An ode to Opa's chair...

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

I can still picture the faded green leather chair that belonged to my grandfather.

We lovingly called him Opa. From this chair, Opa offered wisdom, shared laughter, and listened with interest. Picture books were poured over, a grandchild or two perched on each arm, and tales retold of life overseas. Whether it was for a quiet cup of tea, a family birthday, or the annual holiday gatherings, we could always find Opa in his chair, cigar in hand.

Years later, I am struck by how much a simple piece of furniture or accessory can become so meaningful. Though the chair may not have graced the covers of the latest interior design magazine, Opa’s chair conveyed a sense of welcome and stability. It was an integral piece of my grandparents’ home.

It is with this understanding that I was inspired to create Hugo and Company. We are committed to prioritizing meaningful design and creating living spaces for seniors in transition that are not only visually appealing but also deeply personal and enriching.

With love,


Founder of Hugo and Company
