I want to thank John Thompson for his professionalism, his patience and his amazing ability to listen and reflect back to me through hand rendered drawings, our visions. He encouraged me to find my own design voice. Never once did I feel pressured to make a decision. John would remind me that it's all about the journey. Now as I gaze around my home I am reminded of all my neighborhood shop owners. Each one of them is represented by a precious object that now adorns my home. I am honored to be able to call John Thompson not only my designer but also my friend.
