Australian House & Garden - - INSIDER -

Over­see­ing a three-gen­er­a­tion fam­ily busi­ness in an­tique and con­tem­po­rary rugs, Bob shares an apart­ment on Syd­ney’s eastern beaches with his part­ner, Gaye Wee­den, Bob’s son Jared and Gaye’s son Char­lie. Their home is re­plete with great rugs, art­work and arte­facts col­lected over a life­time of travel to fas­ci­nat­ing lo­ca­tions.

MY FAVOURITE THINGS

Sofa A Wal­ter Knoll piece from Liv­ing Edge. Cush­ions (on sofa) These are an­tique Cau­casian soumak-weave kilim cush­ions. Ta­ble An old Turk­ish tea ta­ble with mother-of-pearl in­lay. Chair French Pro­vin­cial an­tique. Framed art­work A vin­tage French poster. Ot­toman (far right) Orig­i­nally a Per­sian tribal stor­age bag. Floor cush­ion I bought this old Kur­dish rug from the eastern Turk­ish town of Malatya in the 1980s and had it made into a cush­ion. Rugs The base rug is a piece from Cadrys Per­sian Aleph col­lec­tion, a flat­wo­ven kilim of hand­spun wool, goat’s hair and cot­ton. Lay­ered on top is an an­tique Khotan rug which came from the fa­mous oa­sis stop on the Silk Road.

MY HOME IS…

A true re­flec­tion of my per­son­al­ity. The pieces that fill it are per­sonal re­minders of great me­mories, sto­ries and tra­di­tions. They im­bue my home with a sense of com­fort and in­ter­est.

WHAT ‘HOME’ MEANS TO ME

It’s where you feel nur­tured and com­fort­able, a place that’s full of happy me­mories.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MY SUB­URB

As a keen surfer, the lo­ca­tion is un­sur­passed. I al­ways feel like I’m on hol­i­day here. Plus the cafes and restau­rants are some of the best in Syd­ney.

FAVOURITE LO­CAL HAUNTS

For eat­ing out, I’d say the clas­sic Sean’s Pa­naroma, then North Bondi Fish and Lox Stock & Bar­rel. For clothes, Jac+Jack. cadrys.com.au
