The brainchild of interior designer and buyer Vanessa MacInnes, Industry collects furniture, accessories and lighting fixtures from across Europe, repurposes and upcycles them with a loving touch, and nestles them amongst new designs in its Temple Bar digs. There's nothing ephemeral or gimmicky about Industry's collection: these are sturdy, well-designed and characterful one-offs that offer a minimal, individual alternative to mass-produced interior staples. The clue to this shop's aesthetic is in the name: stripped-back, hard-wearing, metallic and modern. And if you're not buying big, worry not – there's an array of stationery, cards and other trinkets that you won't need a delivery van to take away.
When MacInnes isn't travelling across the world picking up awesome new stock at salvage markets, she's the go-to for interior consultation for those in the know. She is currently building an ambitious second home on Drury Street, which promises to be the foremost emporium for striking decor in the city. Keep your eyes peeled.
