In 2004, Thom designed the “tents” for Olympus’ Fashion Week in New York City and has designed numerous tables at Elle Decor’s Dining by Design DIFFA Event.

Other highlights include a complete housing renovation for an Oprah viewer, two Kips Bay Designer Showhouses, and the House & Garden Hampton’s Showhouse.

Thom and his designs have been featured in an ever growing list of publications including The New York Times, Teen Vogue, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, Details, Out, US Weekly, People, The Advocate, The New York Post, Interior Design and House & Garden, to name a few.
