    Developed over several years in a close creative
    partnership, the Thomas O’Brien Collection marks
    an ambitious step forward for both designer and
    company, in the breadth of the offering as well as
    the defining of a new chapter of American Modern
    style for the interior design marketplace.
    The collection is presented as a diverse grouping of room essentials and one-of-a-kind style pieces, many inspired by O’Brien’s own travels and personal storehouse of modern and European antiques. Original upholstery shapes alone number in the dozens, highlighting the dedicated craftsmanship, innovation, and production capability coming from Century’s North Carolina workshops.

    Lighting and industrial design are twin passions
    for Thomas O’Brien that find expression in his
    prolific collaboration with Visual Comfort & Co.
    Twice-yearly introductions encompass architectural
    lights and a range of original chandeliers as well as
    table and floor lamps, all in a family of exceptional
    hand-crafted finishes. In recent seasons O’Brien has
    worked with luxurious materials such as rock crystal
    and delicate blown glass in updated modern forms.
    A number of specialty lamps designed each year
    become collector’s editions. Select profiles are
    available at lighting centers nationwide and
    through Circa Lighting; the complete collection
    may be surveyed at Aero.

    O’Brien is the first brand designer to create
    a tabletop collection for Reed & Barton, one of

    in scope and includes dinnerware, glassware and
    crystal, stainless steel flatware, serving items, and
    a full range of gifts and decorative accessories.
    New introductions are added frequently. Recently
    O’Brien has also contributed supplemental gift and
    barware designs to the Reed & Barton label.

    O’Brien was the first brand designer to be
    invited to create a signature collection for leading carpet merchant Safavieh. His line of hand-knotted carpets is exclusively produced in Nepal of finest handspun Tibetan wool and genuine silk, with
    recent introductions adding more transitional
    carpets in natural undyed wool. Designs share a patterned, vintage inflection, in a range of unusual textile-based motifs, abstract Moroccan geometrics, Chippendale-inspired fretworks, and lavish freeform florals. All are available through Safavieh and other fine carpet showrooms nationwide, and at Aero.

  • groundworks

    Groundworks, a division of Lee Jofa, introduced
    Thomas O’Brien’s first classically-inspired fabric
    collection in 2003. Textiles are a favorite O’Brien
    artifact and many of his designs for Groundworks
    have originated in his personal library of vintage
    fabrics and historical patternwork. O’Brien has since
    delivered a second, bold collection including
    several modernist prints, and following that, a large
    trimmings group. His latest introduction reinvents
    luxurious velvets and silks for modern, understated
    use, in a range of signature, rich neutrals and earth
    tones. All may be ordered through Lee Jofa,
    Aero, or individual designers.

  • HickoryChair

    O’Brien has been creating fine furniture since
    1999 for North Carolina-based Hickory Chair. His
    collections span traditional and modern styles
    and continue to expand with custom finishes and
    specialized detailing as part of Hickory Chair’s
    highly crafted made-to-order offering. From the
    warm modern trademark of his debut to the more
    neoclassical and later modernist influences of
    successive collections, O’Brien’s furniture always
    celebrates history and can be used in all types
    of cross-combinations as well as with antiques.
    Recent introductions synthesize elegant furniture
    profiles from favorite French Deco and Regency
    design periods into pieces with usable
    scale and comfort for today.

    fashion brand for the home. This large offering has
    covered virtually all home categories in the store,
    from bedding to dishes, carpets, lighting, furniture,
    stationery, and holiday decor. O’Brien’s popular
    towels have routinely been best sellers, in
    remarkable quality cotton and a variety of warm
    neutral colors. Across this product range, O’Brien
    has maintained his familiar style rooted in
    modernism, softened by traditional details and
    an easy array of reinvented vintage patterns.
