Wish list: DFS sofa

Esther N McCarthy digs some retro vibes, hails the love affair between form and function and gives a shout out to our feathered friends.

Wish list: DFS sofa

Check out the Barton from DFS, with teal tones, curved lines and angled feet – there’s an understated retro vibe going on. It comes in a choice of, count them – 12 – colours and they’ll very kindly throw in free accent scatter cushions and two matching bolster cushions. The four-seater sofa retails at €998 and has matching armchairs, cuddler sofas and footstools. Here, it’s styled with a pop of yellow, but feel free to add your own accent colour. Available from DFS, Mahon Point, www.dfs.ie

This Atticus and Stone large standing crystal tea light holder, €18.95, is just one of the collection available at Carrig Donn. There’s a selection of candle holders and decorations that you can pop on shelves, window sills and mantel pieces, as ornaments during the day and as atmospheric light at night. Prices start at €8.95 for the smaller items, so it won’t break the bank. www.carraigdonn.com
