When a project completed by an interior designer still holds up after a quarter of a century, you know you’re looking at a master artisan. Recently, Kew tenant Glenn Gissler was featured on Dering Hall’s website for an interior he did 25 years ago—an interior that looks as fresh and timeless today as when he completed it.
The featured interior was of a home in Westchester County, NY. Gissler successfully combined traditional and modern furnishings with vintage and early American pieces to create a look that is truly timeless. The clients were passionate art collectors, and Gissler interwove this aspect into his design as well, with works by artists such as Richard Serra, Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg and Jean Dubuffet—and even an etching by Matisse.
Gissler, who keeps his offices at 1123 Broadway, holds degrees in Architecture and Fine Arts, and he draws from a diverse palette of inspiration ranging from the vintage to the contemporary—and even exotic—to evoke visual appeal while reflecting his clients’ aesthetic. His architectural background even enables him to design custom furniture pieces for specific projects and functions. His work has also been recognized on a national scale, as he has been named among the “100 Top Designers” in House Beautiful and New York Magazine.
Glenn Gissler is just one of several highly talented designers with offices at 1123 and 1133 Broadway, and the quality of their work has shaped NoMad into a designer destination in recent years.
We congratulate Glenn for his achievements and his recognition by Dering Hall, which is clearly well-deserved.
