Salute the season with the evocative new collection from Meadows & Byrne, featuring three magnificent moods: Classic Christmas, Celestial and Nordic Lodge. 

Mix Metals

Create the perfect modern mood with the introduction of glinting, burnished metals. And, there’s no need to restrict yourself to one scheme – a blend of gold, silver, copper and bronze will add extra layers of warmth and interest.

White Christmas 

Capture the snug magic of a Scandi-inspired Christmas with tactile cushions, natural wood, and simple all-white decorations from the Nordic Lodge collection. The addition of warm, champagne-coloured tree lights will complete the winter wonderland feel.

Add Height

Add drama to your mantelpiece by placing pillar candleholders of various heights in among a garland of draped festive foliage. Dot in some twinkling festive votives for added convivial cheer.

Create Calm Corners

Set the scene for peace and joy by making room for quiet corners, curated with one single focus feature, such as this beautiful Magnolia wreath, below, complemented by a small group of Scandi-inspired candles and ornaments.

Raise The Festive Bar

The Celestial Christmas collection, which includes this stunning Corkside copper canteen, below, exudes sophistication and luxury. Add a dirty martini (or two) to the mix and serve to guests in elegant stemmed glassware.
