We all have our favourite shops that we return to again and again, but there’s a real joy in discovering a new gem that you know is going to become a go-to.
There are three such Irish interiors shops that you need to know about: here’s what we love about each.
Irish interior designer Eilish Rickard is bringing her experience designing beautiful homes to her online shop. It’s a gorgeous curation of items, chosen to make styling your home effortless.
Pieces include classic yet interesting items such as marble and wood cutting boards, pom-pom trimmed cushions, bronze cordless table lamps, facet-cut tinted glass vases, and playful sculptures.
You won’t find yourself scrolling through endless pages of things, just as lost as when you started. Eilish has done the hard work for you, trawling through everything out there to create a tight edit, where everything is both stylish and versatile.
Amber Clery is already well-known for her event planning and styling business Styled By Amber, but she recently decided to turn her expert eye to interiors.
Amber + Willow, named after herself and her 6-year-old daughter, offers homewares and furniture including artisan textiles, handmade pottery, a kids’ edit and unique home accessories from makers and designers around the world including Spain, Morocco, Peru, India and Indonesia.
You can pick up one-off finds as well as contemporary pieces, and the mix is perfect for a layered, interesting home.
The latest venture of the incredibly talented couple John Redmond and Karen Higgins, Ecru Studios is an online store offering both fashion and lifestyle pieces. Karen worked as a senior buyer at Brown Thomas and Arnotts for over 30 years, while John was creative director at Brown Thomas, so their combined expertise is beyond impressive.
It’s also evident in their carefully-chosen edit, full of pieces with a delightful unexpected detail, or with surprising versatility. Many brands are new to Ireland, discovered on their many buying trips abroad over the years, from refillable candles that would make divine gifts, to sculptural vessels that would add interest to any space.
