Celebrity Q&A with Thomas Pheasant

The Washington-based designer unveils his fourth collection for Baker Furniture

Celebrity Q&A with Thomas Pheasant Baker recently introduced its latest collection by Thomas Pheasant. Comprised of casegoods, upholstery, lighting and tabletop designs, it was motivated by an “evolution of classical ideals,” says Pheasant, “not replication. It’s about seeing something, letting it digest and creating something out of this idea that’s new.” Between a global publicity tour with Baker and interior design projects sending him to Moscow, Singapore, Paris and Las Vegas, Pheasant is on the road more than he’s at home. But as the design star told H&D, he’s a Washingtonian for good. See the new collection at Baker in Georgetown or  bakerfurniture.com.

What draws you to living in Washington?
I have a place in Paris, and love that city too. But I think Washington is a gem. It’s such a human city. I can’t imagine ever leaving.

How do you mix modern and antique furniture so easily?
I love the idea of a simple upholstered silhouette with a beautiful antique. It gives you a modern edge even though there’s a traditional baseline.

What is your favorite piece in the new collection?
The Athens chair, which was a feat of engineering. There’s a pair in my living room right now. 

Why is furniture design compelling to you?
Interiors come and go, but a furniture piece might end up 100 years from now in somebody’s home. How great is that? 

How do you decorate your home for the holidays?
One year, I upholstered my entire dining table in boxwood. But I don’t do the ‘decorator’ Christmas tree. For me, Christmas is more romantically connected with family. Our tree has ornaments from the past 30 years that we’ve collected, and I remember where every one came from.
