About the Designer
Supon Phornirunlit -- more often known simply as Supon -- from forging a wildly successful path as a graphic designer in a city known more for wonkish policy than stylish digs. And even if you don't know his name, you've seen his work for Coca-Cola, IBM, the U.S. Open, the Smithsonian and many, many more. Supon is a big business for the former teen from Thailand who came to the U.S. to finish high school, only to end up founding one of the city's most renowned design firms, Supon Design Group. After selling the company in 1999 and taking a few years off, Supon now works as Supon Creative, continuing his string of award-winning designs, books, d cor and advertising campaigns. But there's more than just the stylish eye, as Supon loves his home and hospitality. In his Kalorama homestead, his own personal style is on vibrant display -- albeit ever-changing, as he redecorates his townhouse every year. 'I don't like to do the same thing over and over,' he says with a smile. 'I love change.' Among his pet projects is Pooch D cor, a line inspired by his own lovable -- and well-loved -- pets. As he chats in his living room, dogs Cricket and Taylor are constant companions, along with his cat, Logo. The memory of his first dog, the late Pica, remains strong as well. His pets aren't just inspirational, they help Supon keep control of his life. 'Pets aren't an accessory for me,' he says. 'I always get so mad when people think that pets are a toy or a fashion accessory. They keep me calm, they force me to go out and play, and they take the stress away.' With his sparkling sense of style and playfulness, Supon is not just a designer who makes his home in an unlikely city. He's simply an original.
