She discussed it with her friend, Christina Kenny, who had also lived abroad. Together, they decided to set up a new online interior store called Lamb Design, and bring to Ireland all the things that they had sourced abroad and loved. Emma has a studio in her house with its own separate entrance, where people can come by appointment and talk interiors and look at samples. They can also go online and purchase the many beautiful pieces on sale, including bedlinen, cushions, and lamps, many of which are made by artisans. She is trying to include as many Irish artisans as possible. She also has a little section of her website called Little Lamb, which is devoted to accessories for children’s rooms.
