HUGO & Co. is a lifestyle brand built on the philosophy of simple, curated living. Design that is mindful of the things we own and the purpose they serve. Personal trumps perfect. Stories over sameness.
HUGO & Co. has experience designing dementia care homes and spaces for seniors and carries this knowledge through to clients who may be transitioning into dementia or Alzheimer care facilities.
The name HUGO & Co. is a nod to founder Monica de Wit’s heritage – HUGO is a family name
and can be found dotted throughout the family tree. It speaks of a Dutch immigrant family
with a strong work ethic and simple lifestyle. It is these values that the HUGO & Co. brand
is built upon.
HUGO’s design manifesto speaks of well-being and the experience a space can provide.
Function…values…..stories….the feeling a space creates…and the ability is has to restore
our mind and body.
Monica de Wit has spent most of her professional life in the design world.
She has a BAA in Fashion Design and a Diploma in Interior Design.
Monica started her career over 20 years ago in the fashion industry and
held roles such as Designer, Merchandiser, Stylist, Product Manager,
Creative Director and Instructor. It was a very natural shift for her to apply
her knowledge of textiles, colour theory and design to interiors, and in
HUGO & Co. offers design with soul…being purposeful with the things we bring
into our lives creating peace and providing clarity in a world full of clutter.
