It remains my goal to amaze, to be subtle, to be inventive, and most importantly, to delight.

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Thad Hayes graduated from the Louisiana State University School of Environmental Design. He practiced as a landscape architect in New York City and studied interior design at Parsons School of Design. Hayes went to work at Bray-Schaible Design in 1982 and three years later established his own office, Thad Hayes, Inc.

Hayes’ interiors always bear a distinctive stamp, yet each tells its own fresh story. His projects are individually conceived and meticulously crafted. They embrace the period and the modern, significant objects and simple ones, furniture Hayes finds and furniture he designs. They have a meditative understatement, but they are not afraid to be bold or daring. In their discipline and thoughtfulness, they are unmistakably his.

Unstinting in his curiosity, Thad Hayes is also unending in his quest to learn, to expand, and –always- to deepen the practice of his craft. Hayes lectures throughout the United States on the subjects of interior design and architecture
