Idea House Grand Living Room
The Hamptons Cottages & Gardens 2006 Idea House comprises a 6,200-square-foot home, reminiscent of the Shingle and Arts-and-Crafts styles of the 1880s through the 1910s and displayed new ideas in interior design, outdoor living, and home technologies.

Ms. Gifford joined with award-winning interior designer, Betty Wasserman, reprising their collaboration that earned best-in-show accolades for the Tribeca Townhouse, as seen in Interior Design Magazine, September 2005. For Idea House three modern Urchins were showcased in a single centerpiece dropping from the ceiling like a jewel, while two additional free-standing fixtyures sat on a pedestal of wenge, a naturally lustrous dark wood from Africa.
