The Tuckernuck Office Tour
By Tuckernuck on
Just a short walk away from Tuckernuck’s flagship Georgetown boutique lives our company headquarters. Tucked away on a cobble-stone street in a lovely old brownstone, the office recently underwent a full style renovation, and we’re delighted to unveil the Tuckernuck Office Tour.
The entryway at the Tuckernuck office features marbleized tonal wallpaper and a mix of family heirlooms, antiques, and newfound treasures.
A true collaboration between the senior Tuckernuck team – Founders Jocelyn Gailliot, Maddy Grayson and September Rinnier, and Creative Director Sophie Newbold – and local interior designer Zoe Feldman, the space is full of classic style, and sprinkled with unexpected elements of humor and nostalgia.
The artwork was found on Chairish. The campaign chest Jocelyn found while antiquing on Nantucket.
Most of the pieces in the greeting room were found on Chairish or at auction houses.

The gallery wall features toungue-in-cheek renditions of emojis, done by Creative Director Sophie. The bust was done by Founder Maddy and Jocelyn's brother.
When we decided to move into a new office, we wanted to reflect the history of the historic Georgetown building while creating a space that felt functional, but unexpected, soulful and like a home. We had a lot of fun bringing our love of antiques, interesting collectibles and modern art and furniture into our working environment.
The greeting room has an eclectic, layered feel. The chairs, stools, coffee table, and daybed were all found on Chairish. The mirror is Restoration Hardware, and the etagere is from CB2.
We originally got to know each other as neighbors, renting office space in the same building. And years later, when the Tuckernuck team approached me about this project, I was immediately excited to do it because they have great style. It was one of the most collaborative projects I’ve ever done, because they’re creatives too, and I was able to help them execute our vision.
The main attraction of this office space is the Acacia Ardmore wallpaper by Cole and Sons.
Our tastes are similar, but not the same, which allowed for a more eclectic, layered final project. And the Tuckernuck team’s style is sophisticated, so it was fun to showcase that complexity. We stayed on-brand, and dug a little deeper. The office is now very much a reflection of who they are as people, in their own homes
The Platner table was a hand-me-down from Jocelyn and Maddy's parents. The pitcher is from Pillar and Post, a Georgetown antique store.
The mantle was painted Farrow and Ball's Inchyra Blue. The boots belonged to Jocelyn and Maddy's grandfather. The print is by D.C. Artist Gene Davis.
The mannequins were found at local D.C. antique store Goodwood. Jocelyn's childhood self portrait hangs above the desks.
The wallpaper is juxtaposed with a modern chair and high gloss black doors.
We have a passion for layers of color, textiles and different periods of art and furniture. Zoe helped give us the confidence to take some risks that make the space beautiful, such as the black doors, painted mantels and marble-like wallpaper in the greeting room. The office is filled with things that make us happy and trigger special memories for us.
The conference room table was custom made in Virginia. The cane chairs were inspired by chairs in the founders' grandparents homes.The painting of woman diving into the deep end (metaphor for females taking risks) was painted by Sophie.
We designed it on a budget, and because we wanted it to feel like a reflection of our brand and style it took longer to source. But it was worth every penny, as we love to go to work every day, and we use the backdrops often for photoshoots.
The large office area features a gallery wall with favorite images from past Tuckernuck photo shoots. The console table is a hand-me-down from Jocelyn and Maddy's dad. The desks are from ikea.

Keeping the budget in mind, they kept the square tile and pedestal sink and added some style with more Cole and Sons wallpaper.
The eating area in the kitchen features a Pierre Fray pillow. The board is updated with the company's seasonal Find the Fun list.
The kitchen features photos of the team members who check off the Find the Fun list.
As a company of mostly women, the need for a lactation room was apparent. Various pieces of art featuring the female form are on display.

I love the black-and-white gallery wall over the burl-wood console in the great room that Sophie did. Such a fabulous little vignette. And as a woman and mother, I love that they have a lactation room – we made it very whimsical with the boob art and stripes
The Tuckernuck photo studio, where all of the products are shot, is tucked away in the back of the space.
There’s a beautiful tension in the space – modern art combined with more classic pieces. It makes it a little more 70s. There are unexpected elements and combinations in a space that you might have thought would be exactly one way. They incorporated a lot of vintage pieces, and it’s very heirloom in that way. But still very them.
