Thom Filicia Unveils his new art collection

Press release

Celebrity designer Thom Filicia
and Ed Marin of Soicher Marin, recently collaborated to finalize a unique new art collection, which started last year. Finally, after many e-mails and phone calls, the two came together for a whirlwind 24 hours session and put finishing touches on an inspired line for the Thom Filicia home collection. Filicia chose a minimalist approach to his designs: airplanes, industrial images, leaves, beach scenes and smatterings of Americana. Soicher Marin will unveil the new collection at the High Point Market, a furniture trade show, held in High Point, NC October 16th-21st. After which the line can be seen at www.thomfiliciaart.com


Filicia, acclaimed interior designer to the stars, has been heralded for his innovative decorating magic on Bravo TV’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” , The Style Network’s “Dress My Nest” and “Tacky House.” In addition, Filicia has also been designing his own furniture line for Vanguard Furniture, which is where Marin stepped in. Ed Marin is the CEO of Soicher Marin, the leading art and wall decor manufacturer, which has been in business since 1959. Thom came down to Sarasota in early July to work with Marin, but had a small window of time available. The two stayed up for an intense 24 hours to produce an impeccable line, unveiling at the High Point Furniture Market this October.
High Point Market was given prevalence due to Soicher Marin being a main stay with 100,000 plus attendees over 40 years. The company has a 5,000 sq. ft. permanent exhibition space that is perfect to showcase the new line. “His designs are accessible” Marin says. “It takes me back to being a kid; the nostalgia of America, of a time that was perhaps simpler.” On Filicia he stated, “he’s not pretentious in any way. Everything about the guy is genuine.” Soicher Marin has been creating, designing, selling and manufacturing framed art work and wall decor since 1959. We at Soicher Marin believe in putting the customer first and creating the finest quality pieces offered in the world. At Soicher Marin our integrity has kept us where we are for over 40 years; the world leader in fine wall decor. www.soicher-marin.com; www.sm2online.com; www.srqcustomframing.com
