Hillary Thomas Designs represents a lifetime of compulsive obsession with design. From a major remodel to an overlooked objet d’art, we delight in bringing unexpected joy to life through great, attainable design.
It all starts with Hillary, the 8-year old little girl who stayed up well past her bedtime rearranging the family living room. This behavior followed her to college – within the first 24 hours of being on campus, she had completely decked and color-coordinated her dorm room (if we only had a picture of that…..).
This obsession with design finally found a home in Hillary Thomas Designs, a company she co-founded in 2010 with Clara Hendon, who was a frequent visitor to the aforementioned dorm room! Growing out of an LA-based traditional interior design business, Hillary Thomas Designs is an interior design, product and lifestyle firm that embodies a “Vintage Chic” style. This style is rooted in the 1950s which found a group of curious people with means and a fixation with style – the ‘Jetsetters’ – engaging new cultures like never before. They brought a deep respect for traditional manners and mores, which became infused with a layered, worldly, and sophisticated style. This juxtaposition of old and new brought about an entirely new design aesthetic and lifestyle that we just can’t get enough of.
