Evolving and Embracing with O’Brien.

He’s at it again. Mr. Thomas O’Brien that is. If you are not a subscriber to Town & Country, this post is your invitation into interior designer Thomas O’Brien’s new book American Modern. T&C gathered some insight into the designers’ remarkable gift for carrying over design from classical to neoclassical, from Georgian to Federal, from early to mid-century modernism… all building blocks for his own sense of tradition. The common thread in O’Brien’s work is keeping things simple and refined with less ornamentation and less material.
