From a successful clothing label to an interior design business, Annabelle Peters is turning heads with her quirky creations.
November 7th, 2008
Melbourne-based designer Annabelle Peters has just made the leap from the fashion realm into the world of interior product design.
Peters, one half of the duo behind boutique clothing label Sisnme, has made the change in the hope of finding new life in her edgy designs.
“I see interiors as a direct extension of fashion,” Peters says, “however you are dressing a house instead of a person.”
For her first venture into interior product design, Peters has taken the unconventional step of creating a lighting range out of found objects. With a keen eye for colour and quality, she scours junk shops and markets for items to use in her lighting collection, ‘The Skewer Light’.
For Peters, part of the joy of ‘The Skewer Light’ is its ability to evoke stories and emotion. “It is a very time consuming process,” she says. “I am very passionate and fussy.”
Having just recently purchased her first home, Peters feels this is a signpost in a new era of her working life. “As I have grown older my interests have translated from fashion to interiors. I guess this is a natural progression.”
