With the same energy that inspires his own love of travel and collecting, Tom and his creative team incorporate their clients' passions into their work, creating a relaxed glamour that is both personal and elegant. 
Tom Stringer Design Partners approaches the design process as a voyage of discovering the distinctive story of each client and home, connecting them with a sense of wonder and the communal spirit of their space. The firm's philosophy is client-centered and geographically specific, and brings decades of experience collaborating with top architects, contractors, landscapers and specialized tradespeople. Tom and his team apply a synergy of technology and creativity to shape spaces into special environments that are warm, inviting and visually engaging.

"There's no one-size-fits-all 'look' to our projects," says Tom, "Each is specifically tailored to a client. If we do our job well, there should be no trace of us - just a happy client."
Inducted into the Merchandise Mart Hall of Fame for Interior Design in 2015, Tom and his firm have been widely lauded for their classical, contemporary designs, including eighteen design excellence awards from the American Society of Interior Designers. House Beautiful magazine repeatedly names Tom Stringer Design Partners to its list of the nation's top interior design firms and the studio's work has been featured widely in other national publications. 

"Tom Stringer Design Partners runs as effectively and efficiently as any studio I've ever encountered. We at HH all love working for Tom and his team, and for his clients." - Holly Hunt
