Hawkins New York was born out of a palpable void in the lifestyle market for quality, accessible, home goods. Citing a lack of range in small-scale home goods production, Hawkins was founded on the aim to incorporate the concept of artisanal collective production, while maintaining a modern sensibility in design.
Founded in 2013 by Nicholas Blaine + Paul Denoly, the brand is an all-encompassing marriage of their two design aesthetics. Nick, coming from a fashion and visual merchandising background brings a taste for clean, modern, and muted design. Paul, comes from a background in product development and buying. He offers a strong sensibility for color, texture, and organic form. In this vein, their line was born out of not only a feeling of necessity, but out of a personal lifestyle that presents a compelling confluence of design, place, + life.
