South African based Interior Designer, Derrick Tabbert is the Managing Director of Tabbert Interior Consultants. He focuses on high end residential and hospitality projects, both locally and internationally.

Often described as offbeat or eclectic, Derrick’s work is very client-specific, yet all his projects have one thing in common: raw originality.

After Derrick completed a 3-year National Diploma at Wits Tech in 1993, he decided to broaden his horizons and complete a BA Degree in Interior Design at Napier University, Edinburgh.

He returned to South Africa in 1997 to lecture in Interior Design before joining Kim H in 2000, where he would later become a partner and Design Director. Today, Derrick’s extensive Design and Conceptual studies underpin his refreshing, unexpected design aesthetic.

Derrick is constantly amazed and inspired by his home country – specifically the vibrant, underlying energy of it’s nature and culture – but often succumbs to his wanderlust, visiting trade shows where possible to keep his finger on the pulse. He also devours design blogs and constantly researches global trends.
