  • There's one word for the renovation at Jim Thompson's Surawong showroom: STUNNING

Leading Thai silk company Jim Thompson’s old teakwood-clad Surawong showroom is no longer just for tourists after elephant print ties to take back home.

An awesome renovation from PHTAA Living Design Studio sees its third and fourth floors decked out in cool marble tones contrasted with the brand’s exotic fabric lines, without an orange teak panel in sight.

Spotlighted is the beautiful No. 9 Thompson line of fabrics, designed by British designer Richard Smith.

A full different ranges by Smith see a glorious array of technicolor prints exhibited as scatter cushions, sofas, foot stalls and curtains. The space itself however only sells fabrics by the sq meter.

Our pick is the delicate Chinoiserie styling of Jim Thompson's new Leo De Janeiro linen—beautiful, but not cheap. One sq meter of fabric starts at B2,950.

The shop’s bottom two floors remain the same, selling Jim Thompson accessories like scarves, clubby neck-ties and pillow cases.

This latest development from Jim Thompson comes as the brand introduces a series of upgrades. The new Bombyx by Jim Thompson restaurant at Siam Paragon, which debuts a similar style of moody-yet-luxurious prints.

9 Surawong Rd., 02-632-8100. BTS Sala Daeng.
