After training & qualifying as a general & paediatric nurse Paula & Gerry married in 1987. Paula always made things and remembers as a 4 year old cutting up a skirt to make a dress for a doll. After a course in the Grafton academy Paula put her talents to making curtains and was working for some of the top designers in Dublin. She remembers getting fabric in 1990 worth £125 m and the designers saying he could only trust her to cut it. No pressure!!! Paula's father gave in & taught her how to use a sewing machine at the age of 7, a skill Paula used throughout her life. (Anyone remember Nolan's School of music in the Liberties / the same Nolans.)
Wildthings now have a team of makers & upholsterers supervised by Paula.
Interior design consultations ,buying
and sourcing are all part of a days work
Paula also adds relevant content and new product information to the website regularly.
