We do go on quite a bit here at WIJW about the super stylish Liz O’Brien, and it is not without good reason. She really does have one of the finest galleries here in New York City! We share her passion for the iconic masters of the 20th century, and do love the excitement, spark, and historical interest these pieces can add to a fine interior.
With a curator’s eye, O’Brien has launched an ultra-chic collection of furniture and accessories (O’brien calls them “keepers”), based on the designs of these iconic 20th century masters. “At the end of the day,” she says, “these are the pieces I want to have in my own home.” And it is indeed a well edited collection, Editions “…offers the sophisticated, design-orientated customer a refreshing alternative at exceptional value.”

Her marvelous gallery is filled with the most fabulous assortment of sofas and chairs, upholstered in richly colored and jewel-toned fabrics that are available for immediate gratification or to be ordered and produced in one’s own fabric. The Pamela and Jayne sofas (below) are based on models by the legendary firm Maison Jansen.

The Sister Pouf was one of Sister Parish’s favorites.

To be sure, I’ll be incorporating all of these gorgeous pieces into the interiors I’m creating for my clients. Do visit her stunning gallery to explore the full range here as well as the sublime collection of vintage pieces that O’Brien is famous for.
Me and stacks of the Albert Table (below). Based on a design by Albert Hadley, it’s a chic jewel of an object that can be used as a side table or grouped in multiples, fabric wrapped with a high gloss lacquer finish.
