This is the first post of a new column for StyleCarrot, called Swatching. As you can probably guess, I’ll be highlighting textile, wallpaper, tile, rug, and other similar collections of products used to decorate. I don’t get over to the Boston Design Center as often as I’d like, so maybe this will motivate me. Of course I also get press releases and images directly from the companies and designers as well.
On Monday night I had dinner at Trade, chef Jody Adam’s restaurant on the Waterfront, with the lovely ladies of Manhattan-based interior design firm Tilton Fenwick. (Thank you Duralee for hosting!) I first met Suysel DePedro Cunningham and Anne Maxwell Foster in the spring of 2012, through Traditional Home when the designers we nominated won a spot in magazines digital TRADHome issue. (I wrote about Palmer Weiss; have a peek here.) I’ve followed their work and stayed in touch.
Earlier this year, Suysel and Anne, who are known for mixing a giddy array of color and pattern, launched their first fabric line, Tilton Fenwick Collection for Duralee. Here is a sampling of their fantastic prints. Now, I need to go see what I can re-cover . . .
