This line of organic whitewash and natural weathered teak furniture evokes imagery of the white sand beaches and aqua waters of the famous French Caribbean island. The organic grooves of the teak are carefully filled with a aqua resin, which is cracked before applying, to achieve a unique quartz crystal effect. The complete outdoor furniture line includes side tables, coffee tables, sun loungers, benches, and day beds.

New York Design Hunting

Andrianna Shamaris had a straightforward request when hunting for an apartment in 2007: "I told the broker I wanted to look out at a tree." After months of touring apartments that overlooked other buildings, she finally found a fifteenth-floor two-bedroom with staggering views of Central Park. She had more trees to look at than she could count. Never mind that the prewar apartment was pretty run down -- what brokers term "estate" condition. Shamaris recalled an ultramodern apartment she had seen, designed by Brooklyn-based architect Thomas Leeser. She called him in to help. Her instructions were to create a clean, crisp space that didn't completely erase the apartment's original character. "I wanted this to be more of a restoration, not just a renovation," says Shamaris, who runs an eponymous store in Soho that specializes in earthy furniture and accessories from Southeast Asia. As a result, Leeser created a space that "has three directions." "It's a careful balance between the materiality of these Southeast Asian things that she collected, the classical atmosphere of the existing building, and a modern, minimal, clean look and functionality," says Leeser. He demolished walls to open the space up and modernised with amenities like a glass Valcucine kitchen and central air-conditioning. The design team reproduced moldings that were unsalvageable, reinstalled existing crystal doorknobs on new resin doors, and uncovered the original cast-iron radiators. Shamaris retiled the foyer, kitchen, and bathroom with custom concrete--"Why would I buy tiles when the ones I make are so much nicer?" she asks--and added bold texture by manufacturing her own full-height doors from weathered teak with a shell inlay.

ANDRIANNA SHAMARIS'S CHIC NEW SOUTHAMPTON BOUTIQUE Tastemaker and designer Andrianna Shamaris recently expanded her eponymous home-furnishings company with a shop in Southampton, New York, the second location after her base in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. The new space is overflowing with chic products that Shamaris conceived with the Hamptons in mind. Accessories such as baskets, woven bags, place mats, and pillows are displayed alongside jewelry embellished with antique shells. Also exclusive to the Hamptons outpost are two clothing lines: Good in Bed, comprising sleepwear, made of a lightweight handwoven Indian cotton, that can serve double duty as beach cover-ups; and Andrianna Shamaris, featuring one-of-a-kind dresses and shirts fashioned from antique ceremonial Balinese sarongs. A sizable selection of new designs and reimagined antique furniture is also on hand. Shamaris’s unique offerings include Colonial-era tables and chairs with shell inlays, sculptural weathered-teak pieces with aqua resin, and a collection of wood tables that have been burned to a black finish. Artifacts amassed from the designer’s travels to Southeast Asia include an impressive 15-foot-wide wood carving. Whether you’re in the market for vibrant artwork, a one-of-a-kind dining table, or simply a picture frame, this chic shop has you covered. FULL ARTICLE

A Miniminalist Loft in Greenwich Village

The Chipotle Mexican Grill executives Mark Crumpacker and Tim Wildin furnished their Greenwich Village kitchen with a vintage black granite Saarinen table bought through 1stdibs. The black leather and espresso-stained teak chairs are by Andrianna Shamaris; the Mater barstools are from Design Public. Mr. Wildin, left, and Mr.Crumpacker at the marble-top kitchen island designed by the architect Thaddeus Briner. To make the countertop look very thin, Mr. Briner had the edge notched with a rabbet. The Italian statuary marble of the counter extends onto the backsplash above the Gaggenau Vario cooktop and teppanyaki grill. Dimmable fluorescent lighting recessed in the ceiling around the periphery of the living area brightens the room, as does the new set of slipcovers ($4,940) on the Solo sectional sofa from B & B Italia. Colleagues visiting the apartment have noticed its resemblance to the Chipotle restaurants — particularly elements like the walnut architectural volume, which recalls the freestanding plywood forms at Chipotle. Both were built by Digifabshop, in Hudson, N.Y. The Eames Aluminum Management Chair that sits in Mr. Crumpacker's office alcove is from Design Within Reach ($1,889). The upholstered Maxalto Apta bed is from B & B Italia. The relatively small space it occupies, basically an alcove off the main living area, serves as the master bedroom. The 28-inch Hope pendant light from Luceplan ($2,450) in the master bathroom has curved polycarbonate Fresnel lenses that sparkle with light from a halogen or a compact fluorescent bulb.

WORLD BEATS "I love pieces that have a handcrafted, ethnic feel. A great source is Andrianna Shamaris, who is wonderfully gifted at retooling pieces that she gets around the world. She found the teak wheel I bought from her on Java, took it to Bali, and had an artisan inset mother-of-pearl chips into it. She also has place mats woven from vetiver root. The have an amazing scent."

Hamptons Cottages and Gardens

MIlite had almost all of the furniture custom-designed by Andrianna Shamaris, owner of eponymous stores in SoHo and Malibu (and next summer, the Hamptons). The basic idea, says Shamaris, was "to do less pieces, but the pieces we did were going to be huge." Again, wood--most of it kept natural and based on simple plank construction--is the featured material. Recycled teak, tamarind, ironwood, palm wood and mahoni, as well as sliced bamboo suspended in resin, add organic touches while softening the modern lines.
