-century boudoir chair sits low to the ground for ease of slipping on shoes (either by the lady or her dutiful maid). NAPOLEON III The low chauffeuse seat and its extravagant, ultrafeminine trim introduces a curved, sheltered back for sitting fireside. 1920s Twentieth-century designers revisit the agile classic with Deco details like channeled tufting and fluted backs. 1930s Fritz Hansen weaves modernism into the design, along with ultratextural materials like lambswool. 1950s Billy Baldwin seizes on the chair’s versatility and creates a more masculine design for gathering spaces. TODAY The pillow chair riffs on the layered cushions of Turkish ottomans and poufs while keeping to the classic armless form.…

a kitchen that works the crowd

1 MOHAIR BANQUETTE: “This corner is so comfortable, everyone gravitates here,” says Cavin-Winfrey, who framed the benches in walnut and covered them in mohair, which is “virtually indestructible.” 2 GLOBE LIGHTING: The custom fixture was re-created from one the designer spotted in Los Angeles and blends playful spheres with the room’s rectilinear configuration. “It’s like something from a different era.” 3 MARBLE WALLS: A white stone perimeter feels “new and clean” and creates a character-building contrast with the reclaimed walnut islands, “which feel like they’ve been there a hundred years.” 4 DOUBLE ISLANDS: “Older homes love symmetry,” and given the sheer volume of the space, double islands honor that sense of balance. One is outfitted with an ice machine, sink, and beverage drawer to double as an informal bar. 5 COFFERED CEILING: “The grid…

a room of her own

I FIND A CORNER, AND I START DRAWING.” In divine understatement, Argentinian illustrator Maia Bunge reveals the origins of this Empire-style salon captured in pen and ink (a commission by its owners, the Duquesne Watelet de la Vinelle family). A Parisian transplant, Bunge spent a week in Belgium, drawing among the rich furnishings of the 1702 townhouse. With added photography and historic research, her vision emerges as both documentary and idiosyncratic. It’s a delightful invitation to linger.

the black-tie powder room

AN ELEGANT LEADED-GLASS WINDOW, peskily off-center, made the powder room “the perfect geometric challenge.” Ralph Lauren silk wallpaper in buttoned-up pinstripes sets it straight and harmonizes with an equally dapper marble chevron floor. Antique parrot sconces and a Lucite-and-gold sink base bring additional hints of fun “without going over-the-top.” Best-Dressed List FOUR MORE FREESTANDING VANITIES THAT BRING POLISHED STYLE TO SMALL GUEST BATHS…
