Welcome to the DFS Interiors Inspiration Centre

More than ever, the way we furnish our homes is about expressing our personalities – showcasing to the world who we are and what we love. In interiors, everyone has a thing. It could be a bright thing, a luxe thing, a patterned or plain thing, a colourful or a neutral thing.

These are the things that reflect who we are and shape how our lives and our homes look.  The DFS Interiors Inspiration Centre showcases four Irish creatives who have drawn inspiration from DFS’s campaign, which champions personality-led interiors by asking.




What’s your thing? Susan McGowan

Creative Director, DFS Interiors Theatre and DFS Interiors Inspiration Centre

Athlone designer Susan McGowan, of Interior Architecture & Design Studio, Ashen & Cloud, will take centre stage at the permanent tsb Ideal Home Show. A busy mum of three, Susan’s thing is helping people create homes that they love. She has worked with DFS and the three other design creatives who aim to show visitors ‘their thing’ at the DFS Interiors Inspiration Centre.

The centre takes the form of four room sets packed full of personality, where you can browse DFS products for inspiration.

Susan says, “I look forward to welcoming everyone to the DFS Interiors Inspiration Centre at the permanent tsb Ideal Home Show. I really enjoy helping people create homes that they love and I know there will be plenty for people to draw inspiration from no matter what their taste is in interiors.”
The DFS Interiors Theatre is the jewel in the crown, where Jo Linehan will join many of Ireland’s leading designers and creatives to share ideas and talk about the latest trends. In designing this space, Susan has drawn from Jo’s passion for sustainability, with the new Lambourn sofa from the Grand Designs range exclusively at DFS sitting centre stage.

At the stunning design hub in the DFS Interiors Inspiration Centre, DFS and their’ thingsters’ will be providing plenty of support to help visitors find their own thing. The space will be designed around the popular Kruze sofa from DFS, paired with DFS Club Accent Chair in stunning Cinnamon velvet.
