We took a wander around the new Michael Murphy Home Furnishings Blanchardstown showroom and selected a few of our favourite pieces

We took a wander around the new Michael Murphy Home Furnishings Blanchardstown showroom and selected a few of our favourite pieces

At the beginning of November, Michael Murphy Home Furnishings cut the ribbon on the entrance to their new Blanchardstown Centre showroom, and revealed a cleverly thought-out space with distinct room sets in bold colour palettes.

There, savvy shoppers are finding a carefully curated selection of sofas, cabinets, shelvings and dining furniture sitting alongside embellished cushions, elegant rounded mirrors and plush pile rugs, and to celebrate the opening, we took a mosey around to select a few of our favourites from the Irish-owned store.

This Tilden desk looks even better in person. Fitting snuggly against a wall its sleek proportions make it ideal for a small space where it’ll almost disappear until you need a space to work at, and the high shelving is an added bonus.

If you’re looking for clean lines in your furniture, look no further than this plush Rose armchair. The mid-century shape is offset by the space age wooden legs and navy velvet upholstery.

Rose Armchair, €349, Michael Murphy Blanchardstown

Ideal as a coffee table or as a low side table next to a sofa or chair, this oval piece is simple yet striking in its design. Made of Indian rosewood, it’s hardy too and, complemented with its classic style, will last you through the years.

I think we can all admit green is having a moment. As grey hues start to drift out of fashion, earthy tones are coming to the fore, and none more so than natural greens, which merge beautifully with deep reds and browns as well as bright yellows. This is all beautifully combined in the muted yet warm fabric of this Brady armchair.

When it comes to artwork, you should always go for the piece that grabs you. And this ‘Neptune’ wall piece certainly caught our attention, its swirling lines emphasised with reflective golden layers.

Pale blue on one side and navy on the other, this adaptable pillow would look as inviting on a dressed bed as it would on a sofa or armchair.
