Tell us what inspires you to keep creating, designing and growing your business?

I feel very fortunate to have a career that I enjoy. Design is in principal about problem solving and each day presents a new challenge which always leads me down a new path. I am constantly inspired by my clients and likeminded creatives and seeing a project completed and clients happy, is very satisfying.


After 15 years in the business, can you give our readers any tips on how to maintain and create such a wonderful career?

It is important to work for a number of different design firms, I have been fortunate to work for four in my time and they were all completely different in their design culture. As sole Director of Fiona Lynch I really do have to think about the type of office environment I want to work in as this will then flow onto how my designers feel. Working in an environment where you feel happy, included and challenged is vital. Every Tuesday I try to bring something in that I am excited about whether it’s a book about an artist or an amazing interior that I have seen on a blog or magazine.


Tell us about your Fields rug collection and the Shard collection which launches later this year.

Fields is a collaboration with Tretford who make the goat hair product. The Fields collection is our first collection of goat-haired rugs exploring geometric patterns. Assembled locally in Australia from a goat-hair product imported from Ireland. The patterns play on colour field painters like Barnett Newman and explore a strong use of colour. We are thrilled to have them stocked both in Melbourne (Angelucci  http://angelucci.net.au/contact/ ) and Koskela (http://www.koskela.com.au ).


What is a good tip when choosing a rug?

Colour is really important – I am drawn to colour combinations that are a little off key like ochre, emerald green and cream as seen in yet to be launched Shard range.
