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.
