Modern Classic Interior Design Inspiration: Jillian O’Neill

So much incredibly lovely design radiating from Houston! I discovered Houston-based designer Jillian O’Neill’s sophisticated lovely work almost a decade ago when I encountered it in person within a striking foyer at Dream Home Chicago. Onward with Modern Classic Interior Design Inspiration!

Inspired by fashion and art, Jillian O’Neill’s design work is often described as unique, elegant, and modern yet timeless. While she has been creating furniture for her private clients for more than a decade, more recently the pieces became available to all. Beautifully crafted unique pieces echoing her overall design aesthetic are her signature, and O’Neill also offers the furniture (which can be customized) for purchase here.

Jillian O’Neill Collective

O’Neill launched Jillian O’Neill Collective with design team members Melissa Campbell, Jane Thorburn, and Kelly Barnett. Firstly, what is so impressive to me personally about the high end design team making spaces lovely in and around Houston, Chicago, and London, is how they project a rare humility and a grounded sensibility anchored firmly in the firm’s culture. Note the guiding principle the brand embraces, full of warmth and sincerity:

“Our favorite days are spent creating the story of your home and your life, one room at a time. How do you want to spend your mornings? Where do you want to create a retreat for quiet time? How do you envision coming together with family and friends? What is your passion..Is it cooking, is it reading, is it music? These details weave into the story of your life. We are honored to help you tell it.”

A Refreshing Focus

Secondly, you cannot miss the integrity and sense of practicality at the heart of what the Collective does. It is indeed refreshing to see them strive to demystify the interior design process. After all, when it is a client’s personal energy and authentic story which energizes the design and streamlines the focus? Well, give me a camp of creatives like that any day who are crafting interiors with a collaborative, gracious spirit over a firm singly creating complex dream world environments reflective mainly of the designers’ fantasies.

Thirdly, it is apparent these designers are truly enjoying the process!

My Favorite Piece in the Collection

Jillian O’Neill told Dering Hall: “This chair came from the desire for a chair with a sleek profile, but one that would work well within both modern and traditional spaces.​ ​I found that I was regularly drawing and designing certain “ideal” pieces, staples I was consistently searching for. The chair’s final iteration came after more than a year of sketching, which is the longest I’ve ever worked on a piece. After I drew the metal arm running underneath the chair, I knew it was ready for production. That really finalized my initial vision.”

Caden Chair

Our refined Caden Lounge Chair adds elegance to any space. Set two in front of a fireplace, another pair at the end of your bed, or they'll sit perfectly with your living room sofa. Shown here in Medium French Finish Walnut, Darkened Brass and Wool, Hawk or Graphite.

Artwork

The beautiful framed watercolor art by Kelly Barnett offered by Jillian O’Neill Collective may also capture your imagination. With evocative titles from her “Formations” series such as “Living Water” and “I Am,” I am sure you are not surprised such meditative work brought this blogger both pause and pleasure.

Original Watercolor from the Formations series About the Artist: Kelly Barnett has been painting her entire life. Over time, her art has become increasingly focused on process, coupling intention with surprise to create outcomes that reflect her meditative work state and, hopefully, share that peace and hope with others. Kelly’s art is primarily inspired by her travels. The beauty and intricacy of Creation is foundational in all of her work.
