Tyrone Dearing directs a multi-disciplinary practice incorporating boutique interior design services that result in inspired homes for clients to live beautifully.
Working between Sydney, London and New York, Tyrone creates elegant, restrained interiors, all with a unique identity to enhance the lifestyle of each client.
In each city he is closely engaged with carefully selected artisans to fabricate his custom designs with attention to craftsmanship and detail paramount at every stage. This can range from the reconfiguration of architectural spaces to creating bespoke furniture, fittings and finishes of his design.
The hallmark of his approach is authenticity. Whether designing unique elements for a project or sourcing vintage furniture, materials rich in depth and texture are a mainstay. Time-honoured materials like bronze, pewter or nickel set against brushed oak, figured walnut or sycamore. Fabrics in hand woven wools, plush mohairs and textured linens are balanced by polished or textured plaster, travertine and limestone. Such elements together with attention to form and scale greatly contribute to the soul of an interior.
Given his prior 25 year career as one of Australia’s foremost specialist dealers in fine and rare 20th Century design, exhibiting influential figures as diverse as Josef Hoffmann, Jean-Michel Frank and Marc Newson, Tyrone Dearing applies a broad and unique overview to the field of interior design. A knowledge base not only encompassing the history of design to the present day but also its practical application - having a passionate interest and analytical approach to understanding why things work and what makes them outstanding.
