hay is for horses and is also a store in copenhagen.

Bridging the gap between architecture and fashion, Rolf Hay launched his namesake company at IMM Cologne in 2003 with the aim to bring Danish design back to the innovative greatness of the 1950s and ‘60s, yet in a contemporary context. Hay is committed to nurturing and promoting the originality of young talents as well as “exploring the twisted minds of established designers.”*

despite the impracticality of shopping at stores located in denmark, i have spent at least an hour perusing the wares of HAY. perusing and wanting, that is, not that anyone is surprised. the great news is that my most favorite HAY products are available stateside through aplusr and design within reach. my most favorite, the PLOPP STOOL is created using space-age technology that makes welded sheets of steel blow up like a balloon, so no two stools are alike. available here in five colors.
PLUS 9 BLANKETS are double-woven in wool and beautifully patterned in bright colors. I LOVE THESE. you can buy one for me here if you want, because they are on sale! or you can buy me all three.
adorable HEE CHAIRS, another great HAY design, are also available through aplusr. HEE. HAY. ha. the best part is that they come in several colors and are suitable for the outdoors or indoors. hee lounge chairs, hee dining chairs and hee barstools.
