Todd Oldham, Mentor
Top Design's second season competitors are lucky to have Todd Oldham acting as their mentor. Oldham is a well-known designer whose career spans more than 20 years. Distinguished as an innovator of accessible design, Oldham is the founder of Todd Oldham Studio, a multifaceted, full-service design studio.
Originally a New York fashion designer, and the host of "Todd Time" on MTV's House of Style, Oldham's career has evolved to include all areas of design, from interior design, film and photography, to furniture, graphic art, and a collection of floral designs for FTD.com. Oldham is the author of Hand Made Modern, and has hosted HGTV's Hand Made Modern series of specials. In 2002 and 2003, Oldham designed his own line of dorm room furnishings for Target.
Oldham designed The Hotel in South Beach as well as Enoteca Spiaggia, a restaurant collaboration with James Beard award-winning Chef Tony Mantuano, to open in South Beach in 2008. Other projects include a 400-page monograph on the life's work of artist Charley Harper published by Ammo Books. In October 2007, Oldham became the Design Creative Director for Old Navy.
In his latest design endeavor, Oldham turns his creative eye to carpet, collaborating with Durkan Hospitality to produce a series of flexible, versatile floor coverings. The first collections of the aptly named T.O.D.D (Todd Oldham Designs Durkan) series launched at the Hospitality Design Expo 2008 in April.
