The Big Up Branding

Local Business Mentioned in The Irish Times

Local ‘Neo-Retro’ business, The Big Up, which specialises in repurposing or up-cycling old furniture was featured in The Irish Times last weekend.

Owner, Nawal Kabouche-Kouadri, who studied Interior Design at Dún Laoghaire Senior College, had never seen a skip before moving to Ireland in 2007, and thought it  a waste to see items that were only slightly damaged being thrown out.

Knowing that there is a market in bringing new life to older furniture, (there is an entire street  which specialises in such items in Brussel), Nawal set up shop in 2014 with the aim of offering nothing but unique items to her clients.
