Day True is all about combinations. Pairings of ideas and spaces, colours and shapes. Tony Robson & Hayley Tarrington-Robson are together, a unique combination. Both have extensive experience in the kitchen/bathroom world, each pushing boundaries in design and product sourcing, in separate cities, in separate organisations, before meeting and forming their own.
Day True began in Maida Vale in 2013 and opened in Chelsea in 2015. It is ideas and brands. It is kitchens and bathrooms. It is design and living. It is Tony, Hayley and the team.
After studying at Bucks University, Hayley worked for the Nobia group, working with brands such as C.P. Hart, Magnet and Poggenpohl. She left the comfort of her senior role at C.P. Hart to follow her dream of founding a studio that designs exciting and inspiring spaces, no matter the budget. As Creative Director Hayley is responsible for designing the renowned Day True showrooms & some stunning home projects in both an interior designer and architect capacity.
After 20 years working at industry stalwarts including Jacuzzi, British Gypsum and Pilkington’s, Tony opened his first bathroom showroom, Plug, to industry acclaim in his home town of Leicester. After meeting Hayley in 2009 they developed the kitchen side of the business, before moving to London and opening Day True in 2013. Tony’s passion for product is rivaled only by his passion for food and he can often be found in the Day True kitchen with his chef’s hat on!

After achieving a BA in Fine Art at Kingston University Jamie discovered interior design was a dynamic outlet to pursue his creativity and passion for aesthetics. He came to Day True with experience from Fired Earth and West One Bathrooms but if you dig deeper into this past you’ll discover he once performed a one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe…who knew!
Neha is a highly decorated designer and comes armed with a BA Hons in Philosophy from Cardiff University and a diploma in Interior Design from KLC School of Design. If she’s not designing she’s practising with her dance troupe and has been known to high-kick her way round the showroom.

Rob studied Product Design, Innovation & Marketing at Derby University. His background varies from being a Kitchen Installer for Magnet to Installations Manager for Poggenpohl until becoming one of RotPunkt Project Managers of Trade Exhibitions, where he worked for 4 years, falling in love with the “Nuts & Bolts of the product”
During his decennial experience Rob developed such a strong passion in Customer Service and Project Management that made him stand out from the crowd, effortless. Rob likes to be active and to spend his Sunday’s mornings cycling on his road bike.
Eugenio studied Economics & Finance in Italy and then attended his Master in Marketing Management in London. He accumulated several years of experience in real estate, startups and recently returned from Singapore, where he was working as a business development manager.
