O’Brien’s artistry includes meticulous craftsmanship, fine woodwork, luxurious materials and finishes along with painstaking detailing from Century renowned North Carolina workshops. This collection is considered the most autobiographical of O’Brien’s work to date, with a rare mix of modern and traditional, casual and elegant, erudite and practical, serene and dramatic. The designer said, “I want everything to have an essential American and modern elegance that brings these ideas forward, but I also want the design to be lasting.” These pieces are perfect investments for your home.
