Our Story

Debra established Studio Parkington on her return to South Africa in 2009 after working in London, Hong Kong and Los Angeles in Experience Design – focusing on conceptual retail experiences for global brands.

The Cape Town based interior design studio creates seamless, richly textured interiors that are in tune with their surroundings both locally and internationally. Our work is characterised by a timeless, organic modernism that pays exceptional attention to detail to evoke comfort and connection in people.

Between projects, Debra has been exploring other fields of study from traditional energy and sound healing, Eastern and Vedic geomancy and Biophilic design. Her personal and design ethos are linked, constantly evolving and founded on treading lightly, creating sustainably and sourcing consciously.

Our intention is to create strong, sculptural and beautiful spaces that seek to connect and create a balance between raw and refined. We choose to collaborate with multi-disciplined creatives and commission work with artisans to create bespoke elements that support each individual project aesthetic and vision.
