Thomas Pheasant is an award-winning interior designer who has been recognized by Architectural Digest as one of the “Deans of American Design,” and in 2005 he was named the Andrew Martin International Designer of the Year. The work of influential, award-winning interior designer Thomas Pheasant is best described as “contemporary classical” and simply serene. Celebrated interior designer Thomas Pheasant is best known for his seamless melding of tradition and the contemporary. His spaces are fresh and of the age yet also enduringly timeless. Balancing classical elements, like recessed paneling, pilasters, crown moldings, and carved plaster garlands, Pheasant introduces modern details, sometimes including such flourishes and surprising complements as a scroll coffee table and a room screen of ribbed, translucent glass.
