Your creamy, curvy, furniture blends vintage vibes with a modern aesthetic and we are ALL about it! But let’s take a step back, how did you go from business woman to furniture designer?
I initially worked as a commercial property valuer, which set a great business based foundation for my future design based ventures. I finally followed my design dreams in the late 2000s and worked in fashion, launching my own womenswear label. A few years down the track, we designed and built our new home combining contemporary and mid century influences. This initiated my transition from fashion to interiors. I’ve always been passionate about architecture and interiors, how a space can make you feel, how it can envelop you and bring comfort and pleasure. Furnishing our new home allowed me to explore with colour, texture and materials and eventually custom design many of the key pieces.
Your motto is the past is our muse and the future is our canvas which we love. Can you tell us who your favourite vintage furniture designer is?
I have a deep respect for Pierre Paulin and his visionary design aesthetic. His use of colour and layered neutral tones resonates with me. Paulin's iconic furnishings manage to be multi faceted, timeless statement pieces whilst still oozing comfort.
Your range is ever expanding, what is your favourite piece you’ve created and what’s next on your list?
My Horizons bedhead would have to top the list. It’s such a dreamy and incredibly comfortable piece, also fully customisable from dimensions to fabric selection. It has the ability to transform any bedroom into a sanctuary and definitely induces deeper sleep in our home!
My next piece will be a sprawling sofa-meets-day-bed. I’m currently working on the design for our home theatre, it will be a vision of endless nude pink alpaca velvet and curves. I’d love to expand into lighting too, moody lighting can really elevate a space and set the tone as the sun goes down. I have a thing for sculptural floor lamps and wall sconces.
