Rebekah and Timothy Cichero and our Chico baby.
One Small Room was established in 2003 by stylist and creative multi-tasker Rebekah Cichero after returning from living in London for 8 years where Rebekah studied Interior Design and worked on magazines including Elle Decoration and Living etc while partner Timothy worked in investment banking.
OSR (for short) opened it’s doors in a quirky, somewhat forgotten about suburban street in Croydon, Adelaide, offering a edited and curated mix of upcycled vintage, mid century modern, and designer maker furniture and homewares – from a rug on the floor to art on the wall.
OSR soon grew from one small room and expanded into three small rooms creating a unique concept store for the design oriented who crave pieces away from the mainstream.
The business 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 event styling.
Over the years, OSR created a textile business, established Bowerbird Bazaar (Adelaide’s Design Market), curated art exhibitions, art classes, styled for interior design magazines, promotional and advertising campaigns, film industry events and the odd engagement party and wedding as well as trend forecasting for local media.
Needing more space, in 2013 OSR opened a storage showroom just down the road in an old church hall where internationally sourced pieces and the OSR Industry design range can be viewed by appointment.
Celebrating 14 years in 2017, is there a new direction in the pipeline for OSR? oh yes there is! Soon we will launch Pumpt – Indoor Ride Park. www.pumpt.com.au (watch this space)
