opinions on hay hackney? also anyone know if you can order in the raf kvadrat fabrics lot places I look don't seem to offer the raf kvadrat option? I wanted to get gervasino ghost or barber osgerby vitra but as they are one piece I can't get them in the house.. so the hackney looks a ok option as it comes apart

The hay hackney sofa is definitely available to order in the raf 'pilot' fabric. Which of the raf fabric options/colours are you considering?

Just picked up a PH5 but 2021 don't offer a fitting service or even give a recommendation… anyone know of a good electrician in North London? Would be really appreciated!

Can anyone recommend somewhere to get a cushion made? I have a nelson bench that needs softening.

Having a bit of a clear out soon, so I'll be selling four black Vitra Eames DAX chairs if there's any interest here. Might be selling a pair of EA 108 aluminium group chairs too.

As pops said I have the Hackney in a raf fabric. The fabric is great, the mrs hates the couch though and refers to is a sack of spuds. It doesn't come apart, I seem to think you can fold the arms out but the base unit is one piece. Most places will order it for you in the raf fabric even if they don't advertise that they do so, think I ordered all the fabric swatches through haus

I'm looking too, Hay do a similar range, which Iooks nice, not sure if it's any cheaper though. I'm sure I saw something similar on Habitat and this set on made isn't a million miles away http://www.made.com/mead-bench-set-chalk-white

If you see anything else nice drop me a pm

That Hay palissade outdoor collection is very nice Russ

You could pick up a set of vintage knoll Bertoia chairs pretty cheap to use as outside chairs.
I can't afford the Saarinen outdoor table so making do with ikea rip off
