Following successful collections with renowned designers such as John Robshaw, Clodagh and Eileen Kathryn Boyd, Duralee has announced its latest collaboration with Tilton Fenwick, an emerging firm known for its fresh and colorful perspective on traditional-minded interiors.
“It was clear to us they [Duralee] are not only long-time industry leaders, but also looking to support and invest in the next generation of designers,” said Suysel DePedro Cunningham and Anne Maxwell-Foster, co-founders of Tilton Fenwick.

Cunningham and Foster have worked with the Duralee design team to create a three-book collection of printed and woven textiles that are colorful, sophisticated and distinctive— set for release in January 2014.
Duralee designers are chosen not just for their name, but also for their ability to infuse their products with their personality, according to Marty Rosenberger, president of Duralee.
“Anne and Suysel are working designers, so they understand that in addition to looking fantastic, a fabric must be usable,” he said. “That intuition, coupled with their updated traditional aesthetic and the skill of our in-house design team, were necessary components when creating this collection of sensibly chic designs. In addition, they have garnered an impressive amount of respect within the industry in a relatively short amount of time, making us proud to have the Tilton Fenwick name on our samples and selvages.”
