Follow your heart, trust your judgment, do it with joy. That is the motto of a prolific design duo whose every folly seems somehow pitch perfect. Sasha Titchkosky and Russel Koskela run Koskela, a Sydney-based furniture and design company whose expansive Roseberry showroom is a must-see for anyone interested in Australian modern design. Their tastes are broad, ranging from fluorescent linens and wildly striped rugs to subtle, nature-based pieces. We're very fond of the duo's satellite projects, which offer a glimpse at Koskela's impressive range: restaurant Kitchen by Mike , which shares space with the showroom, and rural hotel Dickebusch . A small sampling of the Koskela showroom range is below; online shopping to come soon. Photography by Renee Anne, except where noted. Above: Loom vintage rugs; prices start at AU $850. Above: Koskela's own Jake Chair is lightweight and sturdy, available in either fluorescent or black & white powder-coated frames (note the chair's single unpainted leg); AU $440. The PBS Table comes in several variations; AU $2580. Above: A Tili Wiru Pendant , a collaboration between Koskela and Tjanpi Desert Weavers . Each shade is unique, and prices range from AU $440 to $1590. Above: Printed Linen Cushion in pink from Melbourne-based Bonnie & Neil ; AU $120. Above: Hand carved wooden bangles by Treehorn ; from AU $450. Above: Copper Casserole Pot; AU $200. Bonnie & Neil Hand Painted Tablecloth in pink; AU $189. Above: Loom Rugs from Turkey. Some are hand woven from threads of vintage kilim rugs, others are quilted from vintage kilim pieces. Above: The Bamboo Cloche Light is available in three sizes and two colors--natural and black. Prices start at AU $209. N.B.: Traveling to Australia? See 36 of our favorite haunts in our City Guide to Australia .
