A NYC Design Star Opens a Showroom in Milan

October 22, 2015

Tyler Hays of BDDW is broadening his horizon (again). He recently launched M. Crow & Co. in Oregon, and now he’s taking his American handcrafted furniture collection across the Atlantic to a new showroom in Milan. He’s displaying his own luxe-rustic timeless pieces alongside lighting by Lindsey Adelman, David Weeks, and Apparatus Studios.

In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Hays admitted that he’s counting on the showroom less as a revenue stream than as an excuse to visit Italy more often. We can’t help but agree with his excuse. 

Here’s a glimpse of the light-filled showroom.

The Ceramic Funnel Lamps are by Natalie Page, an Abel Sofa is paired with a round coffee table, and the Firewood Holder (includes a bundle of scrap wood from the BDDW workshop) can be seen in the background.
