Decorator Heaven at Oz Design Moore Park

Oz Design Moore Park

Where does one start when it comes to describing Oz Design? While it’s been around as long as I have (30 years and still doesn’t look a day over 25!), in recent times it’s multiplied its amazement factor. When I walked into the Moore Park store for my exclusive tour, I almost needed the store manager, Joe, to slap me across the face to wake me out of my design-induced coma; the current range is that phenomenal.

The Tatler sofa above – in all its buttoned glory – is the first thing I saw when I walked in the door. It’s hands down my favourite sofa; a little retro, a little colourful and most certainly playful with the skattering of those cushions. It’s just one many pieces that channels a retro vibe. There’s loads of colour in the store at the moment and a lot of old-school art that’s celebrating a resurgence.

What’s not to love about the love clocks? I actually like the idea of having a few of them clustered together on a wall. You’ll also notice the faux plant; perfect for those of you (like myself) who aren’t too good at keeping greenery alive! Below, the industrial-style clock would fit right in on my dining room wall, and would even play well in an outdoor area if there was roofing overhead.

One look at the Upton sofa above (in Avanti Denim) and you can see why the team at Oz Design are the experts in Fabric. Containing some amazing bold and graphic patterns, their fabrics are sourced from across the globe, allowing you to really make a statement (the statement I would like to make is that I want that armchair!)

Besides the retro and playful pieces, Oz Design also stocks a range made from metals and other raw, earthy  materials. It’s a great way to ground a room if it’s a little playful and adds a real point of interest. The bronzed mirrors above, which have been made to look aged, are a perfect example of this. The cages below are also a useful way to take the edge off bright and shiny furniture in a room and will add a real sense of balance (they’d look fabulous with large candles inside).

I can barely put into words how on-the-money Oz Design is in nailing my love for industrial design. Both the coffee table above and the light fixtures below make my decorator heart palpitate (call a medic!). They are my home decor dream come true and would make such an interesting conversation piece. The framed print below is also incredibly cute for all the lovers out there.

While retro-industrial (with a hint of second-hand) is truly my decorating style, I have to say the team excel when it comes to coastal. This range is perfection for those of you who dig the calming influence of a beach theme. Better still, none of it is too literal (no boats or bottles filled with sand here), so you can keep the zen vibe in your home without the obvious nods to nautical.

The Painter coffee table above – which comes in turquoise or white – is so nice with the textured cushions slotted underneath. It adds the warmth that a costal theme needs, and the pops of green, blue and grey are ideal to add interest without the colour clash. I also love when a furniture store adds an element of surprise by stocking something you’d never expect – and the tote bag below is a perfect example of this. I can see it hanging on a rustic ladder or industrial hook, holding wood or some rolled up newspapers.

It’s safe to say that I saved the best for last. This Nancy sofa – featured above and below – is a Chevron dream! I can’t get enough of Chevron at the moment and it’s popping up all over the place on cushions, vases and other decorator pieces. But why settle for scatters of Chevron when you can go all out and make a bold statement with an entire armchair?

  • My fav post of yours so far. That place looks awesome and as soon as I finish this comment I’ll be jumping onto their site for a look. My options are very limited in country nsw and when we do venture to Sydney the car is full of luggage and children….not much shopping space. Thanks for showing me around. 🙂

    • Oh you are more than welcome – and thank you for the kind comments 🙂 Even if you can’t fit a couch in the car they have so many cute lamps, cushions and decorative pieces! Glad you like the post! Chris

    I really want those Marilyn prints!
