Hay Reviews

Experience

I genuinely love Hay. Hay's style is essentially my personal aesthetic. My apartment is full of Hay products from furniture, right down to their distinctive Spiral candles. I think my favourite product so far is the Butler Stool (in my photo). It's the perfect home for some of my plant babies, and useful as a perch, or to reach the back of our highest shelves. I live in Copenhagen, and Hay have a flagship store, AKA the "Hay House" here. It's set over 4 floors and laid out as a house, it's the perfect place to go when I have friends visit in Copenhagen. The only problem is I never leave empty handed.

Feedback

Two things make my review 4/5 instead of 5/5. Firstly, sometimes Hay products could be slightly higher quality. For example I have two Revolver Bar Stools. They look beautiful, and are fun to sit on and swivel on. However they are prone to scratching, even from people simply sitting on them. Surely there is a tougher finish Hay could have used? The other typical drawback for Hay products is that they sometimes prioritise form over function. For example the Hay Watering Can is beautiful to look at, but water comes out incredibly slowly, and it often dribbles everywhere 😢 Oh, but it's so beautiful to look at.

I've been obsessing over HAY and their products for years. I love that they've expanded further into homeware accessories all at a reasonable price. Its sophisticated, yet playful and fun. Their products make excellent gifts, especially the glassware, and the boxes are so design-forward I sometimes don't even wrap them. I've been eyeing more of the lighting and recently purchased a pink LED tube which feels very James Turrell. I finally made it to HAY house in copenhagen and it was, as to be expected, MAGICAL ✨

HAY seems to be available at a lot of stores in Europe, I'd love more accessibility in the states!
