Hurricane candleholders easily imagined on a terrace overlooking the sea; a linen daybed begging to be tucked beneath a leafy palm tree; a golden-hued ceramic side table that would be ideal poolside—the latest collection from the designer Francis Sultana, currently on display at David Gill Galleries in the St. James’s neighborhood, is a welcome escape to the yet distant days of summer in a city still riddled with a winter chill.
