Home furnishings and accessories manufacturer Studio A announced the company will partner with award-winning interior designer Roger Thomas on a new collection of home furnishings and accessories.
A leader in the hospitality and residential design industry and executive vice president of Wynn Design and Development, Thomas is well-known for his resort, hotel, casino and restaurant interiors, including the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
"Studio A is an exciting partnership, allowing me to express my love for innovative surfaces, classic silhouettes, and adventurous scale," Thomas said. "Their sensitive marriage of organic and synthetic, casual with formality, texture next to polish always results in a surprising originality and delightful elegance."
"It's a rare opportunity to partner with a talent like Roger," Studio A President and CEO David Gebhart said. "His masterful design aesthetic and breadth of knowledge, in both design and world-wide development, makes him a valued asset to the growth of Studio A. Roger will enhance the richness and character of the Studio A product line in a way which only Roger Thomas can do."
The licensing partnership with Studio A will expand the current offerings of The Roger Thomas Collection, which includes signature designs of mirrors, furniture, carpet, green sustainable lighting and outdoor furnishings. Rolling introductions of The Roger Thomas Collection for Studio A are planned to begin in mid-2013.
Thomas' award distinctions include election into the Hospitality Design Platinum Circle, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Network of Executive Women in Hospitality, "Designer of the Year" from the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show, the 2009 Design Icon distinction from the World Market Center in Las Vegas and the Jay Sarno Lifetime Achievement Award.
