Based a few footsteps off the bustling Lisburn Road this interiors paradise is the hard work of sisters Patricia and Catherine who have curated a collection of both emerging and established brands, including many local designers.
For all you brides and grooms out there who fancy having a wedding list somewhere that you are sure to find unique items for your home, Maven have recently launched a great gift list service. Think less about the digital world and more about personal care and attention to your gift list. The girls at Maven are crazy about adding interiors zing to your home and will help you select pieces that will only enhance your abode. Each list, no matter how big or small is handwritten and cared for by one of the team. This striped back to basics approach is so welcome in a world where more and more we are simply dealing with a computer screen. It’s been such a success in fact, they recently had an Australian couple call looking for a gift. After a quick chat the item was chosen and the couple gladly collected it when they landed and before they headed off to the wedding. Now that is service!
