Most successful businesses evolve over time. Carlow-based Garrendenny Lane made the transition from interior design firm to online boutique store in just three years.
Owner Lorna Sixsmith set up the company in 2008 and she runs it from her home in Carlow. Originally, the company focused on providing interior design services, selling a range of boutique items on the side. However, the boutique side of the business proved more popular and, after the decline in the economy, Sixsmith decided to develop that side of Garrendenny Lane in more depth. The company now sells soft furnishings, wallpaper, gifts and other home-ware products online.
