As you know, I’m a big lover of Danish design brand, HAY. Lots, maybe most, of you will know of them too, but just in case you don’t, or you’d like to know a little bit more…


HAY was founded in 2002, by Mette and Rolf HAY with businessman Troels Holch Povlsen. Within a year the company launched its first furniture collection at the international furniture fair IMM in Cologne. In 2005, HAY launched an accessory line with selected products found around the world. These products had original stories, perfect for both the modern workplace and in private homes. Now, focusing on maintaining these standards for the development of their own products, they produce accessories ranging from paper products, storage solutions, tableware and textiles, small furniture pieces and blankets. All created in cooperation with international designers and their own in-house design team, and lots of which is available at SMUG. At the heart of everything that HAY does is the notion that contemporary design should spring from a good idea, innovative technology and quality materials in combination with joyful, straightforward and uncomplicated aesthetics.


Personally, what I value most is their simplistic style and use of colour. Their products are generally light, fresh and pleasing in the hand, as well as to the eye. Featured here are some of my favourite pieces from a recent shoot at SMUG. Having purchased a pale pink waffle tablecloth in Paris earlier in the year, I’m really enjoying playing with tableware and making much more of an effort to style my dinner table. The Paper Porcelain collection provides the perfect elegant yet edgy table vases. The Gradient Glass and simple Water Glass ranges have you covered for chic drinking vessels and the LUP and Kutter candlesticks take you so gracefully into Autumn that the shorter days become a pleasure, Time for a dining table refresh?
