Starting this month, more than 100 armchairs, sofas, poufs, tables, and parasol umbrellas by Italian designer Paola Lenti’s namesake furniture brand are going on view at East Hampton’s LongHouse Reserve, which will host an exhibition special preview on Friday, June 14.

The contemporary design furnishings inspired by art, nature and the wonder of outdoor living will be displayed in five areas throughout the 16-acre gardens, according to LongHouse.

“LongHouse is a union of art and nature, with a mission to inspire living with art in all forms. Our collaboration with Paola Lenti is a true fulfillment of that mission,” LongHouse Director Carrie Rebora Barratt said. “Paola Lenti is a master of color who took inspiration from LongHouse’s habitat to curate the palette for the exhibition. The spaces will offer LongHouse visitors very special respite from the summer sun.”

“My sister Anna Lenti and I had the honor and pleasure, a few years ago, of meeting [LongHouse Founder] Jack Lenor Larsen,” Lenti said. “A sincere understanding immediately formed between us, based on a common vision of nature, its importance for humans, the benefit derived from enjoying art in all its expressions, and the role of craftsmanship as a privileged means to give soul to things. For this place, LongHouse, Larsen has intuited to be the ideal place to insert artworks accessible to everyone. We have selected products that could establish a harmonious and positive dialogue with nature and art.”

The preview offers the opportunity to explore the garden and enjoy the exhibition, special drinks and nibbles. The event will run from 5 to 8 p.m. Ticket proceeds support LongHouse’s programs in art, design, nature and wellness. Tickets are $200, available at longhouse.org. LongHouse Reserve is located at 133 Hands Creek Road, East Hampton.
