April and the Bear is one of Ireland's leading interior + lifestyle stores, filled to the brim with eclectic homewares, exclusive art prints, gorgeous gifts and beautiful furniture.
We are a small, savvy + busy independent homewares business. We are female-founded + led, hardworking and love what we do. The business was born from a need, a need to find unusual + beautiful homewares in Ireland at affordable prices. We started as an online-only concept business and have evolved into a fully-fledged homewares/ furniture + lifestyle store and interior design studio with both a strong online + physical presence. We are committed to the community we have built over the last 8 years and intend on growing our business with intention, enthusiasm, hard work and a good dollop of fun.
Our ambition is to curate a considered store filled with products that make you smile - pieces that you will absolutely love. We want to excite + inspire those looking for something different, unique and beautiful for their home.
The latest Irish online retailer to catch our eye, and boy does it do that. A carefully curated selection of alternative, industrial - cool homeware, art prints and jewellery selected by founder Siobhan Lam... The Portobello-based online store is our new favourite e-tailer. Cue cool interiors and pretty accessories.
April and the Bear has fast become the coolest virtual go-to destination for homewares…
