House of Slim at its core, is a considered and intimate furniture brand.
“We set out to create a small line which worked in with artisans and natural elements, with a key focus on designing pieces that could be enjoyed in the home beyond one generation.”
In a time where mass consumption is overwhelmingly prominent, we wanted to offer a different shopping approach for the home - investing in pieces that would last the years.
“Personally, at my mums house we still have ageless statement pieces passed down from my grandparents that I plan on sharing with my children - continuing the story and love shared over the decades.”
House of Slim was shaped to continue this mindset.
Creative Director, Holly Chippindale
For the last 5 years, Holly has travelled the world for her work as a Content Manager, Super 8 Videographer and Film enthusiast within the fashion industry. Her travels saw her jet-set from the Italian Riviera, to the French Countryside, to the retro Mexican seaside town of Acapulco and more - where she has been continuously inspired by the unique cultures, locations and interiors she had the pleasure of capturing throughout her career.
Interiors have always been at the forefront of her life. Her grandparents fell in love and packed up their lives to start a Wallpaper and Interior Decorating showroom in the 70s, with her mum continuing and growing the showroom to what it is today. 3 generations later, the ties to curating a space dive deeper than simply a visual lever; interiors are now a connection and legacy Holly is ready to follow.
Australian born and raised, Holly’s aesthetic is minimalistic, tonal and rustic, nodding to her love of island escapes. Growing up in Australia, Holly took a leap of faith and moved her life to Bali, Indonesia in 2016 which has furthered her desire to live a down-to-earth and balanced life.
Managing Director, Tyler O’Neill
A surf traveller at heart, Tyler spent his years seeking out surf breaks around the world. Travel brought Tyler and Holly together, forging a bond during a trip to Panama and Costa Rica. Months later, Tyler packed up his board bag and moved from his small town of Cabarita to Bali. Since, he has worked in up-market surf resorts in the Northern Indonesian archipelago, where he has nurtured his desire for simple living; barefoot by the sea.
After spending 10 years in different aspects of the building industry through Australia, Indonesia and Japan, he is now transferring these skills in to the design and manufacturing aspect of House of Slim.
