Sometimes, something drops into your inbox and you stop everything. Finally seeing more news on the COS X HAY collaboration was such a time for me. Having been teased for a little while, the edit is online and in selected stores now. Long time brand friends, there is a natural flow between the two - both are rooted in Scandinavian design, offering pieces which are inherently simple, yet always beautiful. COS stores have long played host to HAY pieces, not least in the hanging rails their collections are displayed on.
The COS x HAY collection is full of impeccable pieces, ranging from gilt-edged notebooks to iron-speckled coffee cups. With a birthday next week, my wishlist has since grown by many, many items!
In addition to the classic items which form part of the collection, there is also the joyous new piece in the form of a side table. Designed by Tomas Alonso, these will be sold exclusively in COS and HAY stores. Its simple form and practical nature makes it a winner in my book. Cleverly designed with an A-shaped frame, the table folds away neatly - perfect for smaller spaces. The soft ash wood looks beautiful contrasted with the metal leg (either in white or jade). Fairly sure my newly decorated sitting room needs one of each...
While the side table is very much top of my wishlist, I've pulled together some of the other classic HAY pieces, which form part of the COS collection, all of which I'd happily fill my home with.
Info | The COS x HAY collection is online now. It is also being sold at the following COS stores: London, High Street Kensington / Vienna Neubaugasse / Gothenburg
EDIT: The metal coat hangers seem to now be out of stock - but I'll fix the link as soon as more go up online!
