Kingston Lafferty Design takes on Dublin Design Night

This past Wednesday proved to be quite an exciting evening as Dublin’s finest design and interiors shops left their doors open late to showcase their creative items.

Yelp Dublin and Image Interiors & Living curated the unique businesses for the night. The featured stores included Find, Indigo & Cloth, Jam Art Factory, Designist, Apassionata Flowers, Industry, Irish Design Shop, The Garden, and Article.

Our first stop on the design crawl was Find on Cow’s Lane.

Find’s small interior has a wonderful amalgamation of quirky goods.

Other items at Find include furniture, mirrors, retro prints, vintage clothing, and taxidermy. All the varying pieces in the shop, both old and new, are placed in an intertwining arrangement which results in a striking appearance.

The next stop on our stop was at Indigo & Cloth on Essex Street East.

Clothing at Indigo & Cloth

Indigo & Cloth is a space with many functions. Their store offers distinguished men’s clothing and accessories that is a hybrid of classic and modern. Brands you can find here include Saturdays NYC, Oliver Spencer, and Sunspel.

Studio at Indigo & Cloth

Indigo & Cloth also have a design studio where they bring innovative ideas to life. Creative processes have included design direction for THREAD magazine and brand development for Teeling Whiskey.

Cafe at Indigo & Cloth

Caffeine is also their specialty. Indigo & Cloth’s café offers the delicious pour-over method of coffee brewing alongside espresso beverages.

Our last stop was at the wonderful Industry on Drury Street.

Interior at Industry

Industry also is a space with multiple functions. Their store consists of a carefully curated collection of beautiful, industrial home-ware. Unique products include luminaries and textiles which come in a range of styles: industrial, rustic, new, and recycled.

Cafe at Industry

Industry’s café serves coffee, tea, and Middle-eastern influenced food that is both healthy and delectable. We were delighted to get to sample some of their delicious rosewater cocktails too!

Although we only got to three locations, Apassionata Flowers, Article, Designist, The Garden, Irish Design Shop, and the Jam Art Factory are on radar for future visits.

Dublin Design Night was a fabulous event that evoked plenty of interior design inspiration. It was a delightfully orchestrated evening that encouraged engagement in the creative community within Dublin. Relationships were fostered, cocktails were consumed, and Dublin design culture proved to be flourishing.
