"I believe design is our chance to tell or story, respect our past and create for our future"

Named a 2019 High Point Market Authority Style Spotter, Eric Haydel’s dedication to the design profession and creative process have earned him recognition throughout the industry. A native of Louisiana, Eric marries Southern charm with New England sensibilities to develop intriguing and distinctive design solutions.

Eric ventured into product development in 2017, introducing The Carnival Rug collection in collaboration with Dover Rug & Home. This year he is expanding his collection with the launch of a Natural Woven line.

Eric Haydel Showroom, located in Boston Design Center, houses Eric’s upholstery collection and The Club Collection, a textile collection in partnership with LebaTex. Eric was named to ASID’s Ones to Watch list in 2017, earned his post-graduate degree in Interior Architecture from Boston Architectural College, and serves on the Board for Friends of Fort Point Channel.

The design team

The process starts with a consultation where the team collaborates with the client and discusses the overall goals for the project. Based on their story a personalized interior is created that results in a beautifully layered space. Their expertise goes beyond furniture and finishes, combining their education and experience, the team provides a full service approach focusing on holistic design.

They are a multidisciplinary firm specializing in residential, hospitality and commercial design. Headquartered in Boston, they provide services both inside and outside of the New England region. The firm has been featured in several publications including Architectural Digest, New England Home, Boston Common and many others.

It's more than a bowtie, it's a lifestyle.
