The IFDA Richmond Chapter is excited to welcome Thom Filicia as this year’s Day of Design featured speaker.  Day of Design will be held on Saturday, March 29, 2014.

Interior designer Thom Filicia is founder and Chief Creative Officer of New York City-based design firm, Thom Filicia, Inc. Since launching the acclaimed enterprise in 1998, Filicia’s New-American Style has earned him widespread acclaim and notable clients, including Tina Fey, Delta Air Lines, Jennifer Lopez, Peter Jennings, and others in the worlds of finance, sports, media, fashion and hospitality.

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,” House & Garden dubbed him an “International Taste Maker” and Elle Décor regaled him as an “A-List Designer.”

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 for the Straight Guy.  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.

He recently completed his third book for Clarkson Potter Publishers, titled American Beauty: Renovating & Decorating a Beloved Retreat.  After lunch, Thom will be available for a book-signing and books will be available for purchase on-site.  Proceeds for the book sales will be donated to our charitable partner, Caritas (www.caritasva.org).
