Electrifying, vital and avant-garde – experience the colourful career of one of Australia’s first independent and most influential Australian interior designers, Marion Hall Best (1905 – 1988).
This exhibition charts her extraordinary work spanning four decades from the mid-1930s, with a display of original furniture, fabrics, furnishings and design schemes. Her interiors vibrated with bold colours and patterns and a signature of her commissioned interiors was her vibrant glazed painted finishes on walls and ceilings.
Best introduced the latest of international modernism in design to Australians through her shops in Rowe Street Sydney and Queen Street Woollahra, which were an inspiration to Australian designers. Marion Hall Best: Interiors is a travelling exhibition from Sydney Living Museums
