Trending . . . Popping up
Award-winning Bethan Gray is just one of many top designers on show at Maoliosa Murray’s (087- 9114946; maoliosa.com) pop-up shop at Ebony and Co, 39 Upper Fitzwilliam Street, Dublin 2. Brogue (right) is a three-legged chair from Gray’s GT collection that champions the detailing on traditional Irish footwear and is in part inspired by a visit to view the traditional furniture on display at the museum of country life at Turlough Park in Castlebar. The pop-up is in situ until January 5th and includes furniture by Jonathan Adler and David Linley, wall hangings by Diane von Furstenberg, Kelly Wearstler and Paul Smith, and black skull cushions by Alexander McQueen.
Woodloc is your oyster
Upgrade the look of your home with wide-plank Kahrs engineered wood flooring: ideal if you’re installing underfloor heating. The company’s Woodloc system means the flooring is less likely to bow, warp or buckle during changes of temperature.
This Oyster oak has a hand-scraped, -bevelled and -brushed natural oil finish that gives it a lived-in, worn surface. The pale-coloured stain creates a sense of light and warmth.
The Oyster can be purchased at a discount of 30 per cent by Irish Times readers on presentation of today’s paper (€76.41 per metre, reduced from €109.16 per metre). This offer is valid from today until December 13th inclusive, while stocks last, at Tile Style (01-855 5200; tilestyle.ie), on Ballymount Road Upper, Dublin 24.
