About Ventura Design
Ventura Design are one of Ireland and the UK’s leading interior design firm and bespoke furniture manufacturer. Arlene McIntyre founded Ventura in 2005 after many years working in the design industry.

At Ventura, we can thoughtfully and carefully map out a room. We can see instinctively what should go where. We know how to optimise space or the art of showing off a piece to its greatest effect. But our skill also extends beyond designing. We source furniture to sell. And we have established our own furniture manufacturing facility that allows us to create our very own pieces. A bespoke range tailored to your tastes. From sumptuously upholstered dining chairs to skilfully carved headboards – our fine furniture is made to last.
