The Designer’s Spotlight today features Bungalow 5, makers of polished and sophisticated indoor furniture, lighting, wall art, and decor. Based in New York City, Bungalow 5 is famous for its unique pieces inspired by history yet designed to appeal to today’s aesthetic and contemporary style. From sketch to production, minimalist or classic, perfectionism is the goal in each design. From sofas to side tables, storage and shelving, wall art and home accents, Bungalow 5 collections are both functional and works of artistic beauty.
Bungalow 5 collaborates with artisans from around the world, with a focus on traditional craftsmanship. This includes hand-wrapped grasscloth furniture and hand-hammered metal finishes and accessories.
Cabinets & Desks
From the Meredith Collection you’ll find its modern geometric shapes and delicately curved chow foot bases. Like other Bungalow 5 storage cabinets, the Meredith is wrapped in a lacquered grasscloth. Also used as a wall treatment, grasscloth is made from natural fibers such as jute, bamboo, sea grass, arrowroot, or raffia. The Meredith measures 53.5w x 18d x 30h and includes gold finish ring pulls, two interior adjustable shelves, and back-holes for cable access. For larger storage, the Bryant Extra Large, six-drawer measures 53w x 21d x 34.5h. The Bryant Extra Large is available in white, white linen, gray, and navy blue.
The Bouquet Desk is reminiscent of classic Art Deco bungalow design with a curved, fluid front-profile of graceful lines. Each Bouquet desk is expertly hand-covered in lacquered grasscloth and provides a highly sophisticated appointment to a master bedroom or guest room. The Bouquet measures 55w x 20d x 30h and is available in natural, white, or navy blue.
The Sofas, Loveseats and Side Tables
From the Seating Collection, the popular Sinclair sofa is a sleekly modern piece with unique scalloped armrests and a frame mounted on solid wood pedestals. The Sinclair measures 91w x 35d x 28h and is available in a variety of standard or custom colored lacquered grasscloth.
The Julius Collection includes the Julius 2-Drawer Side Table. A classic cosmopolitan silhouette that harkens back to 1930s New York and the Waldorf-Astoria. The Julius two-Drawer measures 36w x 22d x 25h and includes elegant custom hardware and suede interior. Available in white or gray.
Dining and Entertaining
The Dining & Center Collection includes a stunning variety of tables and centerpieces inspired by art and art history. The Matisse / Center Dining Champagne Gold is inspired by the freeform improvisational prints from Matisse’s book Jazz. A piece of bold design that exists between the experimental and the functional, The Matisse is perfect for dinner parties and like any Bungalow 5 dining or centerpiece, is designed to compliment your art collection.
The Bungalow 5 Lighting Collection has something for every style sensibility from Art Deco to mid-century modern to antique design. The Brasilia is a simple and sleek column of sandblasted glass that ombres from dark to light green. For those of a more classic antique taste, The Emilia is a double-gourd table lamp inspired by the imperial design of the Song Dynasty (960-1279). The Emilia is available in turquoise, light green, or light blue.
The Odeon Collection
New for 2020, the Odeon Collection features the Odeon Console which mixes both the organic and the contemporary in an antique brass treatment that resembles metal. The Odeon Side Table, made of the same antique brass, is designed in a clean, geometric profile. Almost futuristic in line and form, the Odeon Collection are perfect appointments for a modern home.
Wall Art & Decor
Bungalow 5 also has an impressive portfolio of wall art and decor including the Dorado Mirror. The Dorado is made of small hand-leafed gold and silver glass arranged in a repeat pattern in the French verre eglomise style, an 18th century gilding technique. The Rain Charms and Entrances Series is a collaboration between Bungalow 5 and a small artists’ collective. The Rain Framed Silk panel features variations in brushstroke and abstract shapes painted on woven silk and mounted on a wood frame. The Rain Framed Silk panel measures 50w x 40h x 2d and is available in black or green.
