    Designer Stalking: Thomas Pheasant For Baker Furniture

    Uber-elegant Thomas Pheasant expanded his signature collection at Baker Furniture, frequently revealing cross-cultural fusions. In tufted leather, his Athens chair suggests a specific détente: Scandasian.

    Detail of gesso work on the St. Honoré chest for Baker. Pheasant repeated the detail on mirrors and tabletops, which can also be rendered in rather glitzy gold.

    To show Italian artisans exactly where he wanted the chunky crystals placed in his Blossom mirror for Baker, Thomas Pheasant used an appropriately old-school device: Post-it notes.

    While reacquainting with old friends, Laura Kirar also welcomed a new one in Barlow Tyrie, which launched the first edition in the designer's now-ongoing series of hand-woven, all-weather wicker furniture.



    Brown Jordan doesn't typically introduce new product in April, but the outdoor furniture specialist made an exception for former chief creative officer Richard Frinier, who unveiled the low-slung Sway series.

    A wild palette party ruled Nourison as the rug maker inaugurated a five-family assortment by Barclay Butera. The Medley collection's cowhide can be had in calm white, or classic black and brown, but more adventurous designers can try shades like hot turquoise, apple green or midnight blue.



    Interior Design Hall of Fame member David Easton built upon his bounty at Ferguson Copeland with the subtle-yet-spunky Sheridan chair.



    Also at Ferguson Copeland, Larry Laslo's Frye chair embodied the designer's knack for the flamboyant fusion of modern and classical sensibilities.
