Philip Thomas Vanderford and Jason James Jones run a full-scale, boutique-style interior design firm, Studio Thomas James. They take a strictly hands-on approach and personally execute every step of the design process. The firm offers complete interior design capabilities for residences located in Dallas to Shanghai. Vanderford and Jones received a formal education in interior design and have extensive experience in construction—a background that gives clients a rare, in-depth perspective. To ensure every detail is perfected, they often design custom pieces for their projects, which ensures that scale and proportion are flawless. They enjoy walking clients through the design process to create spaces that are stylish, timeless, functional, and—most of all—reflect the ideals and desires of each individual they assist. The duo was proud to be a part of the inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Dallas this past fall.
