Abrams’ American Modern is a collection of writings by designer and merchant Thomas O’Brien. O’Brian describes the design process of his chosen projects, including a downtown New York City loft, and a traditional Connecticut estate. He explains to readers not only what was at work to create a given style, but also how to impart those practices within their own homes. By delving into architectural authenticity, color relationships and correctness of scale, American Modern is an inspiring design volume that will redefine the way readers think about modern interiors.
By Thomas O'Brien with Lisa Light; Photographs by Laura Resen Hardcover with jacket. 240 pages with 200 color illustrations.
