Hawkins New York is comprised of a design duo. Nick Blaine and Paul Denoly started the company in 2013 with a range of small-scale home goods. Hawkins was founded on the aim to incorporate the concept of artisanal collective production, while maintaining a modern sensibility in design. 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. Splitting their time between Brooklyn and the Hudson Valley, their line walks the line of city style in combination with country living.
