The Society inc. finds its home in St Peters
Today The Society inc is to be found in a rambling 300m2 imaginarium in St Peters, Sydney. Furniture, textiles, books, homewares, art, and an ever-changing display of oddities & curiosities jostle for space in a gorgeous inner-city, brick warehouse steeped in history and nostalgia, right up to its herringbone joists.
I have shopped the world as part of my job & pleasure for the past 30 years and the retail experience has been beyond memorable for me. I have travelled to the other side of the globe just to visit a shop, and have had goosebumps walking into retail spaces that are magically merchandised where I wonder, is it a theatre set build? Is it a movie? Is it a portal to another world?!
I have been inspired as retail has changed in format to give customers joy & entertainment over the decades. Now I am blurring the lines of my own space between shop, showroom, library, studio, museum and workshop
My design studio is at the end of the warehouse. To visit you must walk through the shop & be immersed in my world on the way. A sense of discovery & adventure is what I always hope for, & strive to build for people to enjoy in any of the spaces I create. In the studio is where we make the magic. We specialise in interior design for hospitality & residential (I’m open to ships too), product design & manufacturing.
From here, I work on collaborations with wonderful partners such as Murobond, Materialised, Eco Outdoors, Molmic and TeraNova, and the hardy crew I captain make my website, , travel, design endeavours, shop, sales, photo shoots & endless content sail smoothly. The range is constantly growing and evolving, inspired by things I see on my regular gallivanting travels and products I wish I could find for my own design projects.
It’s a chaotic mix of history and colour and design, always changing, always growing. The chaos is my calm, it satisfies my part-pirate, part-gypsy spirit.

We whizzed down the back streets of Seminyak and the smaller the streets became the deeper we time travel into a Bali of a time gone-by...
This year, my dear friend and photographer; William Meppem and I captured the essence of this perfect boathouse, located in Newport, Sydney. The ideal spot to drop your anchor this holiday season.
I have dreamt of a boathouse escape for many years and all of my dreams have come true in a recent visit to a space that captures it all, The Salty Dog. This miniature house provides all of the nuances of boat building within its own minute space. Situated amongst the quintessential Sydney landscape of emerald green water and unique sandstone structures - surrounded by angophora gums.
With the extension of the dinghy & direct entrance to the water, this house evolves into an explorative landscape that extends beyond its petite footprint. If I were to create the ideal boathouse... This would be it.
