    Jason Phillips
    Urban sophistication.
    “Growing up in a family business where we manufacture furniture and decorative accessories overseas has given me the privilege of seeing the world and in doing so, made me a seasoned global traveler. I have been to Southeast Asia dozens of times, visiting Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan and China. I have also travelled extensively throughout most of Western Europe, the United States, and Mexico. This has given me a great sensitivity and appreciation for foreign affairs, trade, and commerce.”
    2011 has been a busy year for Jason Phillips. At only 28, he has gained international recognition in the furniture industry. In the first two months of this year alone, he has been published in over a dozen design and lifestyle magazines as well as over 150 blogs. It seems people are not only amazed at his fresh, contemporary designs, but with the speed with which he is moving. Jason is Vice President and Creative Director at his family’s furniture company, The Phillips Collection. He also runs his own brand, Jason Phillips Design, through which he has won some of the most prestigious awards in his industry and routinely travels to design centers around the country and speak on panels regarding interior design.
