Susan Young and Tamara Stephenson are long-time friends with backgrounds in interior design, fashion, and fine art. They are a New York City-based interior design duo working on residential interior design projects at Tamara Stephenson Interior Design. In 2015, they launched root cellar designs where they create and manufacture quality American-made home textiles, wallpaper, as well as home and fashion accessories. Channeling the artistry of women hundreds of years ago who canned fruits and vegetables from the farm in their root cellar, the duo utilizes Tamara's astute design eye, sense of color and demand for quality with Susan's extensive background in manufacturing, artistry and attention to detailing. When creating their collections, they pull inspiration from travel, fashion, their antique collections, and nature-- the result is fresh innovative designs not seen elsewhere in the Market.
