Now that it’s December, we’re officially allowed to go Christmas crazy. Eclectic new Dublin-based online homewares retailer home-lust.com has arrived just in time…
Nothing flirts with that thin line between pleasant hype and panicky hysteria quite like the build-up to Christmas, especially when it comes to gift-giving. A certain amount of frenzy is all part of the joy of the season – it wouldn’t be Christmas without some last-minute Penneys power-shopping among crazed crowds – but this year we’re planning to keep the panic stations to a minimum by sourcing thoughtful gifts online.
Mulled wine in hand, Michael Bublé crooning carols in the background, we’ll be leisurely browsing home-lust.com looking for special gifts for our loved ones. An online retailer of Scandinavian and European homewares, Dublin-based Home Lust was founded in November by a savvy team of interiors journalists and design bloggers, including a former member of the Image Interiors & Living team, Diana Nacu. Seeking to offer distinctive design pieces to Irish and European shoppers at a reasonable price point, the site boasts a considered selection of beautifully designed products from brands like Broste, Madam Stolz, HK Living, Haus and Vermissen.
Their carefully composed collections also include fair-trade products and artisan craft works from makers in Portugal, India, Morocco and Turkey, and you’re sure to find something sublime to leave under the tree for your significant other/sibling/self among their wares. We’ve already spotted five admirable items we’d love to unwrap on Christmas morning.
