8:00am: Morning licks from the pups make it impossible to sleep in too late! My two rescue pups, Lago and Lexi, get my day started right with a little stroll along the west side highway. I also try to get a jog in on the High Line and stop by Mercado Little Spain in Hudson Yards for a morning coffee! Mercado Little Spain, 10 Hudson Yards, littlespain.com

9:30am: Head to my office and showroom at the New York Design Center, called Sedgwick & Brattle by Thom Filicia. Fun Fact: S&B is named after the cross streets where I grew up in my hometown. Sedgwick & Brattle by Thom Filicia, 200 Lexington Ave. #8, sedgwickandbrattle.com

11:00am: Lunch in the Butterfield Cafe with my staple of Keto lifestyle lunch (or, if I’m feeling frisky I’ll go to Simon and the Whale at the Freehand Hotel). Butterfield Cafe, 200 Lexington Ave., butterfield200lex.com; Simon and the Whale, 23 Lexington Ave., satw.com

12:00pm: Meet with product design team to review new product for the Thom Filicia Home Collection. We are constantly developing a new product for our Home Collection, and I work with our team internally to flesh out designs, and then collaborate with our partners to flesh out specifics with manufacturing. Thom Filicia Home Collection, thomfilicia.com

2:00pm: Meet with one of our residential or commercial clients. I often meet with our clients in NYC and shop with them at various showrooms in our building and around the city. NYC has so many fabulous places to shop, but a few of our go-to’s are BDDW, Gracie, Soane, John Salibello and Dmitry & Co. Dmitry & Co., 133 W. 25th, dmitryco.com

5:00pm: When the weather’s nice I love to walk home from the office, stopping to check out some of the great galleries near my apartment on the way. Some of my favorite are HG Contemporary, Sears Peyton Gallery and the rooting exhibits at the Gallery at 200 (which is super convenient because it’s in our building!) Gallery at 200, 200 Lexington Ave., nydc.com

6:00pm: Home to walk and feed the pups, including a possible visit to the West Chelsea

Dog Park for a little post-work play for Lago and Lexi, before happy hour. 11th Ave at 23rd St., hudsonriverpark.org

7:30pm: Meet up with friends for drinks/dinner/nightcap or the not-often-enough-date depending on the night, workload and energy level. Some of my go-to’s are Indochine, Empire, and Juban. Juban, 207 10th Ave., jubannyc.com

10:30pm: Ending the day every once-in-a-while with a much-deserved Soho House nightcap. Soho House, 39-35 Ninth Ave., sohohouseny.com
