Join GAFF Interiors for a Christmas pop-up experience like no other, this November 24-25th.
At GAFF, we know that Christmas can be a hectic and stressful time of year, especially when it comes to frantic gift buying in crowded stores. This year, however, we’re inviting decor lovers in particular to experience a different kind of shopping experience. On November 24th and 25th, at Dublin’s Studio 10, you’re welcome to swap the never-ending queues and panic-style frenzy synonymous with Christmas for an unforgettable, interactive shopping experience that will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready for all that December brings. Tucked away on Wicklow Street, and spread across two beautiful floors with elegant sash windows overlooking the city’s sparkling lights, you’ll find the magical, immersive GAFF Christmas pop-up, sponsored by DFS, supported by Tesco Finest in aid of Peter McVerry Trust, the national housing and homeless charity.
BUY TICKETS HERE
Shop at your own pace, revel in the sounds and scents of Christmas, and experience an inspiring festive setting while doing your good deed for the season: GAFF are delighted to reveal that tickets for the pop up will cost 12 euro per person, of which, all proceeds will go to Peter McVerry Trust.
“Peter McVerry Trust would like to thank the organisers and supporters of this lovely event. The public knows we have a homeless crisis but at Peter McVerry Trust we are focused on the solutions to that crisis. We want to create comfortable, safe homes for as many people as possible and by supporting this event you can help more people move into a home so they too can fully enjoy the festive season.” Nell Ward, Corporate Fundraising Manager with Peter McVerry Trust.
What to expect? At the GAFF Christmas Pop Up Experience you will be welcomed by a sparkling festive tipple and luxury bites from Tesco Finest, into a stunning space styled with furniture from DFS, proud supporters of this one-of-a-kind event. You will browse the intimate GAFF homewares market where Irish creatives gather to showcase their unique offerings, all of which will make for an original and thoughtful gift for someone special this Christmas. From handmade table lamps by Kopper Kreation to original encaustic paintings by Kady Berry Art and unique tiled wall art from Alanna Plekkenpol, you’ll find something different and meaningful here. New Irish brand Jane Darcy will be showcasing their stunning collection of all natural candles while Dusty Boy Designs will get you into the Christmas spirit with their contemporary cards and striking wall prints.
Beyond the shopping market element, you will find decor inspiration aplenty as you plan to dress your own home for the Christmas period. Explore everything from luxe to Nordic, kitsch to traditional – all set against the perfect furniture backdrop of the DFS range. From a covetable Christmas tablescape to unique tree stylings, festive wall features and more, you’ll experience a taste of not just one kind of Christmas.
Transporting you away from the hustle and bustle and into your own winter wonderland, the GAFF Christmas Pop Up Experience will also boast an enjoyable interactive element, where local florists will demonstrate the perfect simple Christmas wreath and centerpiece, as well as festive cake styling tips and personalised gifting.
While at the event, guests will have the opportunity to enter a show-stopping competition to win a €500 voucher to spend at Tesco, solving all of your festive foodie needs. Elsewhere, one lucky attendee will go home with a brand new DFS sofa, as part of a raffle competition across the weekend event. Every attendee will leave with a bespoke luxury goodie bag with Tesco Finest treats, exclusive discount offers and more to be revealed.
Tickets are available now available on Eventbrite.
Commenting on the forthcoming pop-up, Jo Linehan of GAFF Interiors says, “We are so excited to host our first ever event, bringing our loyal readers and the wonderful brands with whom we’ve worked together under one roof for an unforgettable, feel-good weekend.”
“As proud sponsors, we are thrilled to be working with Gaff Interiors and supporting Peter McVerry Trust. DFS is looking forward to showcasing a range of our sofas for shoppers to enjoy at the pop-up, in comforting colours and luscious soft textures sure to add an air of indulgence to your home, as you get ready and cosy up for the festive season. ” John Kelly, DFS Ireland.
