Exploring The Aesthetic Mastery of Mark Cunningham
Mark Cunningham established his eponymous design firm in 2005, following a fifteen-year tenure at Ralph Lauren. Today, the firm’s curriculum vitae is diverse in scope and scale, comprising luxury residential interior projects, hotel design, architectural consulting, and commercial concepts domestically and abroad. Soft-spoken yet meticulous, Mark has come to be known for his masterfully layered interior compositions and singular approach to space and style. Mark and Mark Cunningham, Inc. are honored to be routinely included in the yearly lists of America’s top designers by Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Luxe Magazine, and others.
Mark Cunningham’s designs often exude a timeless elegance that transcends trends and fads. He is known for creating interiors that feel both classic and contemporary, utilizing a neutral color palette, luxurious materials, and carefully curated furnishings. This approach ensures that his designs remain relevant and captivating for years to come. Cunningham is a master of balancing different elements within a space. His designs achieve a harmonious composition through the careful arrangement of furniture, art, lighting, and accessories. The result is a sense of equilibrium that promotes visual comfort and invites occupants to seamlessly interact with the space.
A hallmark of Cunningham’s work is his skillful use of textures and materials. He often combines natural textures like wood, stone, and woven textiles to create depth and visual interest. This tactile approach adds layers of richness to his interiors, enhancing the overall sensory experience.
Natural elements often find their way into Cunningham’s designs. He embraces the beauty of organic materials, such as indoor plants, natural fibers, and raw wood, to bring a sense of tranquility and connection to the outdoors into his interiors. Beyond aesthetics, Cunningham places a strong emphasis on functionality and comfort. His interiors are designed to be lived in, ensuring that each space is not only visually pleasing but also practical and comfortable for its inhabitants.
In 2019, Mark launched MARKED. Now available to the design community, MARKED is a furniture line of select favorites from Mark’s archival portfolio of custom-designed pieces, a project-minded textile collection, and a curated selection of vintage and found objects and art. The MARKED showroom shares an open and airy, sun-drenched space in midtown Manhattan with the Mark Cunningham, Inc. offices and is available to visit by appointment. The textile collection is available at Alt for Living in New York City and Los Angeles.
