Thomas Pheasant: Simply Serene

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. Unafraid of combining pieces from various traditions, he achieves a sense of harmony and balance. This lavish offering of his work gives the reader a sensible, artful approach to interior design, presenting models of great aesthetic subtlety and beauty. Never a strict by-the-book traditionalist, Pheasant responds to and sees in classicism its rational order, its quietude, its serenity. Thomas Pheasant – Simply Serene, was published by Rizzoli Books and  is a book that everyone will want to include in their decor library. A special book for a special…
