Alexa Hampton: Talent & Personality!

Alexa Hampton is personality and talent all-in one. Funny, down-to-earth, genuine, and relaxed, here she is demonstrating how uber comfortable her sofa design for Hickory Chair is! I mean really, how fun is that! A huge thank you to Suzette Delay, Showroom Manager of Henredon, for hosting a tea and giving us a chance to meet Alexa in an informal setting and learn more about her work and approach to design and...have so much fun at the same time.
Alexa with some of my favorite DC Designers - Sally Steponkus, Laura Stifel and Heather Safferstone of Sally Steponkus Interiors.
Her furniture collection for Hickory Chair is impeccable. Above is the Susannah side table.
Love the Perlini mirror.
Chris Set of Four Trays - each tray can be moved to where needed.
Jennifer Sergent, Marketing Director of the Washington Design Center, enjoying the comfort of the Breck Chair.
I couldn't resist posting this pic of Suzette's personal collection of tea pots.
If you haven't had a chance to pick-up Alexa's book yet, definitely put it on your list. Here's just a few images of her designs to enjoy.

What a fun day you must have had. I recently pick up the book and its really fabulous--so classic but with a nod to modern. I love the last bedroom image-so tranquil and chic! Have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

I met her at a book signing in NYC a few weeks ago. I got to the party a little early, luggage in hand and she could not have been nicer. She was wearing seven inch heels, too!!!

Beautiful post, Michele. Her book is on my Christmas list, but I may get it early. Alexa is so talented.
The images you have posted are gorgeous.
Have a nice day.

Great post - I didn't make that party at Henredon, but I did have the chance to visit with her in Hickory Chair's new HP digs and she is a mountain of personality and talent. Just delightful. And ditto the book - if you don't have it, get it.

Thanks for posting - I wasn't able to make the event, but looks like it was a fabulous time! Happy Thanksgiving!

I am loving the faux bamboo table in one of her rooms.

This was a terrific event made that special by the way she shared her life with the audience. Thanks for capturing that day. This has become my new favorite book.

I am so excited to meet or at least see Alexa in 2 weeks here in Westchester.

I keep hearing that she is so down to earth and fun - of course, we know she's super talented.

I'm sure this is a memory you'll cherish!

So interesting that her work is so tailored and her personality so outgoing and buoyant! Love the book - actually wrote a review of it recently.
