Founder & President Tom's sophisticated professional style springs from the intersection of his formal training in classical architecture and his passion for exotic travel. Tom is an inveterate traveler and collector. Each year, he visits a new corner of the earth for adventure and inspiration, and in each instance, he filters his experiences through the prism of design. His photo albums reveal his rich sightings like the patterned back of a Spotted Eagle Ray in Fiji, a ballet troupe of sharks circling slowly overhead in the Tuamotus and the tangle of color on a rag trader's cart in Tangiers. Tom's travel experiences are embedded in his artistic senses. In this way in his design practice, he too bridges styles and cultures, enriching his projects with unexpected detail. The same rigorous planning, enthusiasm and joy of discovery Tom brings to his travels he brings to the comfortably glamorous homes he creates-starting with his own. The 19th century Lincoln Park greystone Tom shares with his partner, Scott, and their American Eskimo dog, Tucker, is filled with intriguing Oceanic and African objects along with a breezy mix of modern and antique furnishings. It's also always filled with friends. Tom renovated his house to create an airy floor plan that entices guests to wander room to room or onto a well-appointed garden terrace. Tom holds a Bachelor's Degree in design from the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Arizona State University. "Tom is an unusual blend in this business as he is a strong businessman in addition to being an unusually creative designer."

LIVING ROOM: TOM STRINGER OF TOM STRINGER DESIGN PARTNERS
For the design of the living room, Stringer envisioned how the space might look after three of his design idols met for cocktails. "I imagined that Albert Hadley and Billy Baldwin convinced Sister Parish to let them freshen up her living room," Stringer explains. "We had a weird bump that we had to accommodate in the wall, so we created harmony by adding a bookcase and a built-in ledge behind the sofa that the screen sits on," Stringer says.
