A Sydney-Based Design Duo—Color Included

July 23, 2012

Follow your heart, trust your judgment, do it with joy. That is the motto of a prolific design duo whose every folly seems somehow pitch perfect.

Sasha Titchkosky and Russel Koskela run Koskela, a Sydney-based furniture and design company whose expansive Roseberry showroom is a must-see for anyone interested in Australian modern design. Their tastes are broad, ranging from fluorescent linens and wildly striped rugs to subtle, nature-based pieces. We’re very fond of the duo’s satellite projects, which offer a glimpse at Koskela’s impressive range: restaurant Kitchen by Mike, which shares space with the showroom, and rural hotel Dickebusch. A small sampling of the Koskela showroom range is below; online shopping to come soon.
