Founded in London in 2011 by Irish born Jenny Hughes, HAYGEN in Islington has grown into a one-of-a-kind destination lifestyle store for those seeking a unique mix of beautiful home furnishings, gifts and accessories. Coming from a long legacy of entrepreneurs, Jenny studied business at university before doing a brief stint in the corporate world. She quickly became frustrated at the lack of creativity and quit to pursue her dream of opening her own boutique.

From the founder

"I'm inspired by strong female entrepreneurs, running a business can be really tough at times and you need a thick skin and determination to fight through difficult times."
