Author Bryan O'Sullivan and Samuel Cochran, Foreword by Annabelle Selldorf
New York and London–based interior designer Bryan O’Sullivan creates spaces that mix modern and historical influences, resulting in luxuriously chic interiors that are both glamourous and welcoming. This book, the designer’s first, showcases the groundbreaking work of a remarkable and rising talent.
Old-school Hollywood glamour with a contemporary touch is the hallmark of interior designer Bryan O’Sullivan’s repertoire, on full display in his commissions for the Red Room at the Connaught Hotel, the much-admired Berkeley Bar & Terrace, and the art deco Painter’s Room at Claridges, all some of London’s most fabulous and plush spaces. With expertise in both architecture and interiors, O’Sullivan’s broader vision is reflected as well in selected residential projects, which range from a family house for a prominent restaurateur, a Fifth Avenue apartment in New York, and a historic early 1900s hôtel particulier in Paris’s 16th arrondissement.
O’Sullivan mines history for inspiration, resulting in a look that could be described as pared-back luxe. The key is in the mix, blending classical proportions with contemporary elements, re-covering vintage or antique furniture in modern fabrics, creating warmth and intimacy within generous spaces, and always achieving very chic, stylishly comfortable, livable spaces.
