About us


Penny Farthing Design House is a gallery that specialises in limited edition prints and an exclusive collection of Max Dupain images. We also source treasures from artists and artisans from across the globe. 

Penny Farthing collaborates with a unique community of artists to produce a curated collection of accessible and desirable art. 

The name ‘Penny Farthing’ is inspired by Noel Smith, my grandfather, who was a passionate entrepreneur. He had a larger-than-life personality and a passion for living. It was in the last few days of his life that he had a strong vision for an artwork of a Penny Farthing. Naturally, when my sister Alice and I decided to start an online art gallery, the name was a given. It is a constant memory of a man who lived large. 

Art should have an effortless charm that inspires beautiful interiors.

Happy space making!
