They partner with local Irish craftspeople and source from ethical suppliers globally, meaning they stock everything from hand-poured candles from Connemara to recycled oil barrel wall art from Africa.

Carpets - TC Matthews
Understanding and experience are vital when it comes to flooring. TC Matthews have over 100 years’ experience in the flooring industry and they understand what it takes to deliver quality products and a professional service. They constantly scour the market for the latest trends and because they work closely with major suppliers, they are able to give customers the best brands and widest selection at competitive prices.
They have qualified interior designers on our staff and professional fitters, meaning you are guaranteed the best service possible from start to finish. When choosing your new carpet one of the first questions to consider is, what is the main function of the room you need carpet for? If it’s for a high traffic area, like stairs, then a hard wearing carpet will be needed. Or if the room is used by children, a bleach cleanable carpet might be the best option. The best thing to do is to speak to the sales staff and tell them what room you need the carpet for.
The cost of buying new carpet can depend on the customers needs and TC Matthews always have a choice of carpets at affordable prices. You should expect to pay more for wool carpets but buying wool does pay off in the end due to its longer life span. They always make sure to have special offers on somewool carpets too so you can be guaranteed value for your money.

Shutters - Shutters of Ireland
Husband and wife duo Brendan and Bláithín Hederman set up Shutters of Ireland in 2002 and have been providing a dedicated shutter service nationwide, with an unrivalled reputation for quality, value and service.
Their hardwood shutters, inclusive of the frames, are made from timber that is harvested from sustainable, controlled forests, while their “faux” shutters are made from a “composite” material, and are best suited for areas where the shutters are exposed to high levels of moisture. they cost approximately €300 per square metre, depending on the shape you need.
Regular shaped shutters are priced on the size of the opening being dressed with shutters, regardless of panel configuration, louvre size or the style of the shutters. Special shapes are more difficult to price, and are dependent on the exact specifications required by the client, but generally we can supply a guide price for these on request, without the need for an on-site survey.
