One Night in Bangkok
Actually, make that one night at ADAC, although it certainly felt like Bangkok. Jim Thompson recently celebrated the grand opening of their fabulous new Atlanta showroom, which is their first in North America. And in keeping with the company's Thai roots, the folks of Jim Thompson made sure to give the party Thai flair. There was Thai silk, Thai food, and even a Thai tuk-tuk, into which my friend Barry and I crammed our too-tall bodies.
I had hoped to take some photos of the showroom, but it was jam-packed with guests having a really good time. So instead, I'll show you official images of Jim Thompson's new Spring collections. The Temple of Dawn collection, which is named for a Bangkok landmark, includes some beautiful silks and breezy cottons and linens. Their new outdoor collection, aptly named Singing in the Rain, is made up of acrylic fabrics that can withstand the rigors of outdoor living.
If you're planning a trip to ADAC anytime soon, please stop by the new Jim Thompson showroom. The tuk-tuk may no longer be there, but beautiful fabrics await you.
