Any standout interior shopping destinations?

The Irish Times asked Niamh Banks – founder of lifestyle & wellness company Seven Wood – about trends, inspiration and favourites in her design and lifestyle world.

When asked about her preferred shopping destination right now – guess what she answered… 🙂




the-irish-times-logoI travel to Denmark, Sweden and Paris to buy for the store but, as a regular consumer, Lisbon is the best place I’ve been in years.

You can feel this creative current running through the streets. Principe Real is full of cool concept stores, Embaixada in Ribeiro da Cunha Palace is my favourite – it’s bursting with Portuguese designers and amazing food. Baixa-Chiado is another Lisbon enclave jammed with design stores and stalls.

And the MUDE museum is a must visit for design fans – it has everything from Dior couture to the Wiggle chair by Frank Gehry.

We can’t agree more – and also remember the annual LXD Show in October

If you’re planning a design/lifestyle shopping trip to Lisbon but still haven’t booke your tickest why not combine it with the LXD Lisboa Design Show that runs on 1822 October 2017.

The most accomplished design event in Portugal, in the areas of equipment / product (home and lifestyle), fashion (clothing, jewelery, shoes and other accessories), interior and visual and asserts itself as the only platform of excellence to promote national design, service young designers and creators, educational institutions, emerging brands and startups.
