Sean Scherer’s Kabinett & Kammer: Creating Authentic Interiors
Interior designer, artist, and collector Sean Scherer shares his secrets about applying the principles of two-dimensional art to home design.
Sean Scherer’s Kabinett & Kammer is equally a celebration and a guide to both collecting and showing how lively design can integrate disparate objects into beautifully layered ensembles. Scherer’s interiors feature vintage display cabinets housing discarded collections of whittled songbirds, stunning 19th-century maps and school teaching aids, ferns in cast-iron planters, and photomurals. The effect is a supercharged nod to American Gothic heightened by Scherer’s sophisticated palette and sense of proportion. Each photograph by William Abranowicz is a lesson on color and texture, focal points, and room size. Though styles fluctuate and tastes are unique, the principles of design are immutable, and good design is good design.
SEAN SCHERER'S paintings have been shown extensively in North America and Europe. He moved from New York to the Catskills in 2002 and opened his store, Kabinett & Kammer. He teaches art at SUNY Oneonta.
WILLIAM ABRANOWICZ'S William Abranowicz’s photographs are in collections worldwide and have appeared in nearly every major publication. His books include American Originals: Creative Interiors.
