THE NORTH FORK HAS A BRAND NEW HOME FURNISHINGS STORE and it’s a winner. Material Objects in Jamesport opened Labor Day weekend in a converted 1870 farmhouse, plus a newly constructed barn, above, after several years in the making.


The look is predominantly rustic and trendily distressed. Items both antique and new are sourced from South America, Europe, and the Far East. High-end upholstered pieces, oversized dining tables and chandeliers, wire work and weather vanes, bee skeps and signage from local farms, picket fence gates hung as wall decoration, cupboards and mirrors — in short, all one needs to furnish a house in the country.


Sherwood House Vineyards of Mattituck is set to open a tasting room as part of the same compound later this fall.


Material Objects is at 1291 Main Road in Jamesport, a few miles east of Riverhead. It’s open 7 days from 10-6. No website yet; phone 917 687 0063.
