An interview of Thomas with lots of photos!
There are several different lines of products available inside our retail stores and gift shops. These include products designed and/or created by Schoos, items collected by us, or joint projects representing a collaboration between Schoos and one of our design partners.
Currently, our offerings fall into one of the following categories:
Any original product or artwork created by Schoos is part of the Thomas Schoos Signature line. For instance, in addition to original paintings and sculptures, Schoos offers “one-of-a-kind” items like dramatic furniture pieces, custom tables and consoles, chandeliers, table lamps, distinctive planter boxes, and other accessories for the home such as trays, mirrors and tablewares.
Our passion for diverse cultures and works of art has also led Schoos Design to become an avid collector and connoisseur of art objects from around the world. In an effort to make this resource available commercially, The Schoos Collection was formed to discover and market disinctive objects and artwork by artists from many cultures and styles. For example, the collection currently includes a large variety of sculptures by artists from Africa and Asia.
In addition, Schoos Products curates art from emerging and well known artists for use in our various projects and for sale to the public.
Items in the Synergy Line represent collaborations between Thomas Schoos and another artist. Currently, we have two collections in this line:
The Jewel Collection
These distinctive items are a product of the collaboration between Schoos and famed jewelry designer Melinda Maria, some of whose original pieces are seen in the photo below.
Thomas collaborated with Melinda Maria to create these products inspired by her line of jewelry. The line includes furniture and art pieces based on the jewelry designs of Melinda Maria and given the Schoos touch through our expertise designing furniture and accessories. Some examples of these items include tables, mirrors, napkin rings and chandeliers resembling diamond rings or precious stones.
Melinda Maria’s collections have dazzled on some of the biggest stars in the world, prompting E! Television to dub her "Hollywood’s Bling Queen." Melinda Maria Jewelry is worn over and over again by celebrities including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Madonna, Hayden Panettiere, Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus, Isla Fisher, Selena Gomez, Megan Fox and the list goes on and on…
The Miles Davis Collection
Thomas Schoos was approached by the Miles Davis estate in 2011 to create a collection of merchandise that could be sold in connection with a touring show based on the life of Davis, called the Miles Davis Experience. The items in this collection capture the essence of Miles Davis’ style in fashion, art and music.
