Case in point: Hay’s powder-coated steel shelving unit, which comes in dusty blue and forest green and is now officially available to buy in the U.S.  Due to popular demand (eagle-eyed fans of the Danish brand might remember when it was temporarily sold at the MoMA Design Store a couple years ago), the retailer is rolling out the best-seller Stateside.
