Dunnes Stores Collaborates With Irish Designer For In-Store Garden Centre
Diarmuid Gavin is the latest Irish designer to partner with Dunnes Stores to develop plant and garden shops with a new brand called Diarmuid Gavin’s Outer Spaces.
His opening collection includes a curated offer of houseplants, indoor trees, pots, gardening goods and books. The first shop has just opened at 49 South Great George’s Street, Dublin 2.
Diarmuid Gavin’s Outer Spaces
“This is a gorgeous old space to stop in for a coffee, a browse or simply a breather to admire the collection of plants we have sourced from all over the world. It’s botanical cuteness in a boutique and we want people to fall in love with our plants,” Gavin said.
“We promise good advice and great old-school music for customers who wish to care for their houseplant collection. People living in the city, especially in apartments, understand the joy of living with easy-to-maintain plants of all origins: from tropical islands to arid desert landscapes.
Starting next month, Dunnes Stores will begin introducing the Diarmuid Gavin Outer Spaces to newly refurbished stores in Dublin and around the country.
Gavin’s vision for his Outer Spaces garden range has been cultivated with a dedicated Dunnes Stores team over the past year and has been inspired by the recent worldwide indoor gardening revolution.
In addition, from mid-October, gardeners can avail of regular evening workshops where they will be guided through the crafts of planting terrariums, potting plants and making cacti gardens.
