Introducing the new Bangkok showroom
This March Jim Thompson Home Furnishings celebrated the completion of the months-long renovation of our Bangkok Fabric Showroom.
An incredible transformation from PHTAA Living Design Studio now sees the third and fourth floors open plan, brimming with natural light, and walls adorned with a cool sculpturesque marble. Renowned interior designer, Vichada (Dao) Sikatalin, perfectly captured the essence of Jim Thompson’s identity and unique style by creating five rooms on the third floor, all showcasing Jim Thompson fabrics in situation. Entitled, ‘Opulent Vogue’; ‘Hamptons Dynasty’; ‘Midnight Orient Odyssey’; Forbidden Colours’; and ‘Tropical Colonial’, each space has its own theme and colour scheme. The room sets incorporate fabrics solely from Jim Thompson collections, from the classics to ‘Leo de Janeiro’, the latest offering, designed by Creative Director Ou Baholyodhin.
PHTAA created an art space on the third floor, which already houses the first exhibition, “Renaissance” designed by Sarin Tgamol. Sarin worked with natural materials to create a tree sculpture that plays on the concept of rebirth. The tree is filled with a selection of exotic birds, made solely from recycled Jim Thompson fabric.
The fourth floor is dedicated to our No.9 Thompson, Fox Linton and Studio B lines, but also features fabrics and wallcoverings from European brands, Elitis and Gaston y Daniela.
To celebrate this renovation Jim Thompson hosted a party at the showroom, which was attended by our directors; designers and the rest of the home furnishings team; the Thai press; European designers; as well as many friends of the brand. Delicious canapés were prepared by the talented Chef Num from Samuay & Sons, and the champagne flowed throughout the evening. Thank you to all those in attendance, who made the event an overwhelming success.
