Tommy Smythe
Co-Founder at TOM


Sunday, Jan 22 (3 PM- 4PM)

Tommy’s contagious enthusiasm and fun loving approach to decor and renovating have made him an international design world favourite. A career spanning more than 25 years has left few stones unturned in getting the message of meaningful, practical and beautiful design to his many followers through television, print media, social media and popular speaking engagements. Tommy is known for his warm and personal mixture of fine art, vintage, antique and modern furnishings pulled together with a cutting edge colour sense.

In February of 2020, along with long-time collaborators Lindsay Mens and Kate Stuart, Tommy established TOM, a full service design collective focusing on residential and commercial projects in Canada, the U.S. and abroad.

“I work closely with clients to create a feeling of timeless elegance and gracious living in soulful environments. Rooms should feel as though the furniture and art within were collected over time and with a sense of personal history.”

“Impatience is the enemy of good design.”
