We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with iconic Australian furniture designer, Mark Tuckey.
Clean, uncomplicated, and modern, the Mark Tuckey style is often mimicked but never replicated.
The signature look got its start in Melbourne in 1990 when Tuckey opened Ancient Modes – the first iteration of his furniture brand. Coming into its own, the brand was renamed and self-titled in 2006 – launching many of the silhouettes Mark Tuckey is now famous for. With a workshop in Thornbury, Mark Tuckey makes pieces focused on quality and form. Tuckey loves furniture crafted from solid timber, as it can be sanded back and refinished again and again, ensuring your pieces can be loved for years to come.
This same ethos inspired our collaboration; a focus on solid timber furniture, Australian designs, and a commitment to FSC-certified materials. Extending the reach of the famous Tuckey look, Mark Tuckey x Adairs gives everyone the opportunity to own a piece of iconic Aussie style.
Crafted from solid European Ash timber, the Slat Console Table is totally timeless and made to last.
Perfect for any home – especially modern or industrial-styled spaces – the black version of this classic Mark Tuckey Slat Bedside Table is a twist on a classic.
The classic Tuckey style is all about balance. With an emphasis on timber, his interior style uses varied materials to create visual interest. Style your Mark Tuckey x Adairs pieces with homewares made from metal, ceramic, and glass, to allow the timber furniture to have its moment in the spotlight.
The gorgeous Slat design is a perfect example of the Mark Tuckey aesthetic; the parallel lines of solid European Ash exemplify the artisanship of the range. In homage to one of his most popular silhouettes, the Mark Tuckey x Adairs Slat has similar lines to the famous Cog table – but with space between each piece of timber for a lighter, airy feel.
With studios in both Melbourne and Byron Bay, Mark Tuckey designs are effortlessly Australian, creating pieces that suit any space – whether it be beachy or urban. Our collaboration features beautiful blonde woods with a natural finish, that look especially good in homes with light colour schemes. The Slat Oak Sideboard will add a Byron feeling to coastal and scandi styled spaces. Embracing that industrial, bold feeling Melbourne is famous for, the black versions of each piece add a modern moodiness that suits any home.
Possibly Mark Tuckey’s most iconic design, we naturally had to include the Egg Cup Side Table in our collaboration. Crafted from metal for Mark Tuckey x Adairs, this style looks absolutely perfect with your other timber furniture pieces. Instantly recognisable as a Tuckey piece, the smooth lines and solid construction keep this side table totally timeless. We love it as an accent piece in the living room, or in place of a bedside table in the bedroom.
Along with his furniture collection, the Mark Tuckey x Adairs collaboration features a stunning range of bedlinen and accessories. The Mark Tuckey brand has long had a focus on sustainability and ethically sourced materials, which is why our cushions, bedlinen, and throws are crafted from hemp. Hemp requires 50% less water to grow than cotton and is stronger and more durable than most other materials – meaning you won’t need to replace your sheets nearly as often.
We’re thrilled to be partnering with the much-loved Australian designer Mark Tuckey. We’ve worked together to create an ongoing line featuring all the hallmarks of his work – clean, uncomplicated and modern designs.
Our hemp cushions and throws make luxurious yet liveable staple pieces for your home. Mix and match solid colours in earthy tones with a statement check pattern. For warmth and texture, add a beautiful yarn-dyed check blanket in grey and navy, made from the finest Australian lambswool.
