Meet the Team

MARIA SEPULVEDA KIRKEL co-founded SUITE NY with best friend, Kris Fuchs, in the autumn of 2006. Since, along with her team, SUITE NY has become the brand it is today: a major force in the international modern furniture marketplace.

Maria works closely with Managing Partner, Nick Taricco, founding Creative Director, Chris Kraig, and the dedicated team at SUITE NY to provide the finest in luxury furnishings along with a quality shopping experience.

The company’s NoMad showroom has become a landmark for New York’s design industry and aficionados in the know.

Maria is most proud of the passion for design that each member of her team shares, and of her showroom’s exemplary reputation as a warm and welcoming environment with unparalleled customer service.

Operating as a hands-on team, SUITE NY is a family business where clients and staff are friends first.
