Thad Hayes: The Tailored Interior

Overview

Since establishing his office in New York in 1985, Thad Hayes has become one of the most sought-after young interior designers. As the twenty-two residences here show, he is noted for light-filled interiors characterized by calm colors, quietude, and elegance. His interiors embrace the period and the modern, significant objects and simple ones, furniture he finds and pieces he designs.

Overview

Since establishing his office in New York in 1985, Thad Hayes has become one of the most sought-after young interior designers. As the twenty-two residences here show, he is noted for light-filled interiors characterized by calm colors, quietude, and elegance. His interiors embrace the period and the modern, significant objects and simple ones, furniture he finds and pieces he designs. Hayes’s rooms resound in meditative understatement but are not afraid of being daring. From a penthouse on Central Park, a Deco duplex on Park Avenue, or a pied-à-terre at the Pierre Hotel to a Palm Beach retreat and Hamptons hideaway, his designs are remarkable for their symbiotic sensitivity to the client and his own subtle, extraordinarily beautiful aesthetic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...in the 21 private residences he has chosen to walk readers through the AD 100 designer’s ability to edit is always on display. But so are his predilections for 1940s French furniture, calming palettes and, overall, a simple elegance." ~Architectural Digest

"...The Tailed Interior, featuring twenty-two selected residences masterfully designed by Hayes which exemplify the designer's embrace of light-filled interiors, quietude, and calm colors within his overall sophistication and aptitude for the period Modern." ~1stDibs.com

“The 21 residences shown embody the adjectives that former Vogue associate editor Charles Gandee uses in his introductory essay: rigorous, restrained, and reserved.” ~Interior Design

Read an Excerpt

It’s about time. It’s about time that a book showing the work of the wonderful interior designer Thad Hayes can be shared with readers interested in what distinguishes a great interior designer from a merely good one.
Designers can be formulaic; they can leave their stamp on a room, almost literally putting their name in the room, leaving the client in an anonymous abyss. Not so with Thad Hayes. With his Southern charm and easy smile, Thad listens intently to his client and produces rooms that don’t need to be changed, since they reflect their owner so well.
In these beautiful pages you will see how Thad’s use of proportion and scale invites people into a room.
For my husband, Leonard, and me, Thad created an Adirondack masterpiece in our country home, a tiny one-bedroom log cabin near a pond. Thad filled this home with twig furniture and handcrafted lamps, tables, and bookcases. Now, a favorite hideaway is loaded with charm, color, and patterns, creating the perfect weekend getaway.
In Florida, Thad reworked a formal Georgian house completed in 1938 into our elegant but practical beach house. Since the house literally sits on the beach, Thad chose to keep it elegant without using fancy silks or overly delicate materials. Instead he employed straw rugs on the first floor, anticipating the return from an ocean swim by our guests with sand between their toes. Linens, cottons, and cotton blends with a crisp, smooth hand in elegant, cool colors give our formal rooms the right look, but one could sit on any chair in the breakfast room or dining room in a damp bathing suit.
Touches of extravagance are suggested in Lalique fixtures, Ruhlmann sconces, Chareau chairs, art deco mirrors, and the massing of Leonard’s art deco posters on one wall in the media room. These touches, appropriate and contemporary to the era of the house, feel as if they had been there from the time the house was built. Thad’s restoration even earned a commendation from the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.
In other words, Thad Hayes can make a home fit into its own skin, not into his skin.
And, he is nice. The relationship with a client is key to Thad. After all, sometimes fabrics need to be changed, lampshades replaced, and other adjustments made. The selection of a designer–or a client–should be handled with great care, as the relationship can last for many years. In a successful relationship, designer and client become part of each other’s lives. Thad Hayes certainly has become a happy and productive part of our lives.
You will surely enjoy and appreciate the beauty and comfort you shall see in the pages of this glorious compendium of Thad Hayes’s accomplishments.

~Evelyn H. Lauder's foreword for Thad Hayes
