About five months ago I stepped into Hayward House and immediately saw that it was a retail experience like no other. Hayward House is located in the Grosvenor Atterbury Mansion in the Upper East Side and contains the flagship store of the brand Hayward, founded by Marin Hopper (daughter of Dennis Hopper and Brooke Hayward). Part retail, part home, part old New York, Hayward House contains thoughtful details at every turn.
Yesterday I dragged Bogdana to the Upper East Side to photograph this beauty of a store, and she left with her jaw dropped, commenting it doesn’t get much more New York than that. While Bogdana snapped away, I sat down and chatted with Marin about how Hayward House came about and the family details she infused in every corner.
