About Glenn Gissler

New York, NY

B9f593aa 6be8 44a1 b0e7 9d1207518774 gdphotog.ggissler.d

Trained as an architect and practicing as an interior designer, Glenn Gissler is known for his understated, elegant sensibility, paying particular attention to architectural detail and craftsmanship. He artfully combines traditional and contemporary furnishings in rooms that are comfortable, polished and visually striking without seeming “decorated.”

Glenn’s design practice is the culmination of lifelong interests in 20th century art, literature, fashion, historic preservation, and architectural history. These interests are manifested in work that is stylistically diverse, but beautifully crafted and integrated into the architecture of the space.




Ten Questions

What’s your go-to classic color choice?
The pallet of the earth.
Do you have a favorite restaurant (for the design and the food, of course)?
Four Seasons - modern heaven Il Buco - Umbrian cuisine in a rustic environment
What’s your favorite small museum in the world?
I am not sure I can select only one! I have deep, and enduring relationship with the RISD Museum - a modest-scaled museum with an outstanding collection started in the 19th century. I love 101 Sporing Street - a house museum originally the home of the American sculptor Donald Judd. I will leave it at two lest I get carried away!
How do you usually start your weekend?
If I am in the city I love to go to a museum on a Friday night - many are open late - it is a great release and inspiration abounds! Alternatively, I am in my Jeep driving to my Greek Revival farmhouse in Connecticut for a weekend of fine eating, hanging with friends and working on my house and garden. Bliss and satisfaction abounds
Design a garden: groomed or freestyle?
Groomed? or Freestyle? I have to choose one?! I would definitely combine the two with the goal to have it look effortless and appropriate.
