“In this book, Sean Scherer shows us all how to create unique sanctuaries for ourselves.... Imaginative spaces that are authentic and honest, designed to be lived in and loved.”

 Anderson Cooper (from his foreword) 

Kabinett & Kammer is equally a celebration and a practical guide to both collecting and showing how lively design can integrate disparate objects from the past into beautifully layered ensembles. Sean Scherer's interiors feature vintage display cabinets housing discarded collections of whittled songbirds, a plethora of stunning 19th-century maps and school teaching aids, semi-tropical ferns in cast-iron planters, mysterious industrial apparatuses displayed against eye-catching col­ors, and photomurals. The effect is a supercharged nod to American Gothic heightened by Scherer's sophisticated palette and sense of proportion. His interior language speaks with a calm authority coupled with a zest for life, offering invaluable lessons for composing signature, comfortable interiors. 

Each photograph by leading photographer William Abranowicz is a masterclass on such topics as 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 curates a beguiling assemblage. . . . Expect anything from visual teaching aids to scientific ephemera."
