Thomas Pheasant’s interiors have a calm refinement and a quiet sophistication. Pheasant acknowledges the influence of French designers of the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. His furniture and custom rugs are grounded in classical architecture, but with a clean and modern sensibility. He creates “things that have kind of a familiar look but are still fresh,” Pheasant told Architectural Digest. Here is my pick of Pheasant’s 30 finest interiors.
