Where East meets West, this beautifully curated museum showcases the 30-year relationship of one man with the Thai silk industry. Having finished his military service in 1946, Jim Thompson retired to Thailand and began introducing Thai Silk to famous fashion houses in Europe and the USA. Jim’s flair for design, paired with his perfectionist eye for detail, means that his home is now a museum of Thai antiques, Buddhist mosaics, crossed with Belgian chandeliers and Italian marble flooring; it truly is an incredibly tasteful concoction of cultures. Each room is planned with meticulous detail, that shows Jim Thompsons’ depth of understanding and love for South East Asian art and design. At the height of his fame and wealth, Jim travelled to the Malaysian jungle and, inexplicably, never returned. His legacy lives on through a state appointed administrator and the James HW Thompson Foundation, who run the museum for locals and tourists alike to enjoy.
