TYPES OF CONTEMPORARY FURNITURE
Seating: HAY offers contemporary sofas and sectionals, dining chairs, lounge chairs, stools, benches, and outdoor chairs that combine form and function. Many contemporary chairs, including contemporary dining chairs and side chairs, are crafted with molded plywood seats or injection-molded polypropylene shells that gently flex with the sitter for added comfort. Upholstered chairs – including contemporary sofas, sectionals, lounge chairs, and armchairs – feature high-density foam- or feather-filled cushions that resist sagging, plus and durable fabric or leather upholstery.
Desks & Tables: HAY’s selection of desks, coffee tables, dining tables, and side tables features versatile designs. Available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors, contemporary coffee tables and side tables from HAY are multifunctional and can be used in various rooms throughout the home. Some of HAY’s contemporary tables and dining surfaces feature distinct material combinations, such as an innovative Valchromat top with powder-coated steel legs, while others are crafted of solid wood for a warm materiality and lasting durability.
Shelving & Storage: Designed in powder-coated steel for durability and light weight, contemporary storage furniture at HAY is modular, multifunctional, and comes in a range of colors. If you’re looking for simple, streamlined storage, choose a powder-coated metal shelving unit, such as a white bookcase or black bookcase. For dashes of color, stack Colour Crates on bookshelves or display Kaleido Trays on tabletops. At HAY, shop storage solutions for every room, from the living room to the home office to the walk-in closet.
Outdoor Furniture: Made of weather-resistant materials, contemporary outdoor furniture at HAY is designed to last. For both small and large outdoor spaces, shop contemporary outdoor chairs, outdoor tables, and outdoor furniture sets that feature clean lines, geometric motifs, and vibrant colors. Create an outdoor setup for lounging and entertaining with outdoor lounge chairs, outdoor stools, and outdoor benches that maximize space and comfort.
