DUST: Dublin's Newest Interiors Shop
Following two successful pop-up shops late last year, design duo Lisa Marconi and Sarah Drumm have setup shop in a permanent premises on Dublin’s Grantham Street, offering shoppers ‘the unusual, the beautifully formed and the surprising’. I went to explore what DUST was all about…
They say it’s a wonderful thing when a passion and a career come together. So when a friendship founded on a shared appreciation for design, in turn allows two passionate interior designers to merge their career paths, this must be a recipe for something exciting. And so it was. DUST is Dublin’s newest interiors and lifestyle shop founded by interior designers Lisa Marconi and Sarah Drumm. Housing unique and eye-catching items sourced from around the world DUST demonstrates all that is good about eclecticism in an energetic, fun and carefully researched manner.
Wall-mounted unicorns, striking light fittings and vividly coloured accessories are set against deep blue farrow and ball painted walls, contrasted by a green feature wall showcasing wallpaper by Dutch design house Studio Job. A small room on the second floor is dedicated entirely to a stunning collection of faux flowers, which only for the lack of fragrance could convince even the most established florist.
While the products are mostly high end, like for example the uber chich Missoni fabric and lighting range (not be found anywhere else in Ireland), unsurprisingly the prices are not cheap, but shoppers on a modest budget, rest assured, you won't have to go home empty handed. i bought a set of concrete pained coasters by Ail and El for €25, an aquamarine soap for €23 and 3 pink vases at €4.95 each.
DUST definitely has something to offer homeowners and designers looking to add interest, originality and that je ne s’ai quo we all crave.
