(Crazy About) HAY

In 2002, the Danish furniture company HAY started manufacturing their functional, modern and affordable yet first-rate furniture.                          

We think their products are exceptional, and equally appropriate for commercial and residential use. Their fabric comes in a range of colours, and can suit almost all interior schemes. We have a bright magenta HAY About- a- Lounge chair sitting in our showroom, designed by Hee Welling.

We cannot get enough of the ‘About – A’ range, it’s a great example of how a strong design idea can hold a wealth of development prospects. The series ranges from sofas and dining chairs to bar and foot stools. It's adaptable and able to blend in or add a hit of modish design to any scheme. There are many different upholstery, finish and frame options so that you can ensure your piece is perfectly tailored to suit you.

HAY uses the same woodwork craftsmen that build Carl Hansen furniture (!), and upholster in robust Kvadrat fabrics that can withstand heavy use.

Our showroom located on the corner of St Peters Street now holds a collection of HAY furniture, ranging from storage, desks, tables, lounge chairs and dining chairs. Please come in and see for yourself...  

Clerkenwell Design Week

On the 25th May Eve and the team at Eve Waldron Design travelled down to London to attend Clerkenwell Design Week. 

We visited lots of our beloved and specified furniture showrooms, including Vitra and Carl Hansen, as well as trawling around the pop-up show rooms of the cool European designers that occupied Design Fields. Notice our new member of the team Bryony relaxing in the Arper showroom, in the comfortable Steve 1 Chair. 

The grounds around St James’ Church hosted Additions as well as two new exhibitions this year, Project and British Collection. It was fitting to have inspired British talent being showcased in the Church itself, underneath the barrel-roofed crypt. 

It was spooky and inspiring to wander underground in the basement tunnels of the former prison (The House of Detention), where Platforms was held. Perhaps by placing up-and-coming designers in this venue, evoked the sense that these companies were pushing the boundaries of design. There were some very exciting products on display. Check out the magnificent optical illusion bench designed by LEIZ (the bottom picture), they specialise in ‘knitwear for interiors’!
