Barbed welcome the Palissade collection from Hay

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve recently teamed up with Danish designers Hay, and we’re now stocking their extremely popular Palissade collection.

Established at the beginning of the 21st century, Hay have kept accessible design at the heart of their ethos, and they have since grown to become internationally appreciated with industry awards to show for it. They are a welcome addition to the growing list of talented international brands that we stock here at Barbed, and we’re sure their innovativeness and eye-for-style will prove a big hit with our customers - interest is already brewing from many of you who have recently visited one of our two London showrooms.

With the summer season now in full swing, this could be the perfect time to give your garden furniture a fresh makeover if you haven’t done so already. It’s never too late!

Designed to suit any outdoor environment

Hay’s Palissade outdoor furniture collection is made up with furniture pieces that make a bold statement, with a strong graphical design that consists of steel tubes and slats. The talented French design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec tentatively worked on the Palissade collection for two years, and the result is 13 balanced pieces that are adaptable to suit any outdoor space.

From family gardens, terraces and balconies, through to commercial use in cafes and public areas - the collection offers a strikingly timeless feel with a modern edge that allows it to combine effortlessly with any environment and for any purpose. This is achieved through the imaginative Scandinavian influence that Hay make great use of, and this collection in particular puts 1950s and 1960s style in a modern contemporary context.

Built robustly, but comfort and functionality remain

The Palissade dining chairs, armchairs, dining tables and benches are built with robustness thanks to the use of electro-galvanized steel that allows it to withstand strong winds, but the collection still manages to emit an elegant and beautifully minimal vibe. Each piece was designed to age well with the application of outdoor powder coating, and the muted colour palette range adds to its versatile appearance. Despite the stern and robust build of each piece, comfort and functionality are two noticeable characteristics that remain, with quilted cushions designed to fit the form of the chairs and benches like a glove.
