One of his most memorable projects was an eco-friendly apartment for Riverhouse, Manhattan's first premium (LEED certified) "green" luxury condo, which received a merit award by Interior Design Magazine for "Best Eco-Residential Design Interior."

Thom launched his first design book, "Thom Filicia Style" (Atria/Simon & Schuster) in October 2008. The bookdeconstructs Thom's design philosophy, and gives readers simple step-by-step direction on how to make their houses reflect their inner selves.

An environmentally conscious designer for the past 10 years, Thom received a Bachelor of Interior Design at Syracuse University's School of Art and Design and has worked at the most venerable firms in NYC including Parish-Hadley, Robert Metzger and Jeffrey Bilhuber. He was a contributing author to The New York Times' best selling book, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: The Fab 5's Guide to Looking Better, Cooking Better, Dressing Better, Behaving Better, and Living Better, has appeared in multiple national advertising campaigns and partnered with some of the world's most prestigious brands, including American Express, Audi, Amana, Kimberly Clark, Xerox and Electrolux.
