Arena Kitchens was founded in 1987 in Dublin, with a mission to unite Irish craft and design with a contemporary European aesthetic. Mayo master joiner Kevin Rafter, and his two sons, furniture designer Kevin Jr and business graduate David, started the family business with a simple philosophy — give clients the high quality luxury kitchens they deserve.
Since its beginnings in Cardiff Lane in the area now known as Dublin’s Docklands, Arena has become Ireland’s leading name in designer kitchen luxury. From their showrooms to homes nationwide, the Arena look has dominated high-end kitchen design for two generations.
In 2012 they bought and transformed a 8,000 sq ft former warehouse in Sandyford into Ireland’s finest kitchen and furniture showroom. In the last decade, they have expanded the Sandyford warehouse, and opened new premises in Rathnew and Newtownmountkennedy in Wicklow, offering a vast range of premium products.
Arena’s team of architects, furniture designers and expert installers have won multiple awards for their innovative designs, specialist materials and ability to shape interior design trends in Ireland and further afield. Arena is now the standard for premium kitchen quality in Ireland.
