An enduring design trend that will always remain a classic, the Hamptons style is one of the strongest design movements in Perth today. The Hamptons design style combines relaxed sophistication with a fresh look, the appeal further enhanced with the use of White Gloss real timber lining boards from Glosswood.

Hamptons represents a collective term for the villages and hamlets that make up East Hampton and Southampton. A much-loved seaside getaway, Hamptons is recognised for its defining architecture that has spawned a whole design movement, not only enrapturing the world, but also inspiring a strong aesthetic movement in Western Australia.

The Hamptons style is all about comfort and elegance, realised through crisp white interiors, expansive spaces, pitched roofs and white timber panelling as well as furniture that is nostalgic in form, pared back in aesthetic and evocative in detail.


White Gloss white lining boards feature a natural grain showthrough and satin finish, perfect for adding the Hamptons look by creating a traditional timber feature or adding textural luxury with an honest timber material. The boards add sophistication to the indoors and can also be used undercover outdoors.

Key features include prefinished boards eliminating the need for sanding, painting, varnishing or tricky carpentry; V-joint tongue-and-groove profile allowing easy installation with a brad gun and glue; and matching trims and mouldings supplied.
