New York

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 designers 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.

While splitting their time between Brooklyn, New York and the historic Hudson Valley, Nick + Paul created their line on the concept of city style in combination with country living. This aesthetic can be described by elements of timeless design in its classical styling, use of quality materials and finish, all while having occasional touches of whimsy. Trendiness is not the objective, nor the end result of Hawkins products.

Hawkins New York’s search for new + unique products, collaborators, and sensory inspiration is unrelenting. We hope that our vision not only enhances the physical environments in which our customers live and work, but creates a greater understanding and appreciation for responsible, aesthetically minded design.
