JUST ARRIVED! . Have I ever been this excited about a new product? No, defiantly not! We are so happy to say the beautiful, fragrant and just plain scrummy bluebell crop candle has arrived! . At the beginning of the lockdown we had a competition and asked all our lovely customers and followers to come up with THE best scent of an Irish summer. The competition was Strong but in the end you all voted for bluebells. Since then Lucy Hegarty of the amazing @labougiecandles has been working away in her studio creating this very special, limited batch EXCLUSIVE to Designist. . We are open Tuesday-Saturday until 5pm with a protected appointment only hour between 10.30-11.30am each weekday. Sundays we are open 12-4pm.

Looking to bring a bit of pizzazz to that glass of whiskey? These whiskey glasses have a conical shaped bottom meaning they gently rock your fav. tipple as it sits on the table.

And if you are looking for the perfect read to go with your drink then ‘from barley to blarney’ ticks all the boxes, as the lads from the dead rabbit bring us on the ultimate tour of whiskey distilleries in Ireland.

We have had a little restock of our books in the last few days. If you are looking at expanding your ideas and words, you will find lots of choice here.
