Pippa O’Connor and Brian Ormond have lost thousands, after well-known furniture company Hayburn & Co went bust this week.

Earlier this week, heartbroken celebrity makeup artist Michelle Regazzoli-Stone revealed to her followers that the company designing her “dream” kitchen had suddenly ceased trading – despite the fact that she handed over a €12,000 deposit earlier this year.

The mother-of-two spoke to Joe Duffy on Liveline today, and said that nobody answered when she and her husband drove up to the company’s address in Ballymena on Tuesday.

During the interview, it was also revealed that fellow influencer Pippa O’Connor and her husband Brian Ormond had paid them €3,000 just last week for new doors.


Hayburn & Co.’s website now reads, “Due to difficult trading conditions, the business has ceased trading with immediate effect. All known creditors, including those customers who have fully paid or paid in part for goods are being contacted by post.”

“A creditors meeting has been convened for 5th December 2018 at 10.30am at the offices PKF-FPM Accountants Ltd, 1-3 Arthur Street, Belfast, Co Antrim, BT1 4GA to place the company into a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation. Creditors only will be entitled to attend this meeting and no further information can be given until after this meeting is held.
