 A Morning of Craftsmanship and Inspiration with Finline


The winter morning at our Cork showroom became the canvas for an exciting gathering of creativity and craftsmanship, centered around our exquisite handcrafted Irish furniture. Finline welcomed 15 Interior Designers for a gourmet breakfast, creating an immersive experience that blended interiors, creativity, and the joy of shared inspiration.

Amidst the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, designers and makers alike enjoyed a gourmet breakfast, setting the stage for a day of inspiration and connection with our bespoke furniture. Finline’s commitment to excellence, making every aspect of the event a testament to our dedication to creating handcrafted Irish furniture and bespoke corner sofas for Irish homes.

The event was a perfect opportunity to showcase the quality and craftsmanship embedded in every sofa, armchair, footstool, or headboard crafted in our workshops in the heart of Ireland. From luxurious fabrics to meticulously crafted furniture, each piece stood as a testament to our commitment to providing the finest in interior design, including bespoke headboards that add a touch of luxury to any bedroom.

As the morning unfolded, attendees were treated to a glimpse into Finline’s rich history, where the journey over the last 45 years, marked by passion and precision, was shared with the talented craftsmen. Some of these craftsmen have been working in Finline since the first days the doors opened, contributing to the legacy of our handmade couches and sofas.

A special thank you to the 15 Interior Designers who took time out of their busy schedules to attend our event. Jane Dennehy, Grainne Crowley, Karen Brosnan, Cathy Angelini, Catherine Troy, Maura Mackey, Sinead Collins, Rachel Hobbs, Cormari Ryan, Kristina Schultz and Sharpen Interiors. Their valuable feedback and shared enthusiasm for our bespoke furniture were the highlights of the day. Our gratitude also extends to the dedicated Cork team, the true sofa experts in our Cork showroom – Tracey, Mary, Gwen, Rita, and Breda. Their knowledge and passion for sofas and creating the perfect living space for our customers, whether it’s a bespoke corner sofa or a unique headboard, is second to none.


The success of the Cork event has set the stage for our next gathering in Galway early next year. We will also be hosting similar events in Emo and Dublin in early 2024, continuing these events of connection, inspiration, and celebration with the creative minds and taking them on our sofa and armchair journey through Ireland.

Stay tuned for more glimpses into the world of Finline and the magic that happens when makers and designers come together.
