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. 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 William Abranowicz is a lesson on color and texture, focal points, and room size. With a foreword by Anderson Cooper, whose house Scherer helped design, Kabinett & Kammer demonstrates that though styles fluctuate and tastes are unique, the principles of design are immutable, and good design is good design.
