Established in May 2012 by two graduates from GMIT’s Furniture College in Letterfrack, Nadura Design is one of the first businesses to secure a micro-loan from the WDC’s pilot “Micro-Loan Fund: Creative Industries”. Nadura Design is an international ecommerce business that provides original furniture designs, tailored online by the customer, using very simple and user-friendly web-based product selection and customisation tools. The furniture is designed based on sustainable principles and is manufactured in the customer’s home country/region by a member of Nadura Design’s network of manufacturing partners.

Its initial target markets will be the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The company’s first product range is ‘Irish Country Furniture’ inspired by vernacular Irish furniture from the period 1700-1950.
