Hamptons tastemaker Tiina Laakkonen talks Picky Nicky through her favourite things

"Six years after opening Tiina the Store in Amagansett in the Hamptons, Tiina Laakkonen is adding an extra 100 sq m of retail space. ... Most retailers faced with a 66 per cent increase in floor space would order more merchandise to sell. But not Laakkonen. Instead she is relishing the opportunity to give her expertly curated stock more space."
