In the opening lines of his book, American Modern, O’Brien encapsulates his own design philosophy: “Practicality, industry, boldness, scale. Simplicity and sincerity. Innovation. These are the ingredients of American modern style.” Thomas O’Brien has made a name for himself in the world of interior design over the years as a true American tastemaker by making modernism feel comfortable, livable, and artfully casual. He sets himself apart in the world of contemporary interior and home decor design by creating designs that mix vintage and modern aesthetics by using classic styles with contemporary spins.
Thomas O’Brien’s ideal design is a contemporary home that juxtaposes antiques with modern lines while embodying American casualness with dashes of modern elegance. According to O’Brien, his design aesthetic focuses the notion of chic casualness. It is not surprising that O’Brien was formerly a designer for fellow American designer Ralph Lauren’s line of casually elegant home decor, Ralph Lauren Home. Over the years, he has established his own name in the interior design world. After collaborating with Target to create Thomas O’Brien Vintage Modern home decor line, Architectural Digest named his design firm on its list of top design studios in 2012. Cyrus Artisan Rugs is pleased to welcome Thomas O’Brien to the ranks of featured area rugs designers.
