Áras is a range of homewares designed and made exclusively for Irish Design Shop. We are working with skilled designers and makers across Ireland to produce an ever growing collection of affordable and innovative products for every day use.
Irish Design Shop feel strongly that exclusive doesn’t mean exclusionary, our range of exclusives are simply a development of an on-going relationship with makers in response to what we feel our customers are looking for. They are everyday designs to be celebrated for their function and form, because the everyday deserves to be treasured too.
Áras usually refers to a house of special importance. To each of us that describes our own home, big or small (the irish for apartment or flat is árasán). Such a familiar word appealed to us while naming our homewares brand as it is easily recognisable & pronounceable. Most synonymous with (being) the president’s home, it is where Ireland puts its best foot forward, which in a way is what we aim to do with this collection.
