Armoire Collection

Baccarat crystal and pyrex mix with a 19th-century Chinese scholar’s rock and vintage sawfish mandibles.

"On top of my living room armoire, another mixed collection," says designer Thomas O'Brien in his new book, American Modern. "The pieces have changed, but the same set of materials — glass and pottery, light and dark — always remains in this location."
