Shown here, the only work that Thomas himself designed for the shop. “At first I did a club chair, I had one from the 1960s and I upholstered it in this reversed denim. The first fabric I was looking at had a little bit of a selvedge line but not enough to make the detail I was thinking of. I actually had on a pair of khakis that had a red overlock seam at the time, and I asked the woman I was working with if she could do that. It came out great; it probably could have been a disaster. It literally sold the first day I opened, so I made a really great reproduction of it and the sofa as well.”
