Shopper’s Diary: Hay House in Copenhagen

August 29, 2011

Last spring I spent a few days in Copenhagen; the shopping highlight? Hay House, located on two floors of a grand building in central Copenhagen. The experience feels more like a visit to a friend's chic apartment than a conventional shop stop-in; the loft-like interior is anchored by an antique staircase imported from England and features a mix of pieces from Hay's own line of Danish-design pieces with items from other European designers: Paris-based Astier de Villatte, Sweden's Iris Hantverk, and Holland's Scholten & Baijings. Founded in 2003 by Rolf and Mette Hay and Troels Holch Povlsen, Hay aspires to "encourage Danish furniture design’s return to the innovative greatness of the 1950s and 1960s, but in a contemporary context." Go to Hay for more information.
