The interior architecture of this colourful contemporary knitting store aims to blend the historical character of the Powerscourt buildings with a modern, vibrant twist to reflect the store’s identity and the wonderfully creative knitting community.

The store features an open-plan layout to maximize the use of natural light and create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere. The walls painted in a warm, light shade of grey serves as a backdrop for the vibrant yarns and textiles & bold retail displays.

The inspiration for the bold & colourful joinery & retail displays came from the medley of colours of yarn & wools sold in the shop. A dramatic row of blue arched retail displays greet you upon entering the store. This scene is flanked by a vibrant magenta feature cash desk wall on one end & deep purple “library shelves” on the other.

The mid floor units designed to be lower in the space to allow views across the store are a deep forest green, while the joinery on the window wall is  deep charcoal grey. The joinery here is conceived as furniture items on legs, it’s neutral tones  allow the period architecture of the Georgian building to shine through while still letting the colour of the products shine through.

Lisa & her talented team at This is Knit have carefully set out the merchandise across the store organised by colour, texture, brand & style, making it easy engaging for customers to browse and find what they are looking for.

Overall, the design of this colourful contemporary knitting store in a Georgian building would be a perfect blend of tradition and modernity, reflecting the store’s love for knitting and textiles in a vibrant and welcoming space.


The exterior of the store features the traditional Georgian façade with tall symmetrical windows and original brickwork. A bright and eye-catching circular sign signals the store’s presence to passers-by.
