Rebekah and Timothy Cichero and Chico baby.
One Small Room was established in 2003 by stylist and creative multi-tasker Rebekah Cichero. After living in London for 8 years, studying Interior Design, travelling and working on design magazines including Elle Decoration and Living etc, Rebekah came to live in Adelaide with partner Timothy Cichero. Seeing a gap in the Adelaide design market Rebekah set up a shop like no other – One Small Room. OSR offered a curated mix of up cycled design furniture, vintage, and mid century modern, alongside designer maker pieces and homewares in an ever changing installation.
Rebekah & Timothy have been instrumental in creating the iconic ‘Queen St’ shopping strip, reviving empty shop spaces, bringing SALA to Queen St with the SALA Street Party, and collaborating on the Feast Festival on Queen St.
The business of OSR evolved offering styling and event co-ordination, along with an interior design service with architecturally trained Timothy joining forces wtih Rebekah in 2008. They have worked on both residential and commercial design projects as well as styling projects, including interior design magazines, curating art exhibitions, promotional and advertising campaigns, film industry events and the occasional nuptials celebration, as well as trend forecasting for local media.
Rebekah created Bowerbird Design Market bringing national design to South Australia promoting many local designer makers and instilling confidence in them to sell their wares to the public in an upmarket setting and within retail spaces.
