Snoop around in the kitchens, closets, or entryways of just about any of us on the Remodelista team, and what will you find? Chances are, something by Hay.
Hay launched in Denmark in 2002 with the belief that good design is for everyone; we quickly fell for their clean-lined, statement-making, and accessibly priced wares, and we’ve been posting on finds of theirs we love—from trays to bed linens—ever since. We’re also appreciators of the brand’s ethos. Cofounders and creative directors Mette and Rolf Hay work with the generation’s best designers t o create high-quality, beautifully designed modern housewares for all. And we love the brand’s colorful spirit, too; every Hay piece, from the large-scale (a sofa) to the teeny tiny (a scrub brush) adds color and a little joy to the everyday.
So we were especially enthused to take note that Hay’s Living Room Sale is going on now—perfect timing, since we’re spending more hours in our living rooms than ever these days. From now through the end of August, many of Hay’s best-selling sofas and rugs, lounge chairs, side tables, lighting, and more are up to 15 percent off.
In addition, we’re teaming up with Hay to offer a $1000 shopping spree to rejuvenate your living area. This sweepstakes is now closed; one winner will receive a shopping code worth $1000 to spend at Hay.
Don’t forget to enter; in the meantime, take a peek at a few Hay finds to add spirit to any living space:
Above: First up: the Mags Sofa (this one is the Mags Soft Low Sectional with Chaise, $2,495), designed by Hay with rounded edges and generous cushions “as a low, deep, welcoming place to stretch out and lounge.”
Above: Another Soft Low Sectional, this one in a blue-grey shade fittingly called Blueberry. The rug is Hay’s Peas Rug ($695), shown in soft grey and woven in India of wool felt.
Above: Each BonBon Shade ($545) is hand-wrapped in colored yarn and is one of a kind, designed by Ana Kraš (a longtime Remodelista favorite) for Hay. Alongside is the Bernard chair ($2,395), shown in natural leather and oak, designed by Stockholm-based Shane Schneck as a “classically designed armchair with a modern appeal.”
Above: Hay’s Uchiwa Lounge Chair and Ottoman (from $2,090) is inspired by the design of Japanese hand fans. We’re admirers, also, of their About A Chair Collection, with designs both functional and good-looking for working at home.
Above: The Tray Coffee Table ($245) can actually be used as a bedside table or—with the top detached—as a tray. It’s also available in black, chocolate (a deep red-brown), and grey.
Above: A favorite from the Can Collection: The flat-pack, easy-going Can Sofa (from $2,095), designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec with relaxation in mind, has an exposed, minimal steel frame and sumptuous cushions.
Above: We like the rich berry hue of the Eiffel Square Coffee Table ($495), made of cast aluminum frame and powder-coated MDF. (This colorway is called dark brick.)
Above: Last but not least, the lush and clean-lined Hackney Three-Seater Sofa ($2,995) is surprisingly portable, with an upholstered, foldable frame that can be dismantled into three sections for easy rearranging—good for those on the move.
