Patrick Thompson is an award winning interior designer residing in the suburbs of Detroit with his lovely wife, their energetic three-year-old son and their sweet dog. His design firm, Patrick Thompson Design, specializes in hospitality, commercial and retail spaces.

Patrick grew up in a family that celebrated art. Whether that meant making a cake or a Halloween costume, he was always encouraged to be aware of his surroundings and pay attention to details. There is no doubt his appreciation for art at such an early age paid off, because it shows in every little corner of his home.
