Tilton Fenwick is a boutique interior design firm that brings a fresh perspective to traditional aesthetics. Principal designers Anne Maxwell Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham embrace unexpected uses of colour and pattern in all of their interior and product design.
After graduating from Tufts University, Suysel was trained by her mentor Markham Roberts. Anne graduated from Boston College and further pursued her design career with graduate coursework in architecture at Pratt Institute as well as positions at Brockschmidt & Coleman and Ashley Whittaker Design.
With these solid foundations and a shared affection for exuberant and bold design, Anne and Suysel joined forces in 2010 to launch Tilton Fenwick (named after their college dorms). Anne and Suysel collaborate equally on all aspects of their business.
Suysel lives in New York City with her husband, David, and their daughter, Cecilia.
Anne lives in New York City with her husband, Ryan, and children, Gibbie and Charlie.
