Traditional Home Magazine predicts “Tobi will be like Cher. Or Oprah. One of those women for whom one name says it all”. Selected as one of Traditional Home’s Top 20 Young Designers in America, Tobi Fairley has a signature look that is fresh and simple combining colorful, large-scale prints with classic furniture styles for a beautiful and functional result.
Since establishing her design firm more than a decade ago, Tobi’s projects have spanned the Southern region and the nation from Charleston to Los Angeles. Her award winning designs for high-profile and celebrity clients have been featured on HGTV, have been published on the cover of House Beautiful and in Traditional Home, Better Homes and Gardens special publications, Southern Living, and have graced the cover of At Home in Arkansas Magazine 9 times.
Tobi’s design blog created in September 2008 is currently read in more than 124 countries worldwide. It has been featured on several of the world’s most popular design blogs including All the Best, Coco and Kelley, and was named as a favorite blog on HGTV.com. Tobi also writes a monthly design column, Tobi’s Tips, for AY magazine, a regular blog column for At Home in Arkansas Magazine called Color Confidential, and is a regular contributor to William Sonoma’s Designer Marketplace.
Tobi’s unique combination of degrees in interior design, accounting and an MBA from the prestigious Sam M. Walton College of Business, gives her a competitive advantage in the design industry.
In 2010 Tobi introduced her DIY design service, InBox Interiors, and launched her popular design camps. Designers and Design Enthusiasts alike have attended camps from across the United States and Canada with rave reviews.
Tobi’s new home furnishings line, Tobi Fairley Home, a collection of fabrics, pillows and lighting, debuted as part of Hickory Chair’s Centennial Furniture Collection in the Fall of 2011.
