Designer Spotlight: Tilton Fenwick

Tilton Fenwick, the New York City interior design firm led by Anne Maxwell Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham is doing great things. Just four years after hanging out their stylish  shingle,this adorable design duo has just debuted a line of upholstered furniture at Target. Known for saturated colors and mixing and matching of patterned fabrics, this pair has fun and it shows.

I first met Anne Maxwell Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham at a lunch in New York hosted by Traditional Home for the magazine’s 2012 New Trad issue. Last year, when they traveled to Boston to promote their new Tilton Fenwick Fabric Collection for Duralee, I attended a dinner in their honor. I always have such a good time with them; lots of laughing.

Here is a sampling of Tilton Fenwick’s work—in case you haven’t seen it all over Pinterest already— as well as a selection of patterned upholstered headboards, sofas, ottomans, and chairs from the brand new Tilton Fenwick Designer Upholstery Furniture Collection for Target.

Swatching: Tilton Fenwick for Duralee

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 . . .

Fine Print: Victoria Hagan Interior Portraits

Victoria Hagan’s design book Interior Portraits (Rizzoli, October 2010) came out back in October, but I’ve been so busy these last few months I’m just catching up on my reading now. I’ve been a fan of Hagan’s work for years. Her environments are quiet, yet strong, perfectly balanced and sophisticated. I especially admire her sense of composition, serene aesthetic, and way she incorporates statement artwork.

Designer Victoria Hagan Blue Library

This blue library is much more saturated in color than Hagan’s usual spaces. The blue/green walls have an ombré effect. I adore oversize artwork and that teal velvet chair. 

Designer Victoria Hagan White Living Room With Statement Artwork

A great big canvas adds life and color to a neutral room, picking up on the colors and lines of the rug.

A photo adds movement to this wood-panelled study.

Designer Victoria Hagan Living Room With Green Drapes

I love how the drapes on the French doors correspond to the fireplace surround.

A room with a view, and an extra large mirror to reflect all that light.
