History in the Making of Beautiful Homes

Sunday 21 October 2012 by ISABEL

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.

Therein lies a beautiful experience, a midst the green meadows of York.

In the countryside of North Yorkshire in the small market town of Ripon, there exists a beautiful gallery known as Hornseys Gallery, currently managed by Daniel Hornsey, a second generation of this successful familly run business. Hornseys houses a well edited selection of unusual gifts to suit most pockets and occassions.

If there is also an opportunity for you to move a few miles away from Ripon, you will find our products in the gorgeous hall and garden of Eden some may call the Newby Hall.

Explore the Watermill – the UK’s Independent Bookshop of the Year – and lose yourself in the gift shop next door

Jayne and Kevin Ramage had a vision to create a place that inspires. They succeeded in the proceedings and in doing so, they have helped many visitors dreams come true as well. If you have the opportunity to visit this beautiful spot and experience the Watermill first hand, you will not be disappointed as it has got to be one of the most relaxing and pleasant spaces I have visited for some time!

Books, music, an art gallery, coffee, lunch and cakes are all housed in the beautiful restored Watermill building and as a bonus for those unique gift seekers, there is Homer, the gift shop next door. Situated in the barn next door to the mill, this shop sells design-led homewares and accessories and with the creative horizons of Jayne Ramage, it manages to host an array of contemporary Scottish designs sitting cheek by jowl with vintage pieces from far-flung corners of Europe.

The award winning, design led department store in the heart of Bath that never ceases to impress

The round 49 cm Ary Tray designed by Alabasta is without a doubt, the eye catching spot on this inspiring window display at Rossiters of Bath.

The 20×27 cm small tray featured as a part of the display is also from the Alabasta Blue Fish collection by Ary Trays. This is the alternative handy choice that fits perfectly those two intimate cups of tea and their accompanying biscuits.
