Age: 34.

From: Roscommon, now living in Oldtown, Co Dublin.

Making it happen: “I always knew that I wanted my own homeware business,” says Tish O’Conor Nash. “I wanted the challenge.” For more than 10 years, she had worked in the furniture industry – both retail and wholesale. And, having watched her mother run a guesthouse, she knew all the extra graft that’s involved in being self-employed. In July 2019, she set up her online company, stagerslifestyle.com.

Turning a house into a home: “I studied interior design and I’ve always been picking up interesting bits and bobs,” says Tish. Now she runs the business from a studio on her husband’s farm in Oldtown. Among the quirky treasures, you can find lighting, glassware and tables.

Covid clicks: When lockdown happened, she noticed people became more confident in buying online. “I think it helped my sales and people were happy to support an Irish company.”

A look: It irritated her that on some homeware sites, you see just one item. In her studio, she puts several different pieces together to create a look. Her eclectic goods are on display there in a Christmas pop-up until December 11.
