Discover her vibrant furniture, fabrics, furnishings and design schemes as Marion Hall Best specialist and exhibition curator Michael Lech (Sydney Living Museums) and NWM’s Senior Curator, Dr Luke Keogh take you on a 30 minute tour of the exhibition, followed by lunch!

Electrifying, vital and avant-garde, this exhibition charts the colourful career of one of Australia’s first independent and most influential Australian interior designers, Marion Hall Best (1905 – 1988).

Experience her work, which spanned 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.
