Vibrant. Cheerful. Colorful. If adjectives like these pique your interest, then look no further than the interior stylings of design firm Tilton Fenwick. It's hard to believe that this New York based company was established only four years ago by Anne Maxwell Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham. The Tilton Fenwick aesthetic rings so perfectly clear and they have seen so much success so quickly that it feels like the designers must have been established long ago! In 2011, Tilton Fenwick was named "Rising Star of Interior Design" by the International Furnishings and Design Association, participated in the Hamptons Designer Showhouse and was named by Traditional Home as one of the top 20 "New Traditionals."
Shortly thereafter, fabric giant Duralee and Tilton Fenwick partnered to create new twists on familiar patterns with a major upholstery collection. Alone, these patterns may invoke the comforting feel of a countryside cabin but, as you can see in the images above, Tilton Fenwick loves to place a modern twist on tradition.

I recently perused the Duralee site looking for a fabric perfect for a mountain home's curtains. (The client chose the top paisley fabric...more to come on that later.) Imagine my pleasant surprise when days later, Target unveiled their newest collaboration with Tilton Fenwick, a playful collection of furnishings in Tilton Fenwick's signature Duralee fabrics now available at incredibly affordable prices.
With prices ranging from $219.99 for a fully upholstered ottoman to $884.99 for king sized bed, you won't have to eat Raman noodles to afford home furnishings. Play up the patterns by mixing in block prints with florals or stripes with paisleys. Or keep the upholstery the centerpiece by sparingly styling rustic neutrals in linen and wood. Which of these pieces are your favorite? How would you use it in your home? A playful settee in a cozy reading nook is just one of many ways I could see using these new pieces. Let me know if you get your hands on one!
