Established & Sons × Jaime Hayon
$3,600 - $5,400
Spain’s Jaime Hayon references a rich episode in British history for his regal dining chair employing detailed stitching with a pattern continuously dating back to the 1500s. In both side chair or armchair versions, Tudor features a fully upholstered shell seat in black or white leather with a choice of diamond or leaf motif. In chrome or gold metallic, the chair’s slightly bulbous metal legs with a certain visual heft also allude to the florid period of Henry VIII.

Established & Sons
“We have an opportunity to do something different,” says founder Sebastian Wrong of this British brand’s approach to furniture, lighting and a smattering of tabletop essentials and clocks. “To get a piece that you would love today but also your kids would really enjoy.”
Wrong was among the dream team of innovators— Mark Holmes, Wallpaper magazine ex-publisher Alasdhair Willis, marketer Tamara Caspersz and executive Angad Paul—when the brand launched at the 2005 London Design Festival. Their mandate was encapsulated by the name: “Established,” a clue to the respected design and creators in their fold; “Sons,” a nod to the new generation of talent.
A commitment to skilled craftsmanship and cutting-edge production continues today, if only Wrong remains at the helm. After stints with Hay and other larger brands, he returned in 2017 as creative director and to contribute his own distinctive pieces.
E&S is succeeding in its goal to add to the design vernacular with works such as Amanda Levete’s striking concrete Drift series and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s breakthrough Grid modular environments. So, too, has Wrong’s own distinct work, including the Filigrana lighting that recasts traditional Venetian glassworks in an updated vernacular, and the Wrongwood furniture and trays, which he collaborated on with Brit artist Richards Woods.
"Humor reflects very much who I am…my character," says Spanish-born designer Jaime Hayon, known for his bold and whimsical design sense. As a teenager in the 1970s, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art and then opted to study industrial design in Madrid and Paris. Joining Fabrica, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, he began working closely with legendary image-maker and agitator Oliviero Toscani. After heading up the Fabrica design department, Jaime broke out with his own collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture.
A rock star in the design world with studios in Italy, Spain and the UK, Jaime's client list includes Camper, Baccarat, &Tradition and Established & Sons. He’s particularly known for tabletop objects—his irreverent approach kickstarted heritage porcelain house Lladró. Numerous awards from the likes of Icon Magazine, Wallpaper Magazine and Elle Decor (Spain) attest to his sway. "People will always look for objects that inspire them," he says, "that make them dream."
