Aero is where Thomas O’Brien formulated the “warm modern” look that first brought him to prominence, though his style is truly about finding modern and classic forms in many things: downtown’s industrial and artistic loft culture, the luxurious elegance of the prewar city uptown, and the essential simplicity of American country antiques and rural living.

Showcasing never-before-seen images of the store through the years, O’Brien’s first homes, Soho lofts, and Aero’s signature refurbished vintage furniture, this book will give readers a glimpse into the evolution of O’Brien’s acclaimed design style through never before seen images of homes, products and the store itself. Aero is a rare, rich portrait filled with unvarnished and charming honesty.
