American Modern – A New Book by Thomas O’Brien


Today I received a mysterious package in the mail.  To my surprise it was the “NEW” book by talented New York designer Thomas O’Brien.


I have been always been a big fan of designer, merchant, collector and tastemaker, Thomas O’Brien’s work.  One of my first interviews for the blog was with him.   I really appreciated his kindness and generosity with his time for my new blog.

Wow! What a wonderful surprise! I adore Thomas' work and had the good fortune of meeting him briefly at the High Point market in October. He is fiercely talented! I would love to get my hands on a copy of that book.

Hi there,

Is there any way you can find out where the navy velvet tufted chair on the front cover of the book is from? I've been internet searching for way too long and have come up with nothing.
