Try some finishing touches - with the Orla Kiely touch.

 The finishing touches, those accessories and extras, can really bring a room to life. They’re the things that help to define your style. And when it comes to style, Orla Kiely’s designs are going to be just what you’re looking for.


This Irish designer started out designing hats and handbags, but soon moved on to a range of work including cars (Yes, really!) and kitchenware. Soon, ‘The Guardian’ was calling her ‘The Queen of Prints’.


She’s worked for  Citroen, Harrods and Habitat. She’s been Visiting Professor of Textiles at the Royal College of Art, she’s an Honorary Fellow of the British Institute of Design.  Quite close to home she’s also an Honorary Doctor of Norwich University of the Arts.


It’s a stellar career and we’re thrilled to be stocking a fantastic selection of her designs.


Let’s start in the kitchen. The Orla Kiely Linear Stem Coasters and Place Mats say it all with their striking contemporary look. If the 70s vibe is your thing (and why wouldn’t it be? It’s seriously cool right now) then her ‘Flower’ design on teapots, milk jugs and butter dishes are going to make you very happy.

Even her 70s Oval Flower Multi Apron is a joy. Let’s face it, if you’re going to have wear an apron you really should do it with style!

We’ve got a range of Orla Kiely Towels too. In style statement colours like Dandelion, Duck Egg and Granite they’re both fluffy to feel and lovely to look at.

If there’s one finishing touch that can bring a room to life it’s a cushion. We’ve rather fallen in love with pieces like the Orla Kiely Early Bird Rose Cushionand the super cute Orla Kiely Poppy Dog Cushion’. (There’s a cat one as well - we cater for all tastes!)Take a look.

In the bigger picture, consider teaming accessories with your curtains - and the Orla Kiely Multi Stem Eyelet Curtains will make you want to look at the window, not out of it!


And then there’s the bedding. All the same Orla Kiely design flare, all the wonderful colours, but even more striking when they’re on something as big as a duvet cover. Try matching the bedding to a cushion, or make a feature of mixing cushions and duvet covers in different designs. The Orla Kiely Scribble Stembedding has certainly made an impact on us. We think you’ll love it. Go on - make the bed and make a statement!

Did we mention the bathroom? Orla Kiely has even designed a bath mat. Totally practical but downright designer it’s fun, gorgeous and ideal for complementing whatever colour scheme you have. If you’ve gone for a plain white bathroom this finishing touch will be stunning!


Check out all the Orla Kiely pieces in store or online. They’re a beautiful way to brighten your day.  And they’re so stylish we can’t think of a better way to add a fabulous finishing touch.
