The latest interior design picks from the RTÉ Guide.
If you're looking for an original gift idea, these frames from Memory Lane Frames are just the thing. It’s a Co Meath based company set up by Sadhbh Smith, a busy mother of three, almost two years ago.
She makes personalised gift frames for all occasions along with some prints, wooden keepsakes and personalised candles, and continues to expand her range. You can view her products at memorylaneframes.com.
Judging by the lines we saw outside IKEA when it reopened, it’s safe to say that Irish people are big fans of the Swedish retailer.
This August, their new range is about making a creative restart. It can be about combining things in a fresh way and making rooms flexible and multifunctional.
The colour palette is neutral, with pastels thrown in for a twist. Patterns range from modern graphics to traditional florals.
Their long-standing IVAR storage system sees some additions to the range that include mesh cabinets and bamboo doors.
The new collection also offers a super-comfortable sofa, a dining table and two lampshades designed in a modern and traditional style.
Of course, there are also smaller accessories like pots, vases and cushion covers.
