A little mention in the Irish Times

The Irish Times paid Belfast a visit and kindly popped in to Maven for a nosey. Here's what they had to say...


" Maven is one of several great shops in the Lisburn Road area. Run by sisters Patricia and Catherine McGennis, the home and interior practice opened 18 months ago and stocks the work of local designers such as Donna Bates, whose Parlour lighting has become a modern classic, and Mourne Textiles, whose creations grace the apparel of Louis Vuitton. Housed in an architecturally gorgeous red-brick memorial hall, check out the locally made Saint Maren bathing soaps and oils and Bates’ latest work, Donnyneil, a round mirror in natural birch, stripe, blue or mustard.
