Como by Design is the brainchild of Tigger Hall, a leading light of the Australian Interior Design industry. Tigger’s aim is to bring the design community together in a celebration of creativity, and to create a platform to showcase the unique and bespoke talents in Melbourne.
'Predominantly we are about decorating in its current perception, promoting the face of interior decoration in a new realm; about good design, longevity, supporting artisans and artists, educating the general public on the use of textiles, on the craft and the longevity of beautiful bespoke pieces of furniture; pushing a strong design element'.
The Seminars running for three days will give a voice to these talents.
Como by Design will run from Friday 19th – Sunday 21st October 2018. The event will open with a press morning on Thursday 18th October 2018. A silent auction of the items selected by the designers from their rooms will run the duration of the event.

With over ten years’ experience in Interior Design, Rebecca is known for effortlessly combining crisp, clean architecture with thoughtful, detailed and tightly resolved interior solutions which have been described as “cool and off-beat…”. The studio’s aesthetic and idiosyncratic designs are based on an holistic approach to design that includes everything from spatial planning; joinery detailing; to lighting, fabrics, furnishings and accessories. Rebecca combines this with a love of contemporary art to create casually elegant spaces that are personal and very liveable. She has built a sound reputation as a highly versatile and maverick designer, whose work is tailored to the needs of each client and project.
Q. What is one design element that is a must in your work?
A. Natural materials are a non-negotiable for me…I like to incorporate natural textures in all our projects – timber, metals, stone, cottons, linen and wool. Materiality is key in design.
Q. Who or what are some of your main influences?
A. My main influences in design have come not from other designers so much, but from the natural environment. I love nothing more than escaping to the wilderness and dream of a remote cabin in the Tasmanian highlands. Having said that…Kelly Wearstler, David Hicks (the British) and BKH (Burley Katon Halliday) were early influences and of course style icons.
Q. What is something people don't know about you?
A. Something most people don’t know is that Design is my third career (short attention span…) my first degree was in Medicine, specifically Haematology. It’s been a winding road.
