Jaime Hayon (Madrid, 1974) continues to be one of the most recognized Spanish designers on the international panorama. When in 2006 BD Barcelona Design decided to opt on his designs for the successful Showtime Collection, he was still an emerging youngster with an artistic profile which was quite common back then, which he, as the years have gone by, has refined.
The Gardenias Collection is the second grand one for BD and has thrived on the same virtues as the first. It has quality, personality, elegance, the right point of romanticism and lots of versatility, just right for the home as well as contract.
The furniture collection is divided for outdoor pieces, with the purpose of recuperating classic elegant furniture for the garden with contemporary style, and the indoor collection, that includes an armchair and a sofa with a sophisticated imagery, now presented with new finishes and upholstery.
The Gardenias added a side table carrying the designer’s distinct mark. The Monkey side table is a useful sculpture, made of solid architectural concrete for indoor and outdoor use.
