STUDIO TULLIA was born out of a desire to make meaningful objects for the home. Says founder Suzanne, “About 20 years ago, as a young design student, I walked into a room in an 1840 antebellum mansion called Chanteloup in North Carolina that had been locked up for many years. The room contained all of the window dressings for the house over the years, and its different seasons, as well as a variety of embroidered linens, carved and gilded cornices, beaded flapper dresses from the 20’s, miscellaneous bolts of fabric and even rolls of satin ribbon from my Grandmother’s wedding. It was a treasure trove of insight into my ancestor’s taste and lifestyle.”

Suzanne says, “The items I found that day and a few heirloom pieces are all that I have left of my ties to this grand piece of family history. I salvaged the scraps from this treasure trove of goods that were sun faded and quite fragile. I launched my first pillow line using these found materials and have been making pillow covers ever since.”

The unique handcrafted collection also includes classic prints such as plaids and stripes.
