Hayden-Harnett on Design*Sponge

Here at the store, we carry a couple of really amazing lines of luxury bags. One such line is made by Brooklyn-based company Hayden-Harnett. After becoming familiar with their work though the store, you can imagine that I was thrilled to see the Design*Sponge sneak peek of the designers’ home on October 16. Since this is an inspirational space to them as well as where many of the designs originate, it is interesting to see.
