Before being catapulted into the national spotlight, Thom established himself as a major player in the design industry through his day-to-day work. After earning his B.A. in design from the prestigious School of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University, he joined Parish-Hadley, one of the country's most distinguished interior design firms. He then worked for renowned designer Jeffrey Bilhuber before founding Thom Filicia, Inc., in 1998. He was named one of House & Garden's Top 50 Tastemakers, one of House Beautiful's Top 100 American Designers, and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Art Direction for his work on Queer Eye. Thom's far-ranging commissions have included everything from designing the tents for the Olympus Fashion Week, to the W Hotels in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Atlanta, and to the United States VIP Suite at the World's Fair in Aichi, Japan.
Thom is very entertaining so this book is easy to read and learn from.
It's a book that you can look at over and over and it is filled with great ideas, fab pictures and great insight into Thom's life and design philosophy.
Thom's rustic, modern, retro style is beautifully photographed throughout this satisfying book.
