See It Again: Tom Scheerer
Photography above by Christopher Baker, as seen in House Beautiful, February, 2007
A reader was searching for this image of a Tom Scheerer interior with an octagonal center table skirted in shrimp Oxford cloth from Bailey & Griffin. So, here it is again. Don't you love how Scheerer trimmed the shrimp fabric? Very crisp. The walls are covered with the designer's "Lyford Trellis," for Quadrille, in brown.
I may post other tears from this spread on Friday. In the meantime, did anyone save the December Elle Decor, below? A Scheerer-designed Brooklyn townhouse is on the cover.
I think I have some tear sheets from this issue filed away in a box -- I know I saved an image of Sheerer's ethereal silver-leaf four-poster bed. But a reader is curious about a small piece that appeared in the living room: an open woven "stool/basket," or maybe sculpture, placed beneath a side table. The piece is viewable on Scheerer's site under Portfolio, Brooklyn Townhouse. If you have any information on this item, the reader will be grateful to learn more.
