Best Shops: visual delights catch the eye
Visual merchandising has captured readers’ imagination in the Best Shops 2016
Objekt, Newcastlewest, Co Limerick: clever, unusual accessories, according to one reader
Already best visual merchandising has captured readers’ imagination far more than that best shop window category did last year. Here’s some of the early entries.
Interior architect Aoife Hayes is behind Objekt, in Newcastlewest, Co Limerick, which stocks Missoni Home, Kartell and Callegaris. It also serves coffee and has recently added a wine licence to the mix so you can enjoy a glass of wine with your consultation. Reader Patrica McKenna thinks this shop deserves an award for the quality of its contemporary design furniture and furnishings, and its visual merchandising. She discovered it last summer and was “blown away by it! It is on the site of an old mill on the road out of the NCW to Killarney. The shop stocks clever, unusual accessories. At my own request, I was given a Christmas present of some ‘artificial flowers.’ The only resemblance they have to flowers is a head and a stem. The colours and forms of the heads are completely different! A great space and a great buyer!”
