Artful Passageway

A mirror and gilded light add lustre to an otherwise simple space.

"In the hall leading to my den, two Willem de Kooning oil wash sketches on paper catch the light," says designer Thomas O'Brien in his new book, American Modern. "In the entry, more ink wash and quick
line figure drawings and a place to put my keys. The gilded beehive lamp has a twin in the master bedroom of one of my other projects."
