I went down to the Interior Design show at the RDS yesterday. I was quite impressed by many of the stalls. There were a few there that looked like they threw as much of their store into their section as they could possibly fit, but for the most part, most of the companies had well presented areas.
One furniture designer in particular caught our attention. John Lee from Co. Kildare makes bespoke wooden pieces of sheer brilliance. The pictures really don't do them justice at all. I love the massive amounts of legs on some of the tables. They look sort of African but quite bizarre as well, like something out of a Tim Burton movie. You could almost imagine them walking away like giant wooden caterpillars...or maybe that's just me. You can check out more of his work here
