Design: Alisa & Lysandra

Designer guru’s Alisa & Lysandra are no strangers to our tongue & groove timber lining, and wanted to try something new with our Designer Lining range. Since winning The Block back in 2013, the design duo have been creating beautiful interiors all across Australia. This recent project was for the Saski Collection office, a recently launched luxury Activewear brand based in Queensland. The design team worked closely with client Tammy Hembrow, an Instagram entrepreneur and fitness mentor. Alisa & Lysandra moulded perfectly with the client, mirroring the brands personality. The luxurious office represents the strength and style of the both the brand and client.

Why Glosswood was chosen for this project…

Having used Glosswood in residential projects for a few years, Alisa & Lysandra have once again turned to using our beautiful timber lining (previous project here). “We really wanted to add different textures and materials to the space,” Lysandra explains. “By using features such as [Glosswood] timber, it really added a different dimension to the space.” Alisa agrees, “Glosswood was the perfect solution to adding timber elements, was easy to install and gives the space an added feature.” The design duo used our Glosswood prefinished lining boards on the feature wall in the cosy waiting area, as well as throughout the office space. “All throughout the space we wanted to keep a consistent flow,” Alisa tells us. “So [we] made sure that colour palettes, furnishings and decorating pieces were kept consistent.” 

Colour selection

Blonde timber tones have been getting a lot of attention lately. Initially Alisa & Lysandra were drawn to the Raw Paulownia as they loved the natural timber grain and honey-hues. However, during the design process the team later selected Clear Ash, as it has a beautiful Satin UV finish. The Satin UV finish is a superior coating that adds a contemporary subtle shine to the soft blonde timber. “Clear Ash just worked with all the other components of the space, and really tied the area together” the young creatives explain. The warm, natural tones of the timber provided a soft backdrop for the Saski office, and look amazing paired with the blush and gold trims.


For this unique office fit-out, they were drawn to the look of the deep-cut profile of Designer Lining. Loving the impact the profile provides, it really “added some punch” to the project. It creates leading lines within the office space, and create an amazing feature in the waiting space.

The design duo are passionate about creating spaces that outlast popular trends, and they’ve done just that with this elegant interior. The office represents the life of the brand, with contemporary finishes and a sense of feminine softness.
