We love hearing about new & exciting business ventures here at tabitha. The lastest one to catch our eye is the new Dublin based art and interiors online store www.aprilandthebear.com Founded by former fashion buyer Siobhan, April and the Bear (Bear being the pet name for her partner in crime and other half, and April being the month they were both born. Too sweet!) is a treasure chest of must have items for your home & life in general.
Not only can you purchase awesome things but you can also read Siobhan and Bear’s (!) journey as they decorate their Portobello home from scratch. If you need tips for your new home or just curious about where to even begin start reading here.(WARNING: This will give you a serious dose of life envy…!)
April and the Bear is a great place to treat yourself to something unique. The mix of what is on offer is eclectic. From jewellery designed by ex-model Vera Balyura – whose fans includes Chloe Sevigny and Tilda Swinton – to fine art prints from Irish artists such as Carol Mahon. (Who of course beautifully illustrated the cover of tabitha Issue 5!)
It is safe to say that once you click on this website you will fall in love with its layout and content. Here are just a few things I have added to my wishlist…..
Large glass dome with Mango woodbase
Industrial Light Shade
But Panti Told Me To – Print.
So , what are you waiting for? Happy Shopping!!
