Interview with Samantha Balogh- Creative Director for Hawke & Thorn
When was the brand and how it came about ?
The idea for Hawke & Thorn was to create products for the home that go beyond trends and convey personality into practical pieces that can be used and lived in. We are an up and coming brand with a small but growing collection of exclusively designed pieces for the home.
What distinguishes the products by Hawke & Thorn ?
Quite a few of the pieces in our collection are conversation starters. They are unique and quirky objects that add interest to the home.
Where do the inspirations at Hawke & Thorn ?
Design isn’t a linear process; inspiration comes from a multi-faceted approach. Every one of our collections has its own unique style: each of our designers works with a theme, but we allow them complete freedom to be creative and make their own signature collections.
What should I consider when setting up my apartment ?
Beautiful interiors often start with a blank canvas - Think light colored walls and warm hardwood floors. White furniture can make your home look brighter and larger and you can bring in accent colors through the accessories and decorations. Colourful Cushions, Throws, Vases, Rugs and even Decorative Furniture pieces. The canvas might be white, but the colour is splashed everywhere.
Who is the typical customer of Hawke & Thorn and the countries in which you sell your products?
Our products are all designed by women, with a female client in mind. Our customer is well-read and well-traveled. She is very aware and urban minded. She's into cooking, entertaining, and wine. She has a natural curiosity about the world. Her identity is a tangle of connections to activities, places, interests, values, and aspirations.
