Tom Stringer: Modern Interior Design from Chicago

Tom Stringer has a degree from the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Arizona State University. He states that the source of his inspiration is water, which flows through his life as an individual and as a designer, transporting him to freedom, and showing him a different way of seeing the world.

According to Stringer, a home should be the backdrop for a well-lived life with friends and family, so that’s the philosophy his design follows.
