Our Story

You Design is a bespoke furniture makers and design house which was established in Wicklow in 2012 by Ian Kelly. Ian Kelly is a furniture designer and maker who studied at GMIT Letterfrack Furniture College. From there he went to Vietnam to complete an internship with international designer John Reeves at Reeves Design. Here he made valuable connections with manufacturing factories and worked in these factories to understand the true process of mass production in South-East Asia.

When he returned to Ireland he established You Design with a number of different goals. He wanted to touch on all aspects of furniture design and manufacture – Our work varies from high end hand crafted commissions to affordable designer collections and everything in between -exploring the boundaries of production and design at every opportunity. As well as the bespoke furniture aspect of You Design has a design house which offers working drawings, small scale production, graphic design, prototypes and consultation. Using our connections over-seas to You Design can take start-ups and established companies from initial concept right through to mass production in South-East Asia.

Please look at the Design House page for more information and our Collections to see our bespoke work. To get an idea of what’s on our mind have a look at our blog and to get our details and directions to the workshop see contact.
