The legendary Sharone Einhorn & Honey Wolters invented "shabby chic," more years ago than I choose to remember, in a wonderful farmhouse in Sagaponack. With their store, Ruby Beets, they created a new venacular in decorating. It was fresh, inventive & young. The sense was that anything worked and everything seemed accessible. With everything painted ecru or ivory and the upholstered antique pieces covered in the same palette,you couldn't go wrong! Each room was an enchanting vignette that you wanted to move into immediately! Their style became the "must have" in interior design for a decade! But, as creative thinkers know, you need to make a change.....and after a number of years they took a breather!!!
Several years ago they hung a magical "ruby beet" over the door of a funky store in Sag Harbor and a new Ruby Beets was born!!! Combing the unique decorative antiques they are known for, with contemporary furniture, accessories, art and photography they have created a modern, contemporary version of their sensability. It is fabulous!
On my last visit, hanging from the ceiling was this fabulous lucite ballroom chair!!! It is incredible and makes the ghost chair look like an aged ghost!! A must have......Go see for yourself!!!
