Mill Valley-based designer Laurel Harrington releases the Daisy Doo chair and bar stool collection in time for Earth Day.
The new Daisy Doo chairs from Honeydudley come in a number of finishes.
Laurel Harrington spent part of the pandemic thinking about how to deliver joy to her clients. “If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that now, more than ever, we need happiness in our homes,” says the Northern California interior designer, who has transformed homes from the peninsula to wine country for the past 20 years. Harrington now has created a new line of heirloom-quality, ethically made furniture. The company, Honeydudley, unveils its first collection with five pieces, including the signature Honey Doo chair, a whimsical embrace of form and sturdy utility with its flower petal back.
Harrington enlisted color pro Eve Ashcraft for the collection’s rich custom hues.
“There are so many beautiful furniture collections, but they often feel a bit serious. Why can’t high-end furniture be fun?” says Harrington, who enlisted renowned color expert Eve Ashcraft— who has worked with everyone from Martha Stewart to Ralph Lauren—to create a custom palette that enables clients to select from a range of finishes, lacquers, suede and leather. The latter is sourced from New York’s Townsend Leather, which only uses tanned hides from Europe.
What’s in store for Honeydudley? More bliss, of course. Harrington will launch additional pieces, including the Peace and Heart Stacked tables, this year. “I wanted to create heirloom pieces that not only bring joy but can also be passed down from one generation to the next,” she says.
