Christian Lyon

Christian Lyon is probably my favorite Australian interior designer, and one of my all time favorites. He is based in Perth, and his work features in Vogue Living (Australia) quite often. But unfortunately he doesn’t have a website with more images. He always creates glamorous, timeless and sumptuous interiors, with usually some sort of reference to the 30’s and 40’s (my favorite era). I’ll try and find some more to share. Hope you enjoy these!

Lyon designed drinks cabinet (love it), vintage floor lamp and a Barbara Barry chair in the living room.

Australian aboriginal art hanging on the wall of the dining room. Donghia lamp sits on a 1930’s french cabinet. Lyon designed the table and chairs, which are covered in a Fortuny fabric.

More Australian aboriginal art hangs on the walls of the study/sitting room, which are upholstered in French linen. Desk and chair designed by Lyon, chair is covered in faux croc.

Bedroom walls are upholstered in the same French linen. Bed designed by Lyon, with Frette bedlinen. 1940’s Venetian glass lamps are from a Sydney antique dealers (how gorgeous are they!).
