World-renowned interior designer and television personality, Thom Filicia is the founder and principal of the New York City-based design firm, Thom Filicia, Inc. Since launching Thom Filicia Inc. in 1998, Thom has earned widespread acclaim and currently has a design show on Bravo TV with Carson Kressley called 'Get a Room with Carson and Thom.'
Some of Thom’s notable clients include Tina Fey, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Delta Air Lines, Grace Bay Club, Jennifer Lopez, W Hotels and others in the worlds of finance, sports, media, fashion and hospitality. Filicia is universally known for his ability to create stunning modern, yet classic interiors that retain an inviting aesthetic which reflects the individuality of his clients. Filicia’s unmistakable design sensibility has earned him countless accolades from the design world, including being named by House Beautiful as one of their “Top 100 Designers,” and House & Garden dubbed him an “International Taste Maker” along with Elle Décor who regaled him as an “A-List Designer.” Additionally, Filicia has been featured in The New York Times, Architectural Digest, The Wall Street Journal, People, In Style, Vogue Home, O and many other national and international publications.
Filicia's recognition expanded beyond the design world when he was cast as the interior design expert in the ratings juggernaut and Emmy-Award winning hit show 'Queer Eye.' Filicia was assigned the program's most demanding segment—transforming the home of design-challenged men. Filicia’s camera-friendly personality and design acumen garnered him a huge following and led to numerous TV appearances, including “The Oprah Winfrey Show," “Good Morning America,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The View,” “Rachael Ray,” “The Today Show,” “Ellen,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and many more. Filicia has also hosted several successful shows for the Style Network, including “Dress My Nest” and “Tacky House” and has been featured talent on the HGTV Network. Filicia’s newest television endeavor paired him with another original “Queer Eye” cast member, Carson Kressley, and has quickly become one of America’s favorite design shows. The beautiful room makeovers coupled with the hysterically funny and endearing dynamic between the two all add to the immense popularity of the show.
The celebrated designer is also the author of "Thom Filicia Style," published in 2008 by Atria/Simon & Schuster, and is a contributing author of the best-seller “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy: The Fab 5 Guide To Living Better.” His third book, titled “American Beauty: Renovating & Decorating a Beloved Retreat,” was published by Clarkson Potter Publishers in 2012. Furthermore, Filicia is the creative mind and driving force behind the Thom Filicia Home Collection, which includes furniture, rugs, textiles, artwork, curtain hardware, trimmings, wallcovering, bedding, pillows and broadloom for the retail and hospitality markets. He also operates a to-the-trade showroom, called Sedgwick & Brattle, in the New York Design Center. Sedgwick & Brattle features products from the Thom Filicia Home Collection, a curated collection of items from around the world, as well as one-of-a-kind vintage and antique pieces.
