Marion Hall Best: Interiors
Now On Tour

Marion Hall Best: Interiors colourfully charts the work of Marion Hall Best (1905-1988), one of Australia’s first and most influential independent interior designers, displaying original furniture, fabrics, furnishings and design schemes.

Best’s career spanned four decades from the mid–1930s, a period of transition from the department store decorators and art furnishers of the 1920s, to the independent professional designers of today. 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 the local design profession.

Complimenting the Marion Hall Best: Interiors exhibition will be a free, drop in activity MAKE SPACE called ❤ Colour. Venture into the wild world of bold and bright colours inspired by the interior designs of Marion Hall Best. There will be activities for audiences of all ages including creating brightly coloured circular sculptures, paper origami lamp shades and interior design objects, spin a giant colour wheel chart, and designing your own colourful patterns, designs and logos.
