Step Into A Magical Christmas With Makers & Brothers At Home

See More Photos
We’re already pretty overwhelmed by the constant Christmas shopping pressure thrust upon us every day. Between the pre-Christmas sales, the post-Christmas sales, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s all become a bit much, and the love of shopping has somewhat been lost. Wouldn’t it be nice if, at such a hectic time of year, we could enjoy a relaxing, laid-back shopping environment in which fellow shoppers aren’t passive aggressively shoving elbows into sides as they race towards the tills?

Well, you’re in luck. You’re in particularly good luck if you’re after interiors-themed gifts luxe skincare and more. A new chapter for Irish company Makers & Brothers has launched just this week and we are VERY excited to share it with you. Brace yourself for some major house envy as you step into their pop-up home, where you can shop your favourite Makers & Brothers brands in the environments where the products belong. So instead of choosing from a collection of mass-produced soft furnishings in a warehouse, see first-hand how your purchases will look at home. Apart from their unique curation of the most lust-worthy treats we’ve ever laid eyes on (check out our Instagram pics for a taster of what’s in store), there’s a wealth of festive experiences to be enjoyed with Makers & Brothers At Home too, making it even more magical.

Brass candle holders and fluffy cushions. Send for back up, at risk of spending entire paycheck on soft furnishings. #makersandbrothers @makersandbrothers #home #interiors

Open every weekend from the 28th of November ’til Christmas Eve, they’ll have in-store events aplenty, fires lighting, coffees and treats from Bibi’s Kitchen and more. As perhaps their most ambitious retail event to date, visitors will receive a warm welcome from the M&B team into this fairytale Georgian conversion, located just a few minutes outside of Blackrock. If it’s a more quiet, relaxed and human approach to Christmas you’ve been longing for, this is your perfect escape. We’d trade crowded shopping centres and racing pulses for this any day.
