about us

Founded in 1989 in Sag Harbor, New York, Sylvester & Co Modern General® is the brick-and-mortar home of Lynda Sylvester’s carefully designed and sourced life supplies.

Hailed as a “style maker” in a profile by The New York Times, Lynda’s “return to Main Street” philosophy has guided her creative process since the '90s and marks her continued dedication to small, independent manufacturers, makers, and artists.

our dreamy coffee

Our legendary Dreamy Coffee roast and early commitment to the cold brew method has made our coffee bar the talk of the Hamptons. We remain a 100% women owned and managed small business and believe in the idea and practice of dreaming daily, even if just for a moment, over an afternoon coffee.
