ABOUT JETT THOMPSON

OWNER & PRINCIPAL DESIGNER

Jett Thompson, sixth generation Floridian, earned her undergraduate degree in Fashion Merchandising from The Florida State University before beginning a twenty-five year career in the home furnishing and design industry in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2012, she came home to open Jett Thompson Antiques and Interiors in Old Naples.

Following five successful years in her original location Jett moved her business one block north, doubling the retail space, renamed Jett Thompson HOME, and creating a separate interior design studio. The two buildings surround a private courtyard utilized for speakers, book signings and community events.

Jett has accessorized rooms for Ralph Lauren Home and her previous boutique openings include Atlanta, St. Simons Island, and Englewood, FL before bringing her talents to Naples. A few of her nationally recognized interior projects include a luxury Bed and Breakfast in Colorado, a Ritz Carlton residence in Sarasota, along with private luxury homes in SW Florida, Palm Beach and New York.

With her unique design aesthetic, Jett’s work is celebrated for juxtaposing the organic with the refined, all with a twist of the unexpected.

RYDER

STORE MASCOT

Jett’s rapidly growing puppy was born on Valentine’s Day and is a total love bug. At five months, he has already shown a keen sense for picking trim and leather samples, as well as testing out our upholstery.

Ryder has the “ Meet and Greet” routine down pat and an ever growing fan club in both the store and the design firm!
