Designer Thomas O’Brien presents his philosophy on creating a home—the Practical & Beautiful life. Through a tour of his own homes and selected interiors, mixed with his products and favorite collections, Thomas shares how he has found and developed, and collected and chosen, the designs and objects that inspire him. He discusses the authentic character that makes design meaningful for each person, explaining the links between old and new things that form modern traditions. Please join Century Furniture in Suite 212 for a meet-and-greet and book signing of American Modern with Thomas O’Brien directly following the keynote. Light lunch and drinks to be served.
