Judith Mackin

Creative Director & Founder, Tuck

“As a child, every Saturday morning I’d lock myself in my bedroom, re-arrange all the furnishings and toys, then pass out a score sheet to my parents, who would dutifully assign me a mark in the various categories Thus was my passion for interiors lovingly fostered. Not much has changed. Only now I do it for clients and I have a store full of lovely things from which we both can choose.” - Judith

Judith has won several awards for her entrepreneurial excellence and interiors, and has been nominated for many other national and local distinctions. She’s been featured on W Network, HGTV, BELL, and too many print publications to list. She’s a former CBC award-winning journalist, co-founder of Alternative Newspaper, here, and co-founder of Saint John’s only Artist-Run Centre, Third Space. She opened and co-owned New Brunswick’s first wine bar, Happinez, and designed the first New Brunswick Scotch bar, Hopscotch. Most recently TUCK completed the interiors for Tony’s Atelier & Boulangerie in Moncton and was featured on the cover of Maritime Edit hailed as Canada’s best new restaurant. Notwithstanding the above, in her view Judith’s biggest accomplishment is “getting up every day, heading to work with a team that I love, clients that I adore, in a city that I’m bonkers about.”

Judith shares her life with Robert Moore, a professor, artist and poet.

In 2016, I came to Tuck with a strong interest in furniture design and interior decorating; nearly seven years later, you could call me obsessed! I make it my business to be a catalogue of information on the brands that we carry so that I can assist in finding the best options to suit your space and your lifestyle. Luckily, that’s what I love to do! When I’m not at the shop, you can find me playing board games, exploring our beautiful city and listening to my favourite true crime podcasts. Hopefully soon you’ll see me taking in live music again too!

Originally “from away,” I’ve reconnected with my deep Maritime roots and I’m so glad I did! The first time I stepped into Tuck I said to my husband, “Wow...I have to work there!” and nearly three years later, Tuck is like my second home and the team is like family to me! What brings me joy is helping our clients find pieces that suit their needs and creating beautiful spaces that honours them and their lifestyle. Outside of Tuck you can find me at a local brewery, meeting up with friends for a meal, playing with my cat, Gilly, or singing on stage somewhere!


A longtime Tuck fan; Tom’s  adoration of the Eames’ philosophy of blending the love of work and life has always been served dutifully within the scope of design Tuck creates by taking pleasure seriously.

Becoming a part of the fabric of Tuck gives Tom an utmost sense of pride, and is the perfect excuse to be constantly surrounded by the genius of beautiful, functional spaces.






Originally from Saint John, I studied Interior Decorating in Ottawa then came back to the Port City to pursue my career. Before coming to Tuck, I worked at any number of retail stores including the EQ3 store in Ottawa. While I’m not in the studio full time, I’m happy to have an opportunity to continue working as part of the Tuck team member on a project by project basis.
