We’ve always been fans of design that stands the test of time, so we’ll be first in line at the next deVeres Design Auction, starting at 6pm this May 22 at their Dublin showroom. Featuring work from a number of renowned furniture designers, sculptors, ceramicists and artists, including some notable Irish creations, it’s an ideal chance to bring some design history into your own home.

The lots will be available to view from four days before the auction at deVeres, 35 Kildare street. The Design Auction catalogue is also available online, and from it, we’ve picked out some of the pieces we’ve been dreaming about.
