Book Review: Thomas O’Brien (American Modern)

I was sent a copy of this extraordinary book (Abrams), and must say I was pleased beyond my own expectations. Let me first say that I love that the color of the book is gray. Perfect color for a modern space, and looks great on a credenza, and of course a coffee table. The images are just flawless, and a conversation piece even for those that don’t admire interior design. I have been a long time lover of Thomas O'Brien's work, and this book only extends my love for his craft. The book is done in different chapters of modern style. There is Traditional Modern, Urban Modern, Vintage Modern, and Casual Modern to name a few. Each capturing the true essence of its meaning. Enjoy.



“Design can be many things to many people, but to me, it has always been about traditional in modern life.” – Thomas O’Brien

I looove Tomas O'Brien and was ecstatic when he did a line for Target! Thanks for giving a sneak peek at this book. I gotta get my mitts on this one. I am such a sucker for packaging--I love the grey sleek cover, LOL!
