History in the Making of Beautiful Homes

Article Dublin

Today’s introduction goes to a shop that houses as much interesting history as it does extraordinary gifts. In the thriving heart of Dublin, Article sits in a Powerscourt House that housed Richard Wingfield the 3rd in the 18th century. By 1830, this gorgeous building was sold to the government for official use and was eventually turn into a boutique shopping center in 1981.

The interior of the building still holds the charm and character it had when constructed a few centuries ago. This precise craftsmanship is still visible in the traditional Irish tendril plasterwork on the ceilings of the shop and much more of the space around.

Article shop opened in 2010 by John Adams in what used to be Wingfield’s dressing and bedroom and has been a source of inspiration to anyone who walks inside its confines. There is a wide array of carefully chosen gifts and home accessories available there and the place is bound to stun the visitors with its many details.

Last but not least, you can find contemporary British designers like Alabasta, and longside the National Gallery and V&A beautifully fitting in the displays of this shop. Some of the trays offered here are available to view on the Article Dublin website but make sure to visit 22 Powerscourt Townhouse, South William St if you find yourself near Dublin.

The Butcher’s daughter.

If you’re looking for something a little different for your table settings, our Butcher’s Daughter tablemats fit the bill. Bursting with eccentric and fun imagery, these unusual designs brim with humour and are sure to inspire a spot of table talk. The Butcher and The Butcher’s Wife designs feature a collage of quirky motifs set against a traditional chequered background. If you fancy creating a unique tabletop set, Butcher’s Daughter is also available as square drinks coasters. We also think this design works well with Nathalie’s Charcuterie Coq and Hen placemats and Deli worktop saver.

The family orientated theme is eccentric and fun – typical of Nathalie Lete’s underlying and addictive humour. Featuring the entire family from the butcher himself to his mum, dad, wife, son and daughter, these square drinks coasters make for an unusual gift, or will add a touch of eccentricity to your own table settings.

This new Avenida Home collection is available on our website and shall be showcased for the first time at Maison et Objet in Paris from 7-11 September, Hall 7, D63.

Alternatively for those living in the UK, catch the first glimpse of these products at Tent London 2012. For this first hand experience, make sure to visit us at Stand F17, Hall T1.

Striking design that brings nature indoors

As we gradually find our way into Autumn, the winds of changes remind us of the green and gracious space around us. However as the leaves start to fall down, we encourage ourselves to bring the leaves indoors and recreate what is outside. In the October 2012 issue of Homes and Gardens magazine, we see the Dill Chinoiserie by Michael Angove as a part of the accessories list inspired by sylvan scenes. Why not visit Avenida Home for Dill Chinoiserie placemats and drinks coasters.

puddin2puddin

Puddin’head have been featured on the front cover of The New Artisans: Handmade Designs for Contemporary Living by Oliver Dupon. A book that has sourced the cream of contemporary craft from all over the world.

The practice of handmade craft has undergone a huge resurgence in recent times. This book captures the new mood – a return to a preference for the unique and the artisanal. Dozens of designers and makers are featured, who use craft techniques rather than mass-production methods to create stylish, whimsical, covetable objects.

Design expert and acclaimed blogger Olivier Dupon has sourced the cream of the contemporary craft world from all over Europe, Australia and the United States. His keen eye and creative flair have led him to be featured in many style magazines. Complete with an introduction as well as the author’s personal recommendations for inspiring shops, websites and blogs to visit, this is the perfect resource for discovering unique and beautiful objects handcrafted by new, talented artisans from around the world.

Puddin’head is the creation of Richard McAdam. From early cartographers’ descriptions to the New World and its fantastic creatures to the surrealist movement’s of the subconscious imagination, Richards sources of inspiration are diverse. If there is any underlying thread in his work, it is the gentle humour that is more whimsical than hard-edged.

Anabel Cutler, Deputy Editor of Elle Decoration selected this Bluebellgray chair, crafted by Roger Lewis as one of the top things to see at TENT.

Bluebellgray is an exciting, young, Scottish textile design company specialising in the home interiors market.

The printing methods used by Bluebellgray enable every brushstroke and colour to be captured enhancing the feel of the hand painted design. The pieces have a sense of provenance and the designer behind the product, adding to the feeling of exclusivity.
