DINE IN STYLE
Tucked away in Fethard-on-sea, Co Wexford is the workshop of furniture designer and maker Shane Tubrid.
A graduate of the National Centre for Excellence in Furniture Design and Technology at Letterfrack, Co Galway, most of his work is bespoke, from sideboards and consoles, to coffee and dining tables. One particular piece, notable for its design ingenuity, is the red oak circular dining table which extends from a six-seater to 12-seater, not, however, with the typical insert but by the addition of a rim comprising eight separate components which can be stored away in a matching sideboard when not in use.
All his pieces are open to further development to suit the needs of his clients. Prices on application at www.shanetubridfurniture.ie.
