Modern Love
Thomas Pheasant is on a roll. His first book, Simply Serene ($60, Rizzoli), was published last fall and is in its second printing. He’s already working on a second book about the art of furniture design, just as he’s introduced his own boutique collection. After creating top-selling lines for Baker since 2002, the Georgetown resident says, “It’s really me, a sketch pad and working with an artisan. I don’t have to worry about selling a million pieces.” His debut collection, on display at New York’s Newel gallery, includes tables, bookcases and chests made with cast bronze, mahogany and inlaid leather. His second grouping premieres in Paris this spring, with crystal as a major element. They’re available through Pheasant’s Georgetown studio, but move quickly: Only 10 of each signed piece will be made. 1029 33rd St. NW, 202.337.6596
