The legendary textile company Jim Thompson's New York showroom is located in New York City's Decoration & Design Building. Bringing together Jim Thompson’s full range of fabrics, trims, and wallcoverings – including No.9 Thompson and Fox Linton. The 2200-square-foot, to-the-trade showroom offers designers the opportunity to shop the iconic brands side by side.
A passionate supporter of Thailand’s textile traditions, the late Jim Thompson, the company’s founder and namesake, is credited with introducing Thai silk to a global audience in the mid-twentieth century, encouraging its use in high end womenswear and home furnishings. One of Thompson’s earliest designer clients was the great American decorator, Billy Baldwin, who selected a vibrant yellow Jim Thompson silk for use as curtains in his much photographed Amster Yard apartment – just one of the many examples of the timelessness and versatility of Jim Thompson fabrics, which continue to be handwoven in Thailand using time honored methods.
As remarkable as the company's history may be, it continues to be forward-thinking while still respecting its past. With this new showroom at the D&D, excitement is building to see what comes next. Jim Thompson’s multi-line showroom strategy can also be seen in the Atlanta showroom, which carries other represented lines, including Michael Taylor Collections, Holly Hunt collections, Assemblage wallpapers and Hellman-Chang.
