Overlooking bucolic pastures sits Arthur Golabek's eponymous new boutique, a sun-kissed space where he has curated his own island of misfit toys with eclectic home accessories and unusual curiosities. From handpainted pansy plates by Marcel Guillot and vintage nautical brass planters to 19th century pine furniture pieces, this evergreen collection will always offer your eyes a new place to land.
"I love the art of collecting items, and I often fall in love with my finds," says Golabek. "Putting items together around the store to create vignettes is my favorite and brings me so much joy. The visual experience will be different for every visitor. It will change with time; it will evolve, as we all do."

Summer in the Hamptons is all about sun, surf, and fabulous events! And every spectacular event calls for beautiful flowers. Luckily, these four talented florists have you covered for your next clambake, graduation party, fundraiser, or birthday bash. If you are invited as a guest for a beach weekend, I recommend sending a flower arrangement before you arrive. Flowers and plants are the perfect hostess gift that can be enjoyed the moment they are received. Here are some of my favorite arrangements that I have seen in the Hamptons. I suggest keeping these local floral designers on speed dial this summer.
Arthur opened his shop on the first day of spring in 2021. Arthur brings together both of his passions under one roof: a flower design studio and a curation of antiques and home décor. Shopping is by appointment only to give a personalized experience.
