Taking place in Dublin’s RDS from 26th-28th May 2017, house 2017 is an unmissable celebration of interior design, a definitive showcase of world-class interiors with what’s best and what’s next in design.
Meet the practitioners and be educated and inspired by the array of well-known industry leaders and innovators including Jo Hamilton, one of the UK’s leading interior designers, Dermot Bannon, the leading voice in Irish architectural design and Roisin Lafferty, founder and managing director of Kingston Lafferty Design, one of Ireland’s foremost interior architecture and design houses, who will all take part in a series of talks on the house 2017 Inspiration Stage.
According to Brendan O’Connor, INM: Through the INM team, we have the ability to make key events part of the national conversation. We are a nation that consumes interiors magazines, knows all about light, space, flashes of colour and statement pieces. The appetite for home improvement continues to grow as consumers’ purse-strings are loosening again and the question is not can you afford to be at house 2017, but can you afford not to be?”

High-end and aspirational, this event will bring together consumers and brands with over 180 exhibitors showcasing trend-lead interior concepts.
