Secondhand living room buys to try

, , ,

Consider secondhand living room furniture for your next home update. Here are some pre-loved furniture and accessories to transform your space

We adore interiors here at Irish Country Magazine, and love nothing more than browsing the shops and scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest for inspiration. But did you know that fast interiors can potentially be as harmful as fast fashion? Large furniture items and countless accessories can be thoughtlessly discarded in favour of new furniture, and stuff that’s in good condition really shouldn’t be going to landfill.

But you don’t have to resist a home refresh in the name of sustainability. If your living room could do with a style update, we’ve found some gorgeous secondhand living room furniture across Ireland.
