Our pick of new-in homeware to bring that spring feeling into your home

If the spring days are making you crave some freshness inside, too, take a look at these new-in offerings.

The arrival of spring is one of those things you can read a florid poem about and think, ‘yeah, it’s not that great’, but the first sunny day after a few dark, cold months is one of the best things in the world.

It gives us a new energy, making us excited for the months ahead, and their promise of days spent outside. While we’ve been making our homes as cosy as possible over the last few months, we probably want them to start feeling a little fresher now, and these new-in picks are the perfect place to start.

Mimi + Martha 

new-in homeware

Those looking to add some colour to their kitchen could do much worse than Aoife Slattery’s cheerful creations, several of which are now available at Mimi + Martha.

The brand has also teamed up with Enrich & Endure to make these beautiful linen teatowels. Available in either mint or purple, they will add a lovely spring hue.

Industry & Co

new-in homeware

If your home workspace needs a little lift, this stylish pencil holder will add some calm yet stylish functionality. And although the worst of the cold weather is (hopefully) past us, it’s not summer yet, so a lighter blanket is perfect for sitting outside on in-between days, or just as an injection of sunshine onto your sofa.

new-in homeware

With everything from furniture to kitchen accessories, the newest pieces in this range for Dunnes Stores are perfect whether you just want a little update, or want something more substantial to change things around. 

The storage bench would be especially handy in a hallway, while the tableware in deep, dappled blue would brighten up everyday meals. New pieces will continue to drop through March and April, so it’s worth checking back if there’s a particular piece you have your eye on.

April and the Bear

new-in homeware

A new print is a low-effort way to make a room feel revitalised, and this chic one would work with a range of styles.

If printing photos has been one of your lockdown projects, displaying  them is also an easy way to add some personality into a space. This bright frame is definitely a more fun option than the usual offerings.

Hen’s Teeth

@sophieloujacobsen

If you’re in the market for glassware, Hen’s Teeth have some gorgeous choices that you won’t find elsewhere. This wonderfully wavy pitcher is the work of New York-based product designer Sophie Lou Jacobsen, and would make a gorgeous centrepiece at your table, or as a vase for spring blooms.

These adorable glasses are made by Korean brand Warmgrey Tail, and it’s safe to say the hardest choice is which of the cute designs to go for.
