The recognisable themes of flowers and butterflies, often seen on Accessorize jewellery and handbags transfer well to their bed linen collection also. The three new designs are sure to bring summer into your home-check them out in the image gallery.

Speaking of summer, light voile curtains are a great way to dress a window during the warmer months, and Seville, a pretty floral design in cream has long been a favourite amongst customers. Temporarily discontinued, we are now glad to say that it is back in stock and here to stay for summer! Check it out in the curtain gallery.

Another curtain, back by popular demand, is Plaza red, a striking eyelet curtain in cream, with blocks of red which add a dash of warmth to any room.

April 2012 at Household Linens

All last week, we were taking part in the Titanic commemorations by giving each customer a Titanic postcard to mark the centenary, and even now our front window still contains a display of Titanic glass cloths, of which we have quite a variety. It was nice to see so many businesses making the effort, most of all in Cobh where Gemma even spotted staff members in the local Wilson’s pharmacy dressed up in costumes of the Titanic era. It has to be said that the centenary was well marked all around the country.

This April, new stock has continued to arrive.  We now carry a whole range of PVC shopping bags, and they continue to be popular amongst our customers, particularly during this week’s rainy weather when they do a good job of protecting groceries! As-well as two Titanic designs, there are also  cats, farmyard, seaside images and Julie Dodsworth’s oh-so-pretty Calamity Jane and chocolate box designs. Mini shopper bags are €10 with larger bags at €14 and €15.

We also have a new array of cushions, draught excluders and even bean bags in nautical summery designs, sure to cheer you up when the Irish weather turns grey and cloudy.

We’re glad to say that our ever popular Spundown quilt, usually available in either a 9.0 or 13.5 tog is now also in stock in an All-Seasons version. All-Seasons quilts can be very useful as they are made up of both a 9.0 tog and a 4.5 tog, which, when fastened together make a 13.5 tog. So you are covered no matter the season. The All-Seasons Spundown is available in all four sizes (Single up to Super-king) and can be washed in a domestic machine at 60 degrees. Recommended by our own staff!

Blackout ready-made curtains are a new addition in our line of ready-mades. They are available in three colours: a denim blue, a light pink and beige. Reasonably priced, they can be a good buy for light sleepers, disturbed by early summer mornings.

With so many new products, the shop is looking very inviting right now, so do come in and have a browse, you’re always welcome!

The great curtain offer…now on!

While our summer sale has now officially come to an end, there are still great bargains to be had on discontinued designs. The month of September also brings a good deal on readymade curtains with 20% off all readymades which are currently in store, and up to 70%off clearance curtains.

Hotfoot it to Household Linens this month!

We are now making way for the new autumn stock in bedlinen, and some of it is already here, such as Madeira, a pretty floral design from Moda de Casa.

Meanwhile, First Avenue’s ‘Bright Floral’, a funky stripes and floral quilt cover, is flying out the door, with single sets at €15 and cute matching cushions at just a fiver.
