Designhounds KBIS 2019- Thompson Traders Copper Sinks and more

Designhounds KBIS 2019 had the utmost pleasure of welcoming first time sponsor Thompson Traders. Family owned Thompson Traders manufactures brilliant hand-crafted copper sinks, tubs and accessories for the kitchen and bath and when we say family, wow, what a family. Founded by the lovely Alejandra Ochoa De Thompson and her equally lovely daughter Samantha Thompson, the duo worked with coppersmiths from Alejandra’s hometown in Santa Clara Del Cobre, Mexico to bring their creative vision of beautiful copper products to the kitchen and bath. Husband Cliff Thompson and sons Cliff Thompson Jr., President of Thompson Traders and JJ Thompson, Vice President of Operations currently play integral parts of the family-owned company as well. The family warmly welcomed Designhounds with wine, big smiles, thoughtful treats and the disarming charm that translates into every piece they make.

Pretty sexy right? Learn more about the new finish here.

Visiting the Thompson Traders booth during KBIS 2019 was a feast for the eyes. How gorgeous is this Nuvo Frida Tub and lighting installation? See the tub here.

It wouldn’t be a Designhounds tour without a dip in a tub. And they do it well! Here you have Jana, Claire and Anna but you can meet all 23 of them here.

Thompson Traders is King when it comes to copper textures and artistry making a statement in the kitchen and bath space.


Thompson Traders pride themselves in their carefully and expertly crafted copper, but most importantly they are a family that provides the utmost hospitality to their guests, customers and friends. A big thank you to Thompson Traders for putting together a lovely, inviting and engaging event for our group and treating Modenus so well. Cheers!
