Ireland’s leading interior design firm and bespoke furniture manufacturer, Ventura Design, was founded by Arlene McIntyre in 2005 after years spent working in the industry. The name nods to her sunny Californian heritage while the luxurious West Coast aesthetic is frequently mirrored in the company’s classic contemporary designs, which can be found in private residences, hotels and property developments across the globe.
First and foremost, Arlene believes that homes should be more than just comfortable and beautiful – they should be interesting and an extension of the owner’s personality, too. With her ability to map out a room and instinctively understand what should go where, it’s no surprise that she is a much sought-after interior designer with a growing list of celebrity clients, including Irish model Vogue Williams and television star Millie Mackintosh. She is also the talent behind the recent revamp at Luttrellstown Castle. But the skill of the Ventura Design team – a 50-strong group of exceptional artisans, craftsmen, dreamers and lateral thinkers – extends way beyond designing.

The pandemic has not held Ventura Design back, with the company remaining operational throughout, delivering exceptional quality furniture to clients. In fact, demand has increased for luxurious and stylish homes with both functional and relaxing spaces. It is also continuing with its expansion plans for the UK and Europe, adding a new state-of-the-art showroom in Portugal later this year to its existing portfolio of showrooms in Dublin and London. Plans in the pipeline include, excitingly, a new six-part interior design-focused television series entitled Designed for Life that will be hosted by Arlene.
She and the team at Ventura Design don’t just create a concept: they also design, craft and fit, working tirelessly to ensure that the company’s bespoke products are exceptional and the finished look is exquisite.
