Mark Tuckey

For a number of years now, I have been drawn to timbers and recycled materials when it comes to the home. A furniture designer i've followed for as long as I can remember is Mark Tuckey, a creator of all things organic and natural.

Starting out in Melbourne, he became known for his one-off pieces and slowly developed a name for himself. Moving to Sydney and opening Mark Tuckey in the northern beaches suburb of Newport, he quickly became a 'go-to' for interior designers wanting that 'beachy/organic look'.

It's not only his showrooms that are a maze of man-made, organic pieces, his home in the beach suburb of Clareville looks just as amazing. With views over the water, it's hard not to relax and feel at home. But Mark and his wife Louella have managed to create an idillic retreat.

If you're not on the lookout for a large furniture piece, why not try Mark Tuckey Home which is in Avalon. Smaller pieces for everyday living.
