For the London Design Festival 2013: they set up a still life depicting a dinner party in progress at the V&A museum for the London Design Festival. They installed a large dining table set for a party of guests in the ornate gilded Norfolk House Music Room in the British Galleries of the V & A museum. Cutlery is skewed, glasses are half full and food is strewn across the table, as if the party is in progress but all the guests have vanished – a quirky concept showing their products in situ and in such a grand setting.

HAY – cool scandinavian design


Hay’s designs  are so current yet so timeless. Offering Scandinavian cool with quality, affordable products all makes for a brand that is growing quickly and becoming ever so popular.
Their range of accessories is quite unique and ranges from dominoes, archive trays, wooden hands to wooden rulers.

Their furniture collection is sublime but the stand-out products are the Mags Sofa, About A Chair, Copenhague Dining table by the Bouroullec Brothers and the Woody shelving.

They have become renowned for their great rugs too – made from 100% wool the colour carpets and pinocchio rugs in particular.

The range available is large and offers something for every Design connoisseur out there. Their pastel tones tailor to the current trend but mix so well with the more timeless neutral greys, beiges etc.

Their new range Wrong designed by Sebastian Wrong includes some really cool lights and a great new sofa – Hackney.
