Chatham Groove

People ask interior designer Leslie Alan Degler where his office is, and he'll tell them it's aboard American Airlines. He's only half kidding: His firm, LAD Interiors, is often tapped for design work in Washington, DC, Miami, Los Angeles, Nantucket, as wll as right here in the Hudson Valley. "We're relentless. We've developed the art of hitting the ground, assembling a team, and creating a perfect residential environment that's true to that place," Degler says. "But the reason I can do all that and enjoy it is that I know I'm coming home to Chatham. I grew up in Texas, moved to Manhattan for 10 years, then we rented a house upstate and just knew 'this is it.' Just doing errands is a joy here—you don't have to stop and smell the roses, they hit you over the head. To be able to choose how you spend your hours and have it be amazing, that's success—and here, my life is in that sweet spot, that groove."
