Bringing Design to Life

Well-considered design isn’t just about what you see. It pays close attention to how it makes you feel. With an intrinsic sense of design and a good eye for detail, Creative Director, Anthony Spon-Smith has channelled his talent into product design with the mission to enrich lives with pieces inspiring an emotional connection.

“For me, the most important thing about design is how it makes you feel, and we try to engrain that throughout our DNA at Coco Republic.”

Anthony has been in the furniture industry for over 30 years. His passion and extensive knowledge of the industry have allowed him to design products with visual and memorable impact.  
We believe our homes are the pinnacle of self-expression, with the pieces we select a true reflection of our essence. Anthony’s designs are simple, unique and sophisticated, sometimes unexpected, realising luxury through craftsmanship, quality and longevity.

Growing up in Australia, Anthony’s designs are greatly inspired by the natural and rugged coastal landscape. Design should work in unity with the environment and setting it is intended for, complementing the diversity of the land in which it exists. Australia is known globally for its easy-going and relaxed culture, values often associated with a Californian way of living. This connection opens the dialogue between furniture, architecture and the natural environment and has shaped our world of effortless luxury nurturing those who seek a well-designed life.  

The recent collection launched in line with the creative concept, a Golden State of Mind, has really facilitated this idea of furniture existing in harmony with nature. Experimentation with natural materials, stones and texture has cultivated this ethos. This creative concept has been a major stepping-stone for Coco Republic, introducing a new direction and supporting the US expansion. The golden hues of the campaign pay homage to the Californian landscape.
