Featured Designer – Black & Spiro


Black & Spiro logo

Black and Spiro Interior Design is one of Australia’s leading interior design studios. Brisbane based Interior Designer Anna Spiro heads up her team of six, working from her delightful premises in New Farm, Brisbane.

For over a decade Anna has guided and managed her successful interior design business, Black and Spiro. More recently Anna has released, in partnership with her brother Sam Spiro, her new range of fabrics – Anna Spiro Textiles. The Range reflects Anna’s great affection and appreciation of the tropics of Hawaii and its vibrant living colours.

Colour and its application are the hallmarks of Anna’s extraordinary yet tasteful designs. Adventurous, yet respectful, Anna has created a unique style that is instantly recognisable. Distinguished yet utilising a wonderful spectrum of patterned fabrics, antique furniture and carefully selected art.

Anna is about life, vibrancy, creating homes and places reflective of her clients’ lives and what it is they love. It is a passion, yet a passion with discipline, with an eye for both detail and overall finish.

As a young Interior Designer, Anna spent considerable time under the tutelage of old school Brisbane Interior Decorator John Black, forming a partnership, Black and Spiro in the year 2000. A decade ago it was time for Anna to launch independently and the original partnership with John Black was dissolved. Anna continued to run her own business out of the same delightful New Farm premises under the original Black and Spiro name developing a loyal following, first in Brisbane and South East Queensland and then Nationally. The team manage a variety of projects in the areas of residential, retail and high end hospitality.

Fabric is in fact Anna’s passion and here we feature some Wills Furniture pieces, some prepared with Anna’s fabric selections, in a variety of settings.

The sofas featured are both the Clivedon. As can be seen this delightful sofa lends itself to a variety of applications and fabric choices. A classic Edwardian inspired design with clean lines, an upholstered square back and square fitted arms. Polished legs with brass castors and seat cushions in feather wrapped foam make for a comfortable and stylish furniture classic.

The Ottoman pictured is custom designed and as can be seen fits perfectly with the Clivedon Sofa.

In a few weeks time we will again feature a Black & Spiro project currently going to press for a well known magazine. It features the Sheffield Sofa and Cordoba Arm Chairs in Anna’s signature style.
