Thomas O'Brien Elle Decor William Waldron

The 1940’s French-inspired design of the Hallings Secretary by Thomas O’Brien for Hickory Chair Co. anchors the lofty white living space of the designer’s Manhattan home. Black wrought iron window mullions and drapery hardware, in addition to the dark wood of the secretary’s interior, provide subtle contrast in the room’s interplay of black and white.
