Our Founders
KATYA Thompson
Director of Design, RID 12197
Katya is born and raised in Eastern Europe where she studied Civil Engineering. When she moved to the United States, she was immediately drawn to the exciting world of Interior Design. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from the University of Oklahoma, she launched her career with several iconic fashion brands such as Fossil, BCBG, Guess, Marc Jacobs and others, where she designed retail storefronts in the US, Canada, London, Frankfurt, Singapore and other major hubs all over the world. Being a Registered Interior Designer led her to an opportunity with a Los Angeles based designer focusing on high-end residential design. While enjoying many aspects of architecture and engineering, Katya’s true calling is Interior Design. She says it allows her to express herself in a much more free and creative manner. Her Eastern European background and worldly travels allow her to incorporate a myriad of artistic elements into her work. Katya’s mission is to provide a design that is uniquely tailored to your aesthetic and lifestyle.
