A Little About Us

Thompson + Hanson is home to designers and architects, curators and gardeners–creatives at heart grateful for the privilege of shaping and inspiring beautiful spaces across Houston and Austin for the last 37 years. We delight in the work that we do, and we attribute our continued growth to the vibrant, motivated and caring individuals that make up our Thompson + Hanson family.

A quiet sophistication permeates every Thompson + Hanson environment. You’ll find that within the walls of our shops, on the pages of our online shop, and the meandering paths of our nurseries, we are creatives at heart who enjoy the opportunity to bring something fresh to the table, always with an eye to shaping tranquil spaces that people love to inhabit. Whether wandering through rows of flowers and fragrance, browsing carefully curated pieces in the shops or online, or simply savoring the view in the shade of an oak tree, our hope is to provide an experience that puts you at ease, surrounds you with beauty, and leaves you inspired.
