hay hourglasses

HAY is a brand that almost needs no introduction. The Danish label has taken the interior world by storm in its 15 years, loved for its mid-century minimalism meets eclectic world-inspired prints, contrasting textures and unique silhouettes. Working with designers and craftsmen around the globe alongside the in-house design team, HAY creates pieces that are truly unique yet accessible and fit seamlessly in the home – so much so that they’ve become icons in themselves. Discover five of the most iconic HAY pieces you need in your home now, and keep them a lifetime.

The Time Hourglass  

The classic hourglass has been updated in sleek lines and contemporary finishes with a soft round shape and the colours of the moment: powder blue and millennial pink. Leave the phone timer behind and mark your half-hours the old-fashioned way.

The Embroidered Cushion

Designed by French artist Nathalie Du Pasquier, this cushion takes inspiration from cells to create a print that’s bold, unique and will make a statement in any space. Add to simple furnishings for the ultimate stand-out piece – after all, it’s not often your home textiles feature a print from a founding member of the Memphis Group.

The White Wine Glass

The wine glass: a staple in any discerning individual’s household. Created by Amsterdam-based designers Scholten and Baijings in collaboration with HAY, this glass features an elegant gold grid detail – adding a subtle element of style that gives it that little something extra.

The Dark Green Cushion

Dark green is having a moment. With ‘greenery’ being the Pantone Colour of the Year and not being able to move for palm leaves on Instagram, it’s no wonder that this is a shade that’s been getting a lot of love of late. This cushion features one dark green velvet side and one grey side, making it easy to change it up and create new looks.

The Cacti Tres

Playing further on the botanical trend, this ceramic cactus will add an element of summer in any space. Created by Spanish ceramic artist Lina Cofán, the Cacti Tres comes complete with realistic finish and glossy glaze.
