Take a look at all the wonderful Irish design talent we'll be honouring at the 2019 Design Awards this Thursday, September 12.
Ireland is renowned for its creative and craft scene. Our little isle has a vibrant kaleidoscope of traditional skills, modern technology and artistic endeavour and that's what we aim to celebrate at the Image Interiors & Living Design Awards sponsored by Signature Collection by Dulux. From hand-loomed textiles and the finest Irish-made mattress to slick glassware and unusual weaves, there is a plethora of talent on show.
In fact, we'll be presenting this talent at the awards with an exhibit area dedicated to the incredible work of our nominees. So if you've already got your tickets for this year's iteration in Fire restaurant, all you need to do now is familiarise yourself with the rest of the exclusive guest list and get ready to salute this deep pool of Irish talent.
