Thad Hayes:
Interior Designer
Man of Distinction

Clean, luxuriously appointed interiors are the hallmark of contemporary interior designer Thad Hayes. Since establishing his New York office in 1985, Thad Hayes has become much sought-after in the design world. The lauded designer, who counts Carl Jung’s Man and His Symbols among his influences, is known for his subtle use of color, a “reduced palette of materials” and deep knowledge of design history’s many styles.

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Thad graduated from the Louisiana State University School of Environmental Design. He practiced as a landscape architect in New York City and studied interior design at Parsons School of Design. Hayes went to work at Bray-Schaible Design in 1982 before establishing his own office, Thad Hayes, Inc.

Thad’s interiors bear a distinctive stamp, yet each tells its own fresh story. His projects are individually conceived and meticulously crafted. Hayes continues to be honored as one of "The AD 100" and was named one of the "Deans of Design" by Architectural Digest Magazine. His work is regularly featured in international design books and publications.

Most recently Thad authored his first design book, The Tailored Interior (forward by Evelyn Lauder), published by Rizzoli. The Tailored Interior includes twenty-two residences, ranging from a penthouse on Central Park, a Deco duplex on Park Avenue, a pied-à-terre at the Pierre Hotel, a Palm Beach retreat and a Hamptons hideaway.

His work has been frequently featured in ELLE Décor, House and Garden, New York and Architectural Digest.
