Great to be included in another fantastic article by The Art Of Design about how we at Ventura Design are bucking the economic trend by expanding our flagship London showroom at the Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour last autumn. The new area provides a luxurious space for the bespoke furniture, as well as a showcase forour iconic new home accessories collection

which was created and devised during the lockdown, as the team tirelessly sourced a comprehensive range of elegant lamps, throws, photo frames, candles and covetable decorative ornaments to enhance the home.


“We are now at home more than ever and learning to live all aspects of our lives within four walls” says Arlene McIntyre, Creative Director and founder of Ventura. “We wanted to make home improvements in terms of interior styling accessible to everyone, and allow our customer base and beyond to add those unique finishing touches.

”The collection represents the first e-commerce site for the Dublin-based company and means that the carefully curated selection of luxurious accessories which the company has traditionally used to transform luxury homes and commercial projects is now available to everyone.


The London showroom is a luxurious and glamourous place to visit with a range of bespoke sofas, chairs, tables and headboards on display, and the 4 strong team includes in-house interior designer Sophie Stanbury who brings her experienced eye to projects in the capital and the South. “While we have long been regarded as the leading interior design company in Ireland, London offers us the opportunity to connect with designers and clients, as well as effectively display our complete furniture range, lighting and accessories in a series of room sets, which clients and designers really appreciate” explains Arlene.

Ventura has worked closely with high profile clients such as TV presenter and model Vogue Williams, and social media star Millie Mackintosh, to stylishly transform their London homes.

At Ventura we believe that homes should be more than just comfortable, they should be interesting and an extension of their owner’s personalities, but not instantly shouting out the latest trend, but display an understanding and design intelligence about the way people live and use their homes.” explains Arlene. With unrivalled expertise of working with developers, interior designers and private clients looking for a full turn-key service, Ventura’s great advantage is that it can provide a one-stop conception-to-completion solution if required.


Despite the current climate of uncertainty, Ventura Design is looking positively to the future and will be opening their first European showroom in Portugal later this year. Always one to look for the silver lining, Arlene believes that our interest and desire to make our homes the very best they can be, will not diminish, whatever 2021 has in store “It’s a very exciting time for the company, as we expand our bespoke range and accessories, and as Covid continues to dominate all our lives we are delighted to offering a full virtual interior design service for those who prefer not to travel at the moment.”
