Thomas O’Brien

One of our favorite designers is Thomas O’Brien. He has a clean, masculine style that combines modern and classic styles into a fresh look that appeals to men and women. He has a line of housewares at Target called Vintage Modern as well as very high-end tableware and select furniture at Bloomingdale’s, as well as collections for Hickory Chair, Waterworks, Visual Comfort, and finally his uber-store, Aero, in Soho, NYC. Here is a link to a pdf download about Aero.

Here is an interview I found on youtube:



The video appears to be a few years old, as the store looks like the previous location and the apartment with the glass dome was completed some years ago. Here is a link to a pdf from his website that shows you the entire stunning apartment. (About a 1mb download) The wood paneled, circular room is the one with the dome. I would kill for that awesome oak pool table with taupe felt!

Yup, looks like your guys' style. Have you been to that store in NYC?

Yes, I went in 2005 while on a business trip. Beautiful store, but not cheap. I did get a good deal on a bed sheet and pillowcases that were on sale though!
