Tommy Hilfiger out, Restoration Hardware in? That's what a trustworthy Curbed Hamptons tipster has to say at least. Word has it that the furniture and accessories chain will set up shop at 69 Main Street in East Hampton, which was most recently inhabited by Tommy Hilfiger and those preppy duds he's so fond of. The retail space, which spans two floors, will be a nice break from a shopping scene dominated by antique and high-end clothing stores. Says the tipster: "We're all happy it's not more clothing. This is the kind of place people need out here—you can't do all your home shopping at the antiques stores, after all. It's a really smart idea." Hey, sometimes you just want your home goods to look like they're antique.
Here's a look at the exterior with Hilfiger as a tenant. Doesn't take too much imagination to picture Restoration Hardware taking over the space. Just change the sign!
And here's the interior. Yeah, the inside might require a little more imagination and some new finishes. But Restoration Hardware's pretty good at that, right?
