Thomas Pheasant Named Design Icon
November 23, 2015,
LAS VEGAS-Interior designer Thomas Pheasant will be honored as the 2016 Design Icon during Las Vegas Market in January.
The centerpiece of programming at Las Vegas Winter Market, the Design Icon Award honors an interior designer who has made a significant contribution to the industry throughout his or her career. “Thomas Pheasant’s work has made an indelible imprint on interior design that has stood the test of time,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers. “He has the uncanny ability to wed classic style with a modern feel that never feels stilted—it’s always fresh and soothing—with an aesthetic that feels luxurious yet comfortable. He’s one-of-a-kind, and we are thrilled to have him as this year’s Design Icon honoree.”
Pheasant is known for his look of luxurious understatement, with interiors that are at the same time modern and traditional. Current projects include Blair House—the President’s Guest House on Pennsylvania Avenue across from the White House, a redesign of Starwood’s Crescent Hotel in Dallas, a luxury resort in Middleburg Virginia, along with private residences in New York, Paris, Moscow and Los Angeles.
“I am honored to be selected as the Design Icon for 2016 and to join the ranks of the amazing designers before me,” Pheasant said. “It is so rewarding to be recognized and feel that my work has contributed to the evolution of American design.”
The 2016 Design Icon presentation will take place on Jan. 26 at 10 a.m. in the WorldView Room, 16th floor, Building B. The event will include a presentation by Thomas Pheasant, followed by a Q&A session with Maricich. Immediately following the Design Icon presentation will be a signing of Pheasant’s latest book, “Simply Serene: The New Luxury for Modern Interiors.”
