Not a day goes by in Avalon when i don't see Mark Tuckey in his big red vintage Truck normally with his dog in the passenger seat driving through the main intersection of Avalon (yes the one which desperately needs a roundabout!!??)

The furniture maker Mark Tuckey (www.marktuckey.com.au) and his beautiful wife Luella live nearby in Claireville and have their Sydney furniture shop in Newport (303 Barrenjoey Rd) and their Homewares shop in Avalon (shop 11/20 Avalon Pde) which happens to be next door to my regular coffee jaunt Frank's Bar.

I have long admired Mark Tuckey's furniture for it's clean lines and organic shapes and they are also stockists of Jardan couches (www.jardan.com.au) which i am desperately coveting for Paddo's new living area so i decided to swing by their Newport store last week to have a closer squizz and boy was i impressed - i could have bought the whole shop out!!

 

Mark and Luella at their new Homewares store in Avalon

 

An image from the couples home home in Claireville - the couple have amazing style - their girls even have a Bromley hanging in their room!

 

Their kitchen/dining room..love the round table..

 

Mark Tuckey Newport, Sydney Showroom

 

Collection of Jardan 'Coast' sofa's - if it wasn't for the hefty price tag i would buy them all!

 

And the seriously good looking Jardan 'Nook' sofa

 

Those legs on the 'Nook'!!

 

These solid pine stools/side tables look so cute with these cushions on top! Will most likely buy one or two of these for Paddo Living Room as we are a little tight on space so don't think i will be able to fit a big coffee table in front of the couch

 

Also considering this bigger version of the solid pine side table - would be great as a bed side table as well

 

This table was made famous in last year's season of the block where Katrina and Amy used a larger version of this as their coffee table (they may have blown their whole week's budget on this table - hope they got mate's rates!)

 

They have an amazing range of Thonet Bentwood chairs - love these colours!

 

Then again you can't go past classic white..

 

Am also loving these 'utility chairs'

 

Am also going to pick up some of their coloured 'baker's tray's' - make a great table feature

 

Just the challenging decision of which colour??!

 

They also have a good selection of colourful pendant lights - they stock the French lighting brand J'ielde which i love

 

These pendants would look great over a kitchen bench or a dining table like this one

 

Am also loving these shelving units..(and gosh the more i look at those round coffee tables the more i want them)

 

I thought my mind was made up on the natural pine stools then i saw these painted ones that can be painted in any Dulux colour...tempting yes especially in that red/orange colour as we have a navy blue rug for the new Paddo living room this colour would go perfectly

 

Love the Bromley butterflies!

 

And these gorgeous etchings..ok focus Heidi we are shopping for furniture!!

 

Most of Mark Tuckey's furmiture is custom made with a large selection of Hardwood's and finishes to choose from and it's all handmade in Melbourne

 

Those stools!!

 

With all the colour to choose from its still hard to go past the gorgeous finish of solid pine wood..
