2014 AD100: The Roger Thomas Collection

by David Stewart

Back to the 2014 AD100 List

I ’m always looking for places nobody has ever seen,” says Roger Thomas, the globe-trotting executive vice president of design for Wynn Design & Development and a veteran of the hospitality industry for more than 30 years. He’s the tastemaking force behind the interiors at the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore resorts and the upcoming Wynn Palace Cotai in China, the company’s most “opulent and daring project to date,” says Thomas, whose romantic aesthetic favors burnished stone and woods and rich fabrics. When not drafting designs for a yacht or decorating lavish homes for his boss, casino mogul Steve Wynn, the Las Vegas–based Thomas is often touring museums, châteaus, and villas around the world for inspiration. The designer has also created several home collections, including furnishings that, he says, “use classic scale and proportion and contrasting textures to build soft architectural silhouettes.” rogerthomascollectionom
