Top Design Season 2: Getting to know Nathan Thomas

Originally from Denver, Colo., Nathan Thomas, 30, was exposed to blueprints and drafting tools at a very young age, by his mother who worked at an architecture firm. His passion for design was instinctual and he always yearned to see more art and architecture. Although he had a love for design, Nathan originally entered college thinking that he was interested in science, but it didn’t take long for his true passion in the arts to come through. He became inspired by photography, drawn to the art of manipulating space and time. To further his education in the arts, Nathan transferred to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y. in their interior design program, transferring again shortly thereafter to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where he received his BFA in interior design. Following graduation, Nathan went on to become a Junior Designer at Alexandra Champalimaud & Associates, where his projects included The New York Palace Hotel and The Marriot Financial Center. Nathan is currently a Senior Designer at Nathan Egan Interiors, where he focuses on high-end residential work from Manhattan to the East End. He is inspired by the world around him and finds beauty and inspiration everyday.

Here are some images from Nathan Egan Interiors’ website. Nathan Thomas is actually not the Nathan in the company name – that belongs to Wayne Nathan. The Egan is Carol Egan. I selected the images that appealed to me most from their website – although there is no way of knowing if Nathan Thomas worked on these. But in general, all their work has a lot of drama. Even the most traditional spaces have something – whether it’s the artwork or a signature lighting fixture that really makes the spaces pop.

  1. After watching two episodes of TD Season 2, I think that Nathan is the best designer of the group. I like his seemingly laid-back attitude and inate talent.

    Agree with previous post – his design is great. Looking forward to next week’s show and seeing more of Nathan’s design. Can’t wait for individual challenges.

  2. Thanks for this post about Nathan! After the first season I was starting to get worried that there wouldn’t be a season 2! So glad Bravo decided on renewing it.

  3. I think Nathan is the most down to earth person ever. The Eco challenge, Eddie straight up stole Nathan’s concept. Eddie ended up winning, however, Nathan was totally a gentlemen about it. If anyone knows how I can get a hold of Nathan please email me…. PLEASE!!!! I’m A HUGE FAN!!!

  4. Hi Jenna,
    I’d asked and he said “It is from a shop in NYC called Opening Ceremony in SoHo on Howard Street.” He wasn’t sure it was still being made, but he said it is his favorite hoodie.
