Store History

  • Headquarters: New York, New York

In the middle of all the ICFF madness yesterday, we ran up to Bungalow 5's Manhattan showroom at 251 West 30th Street to check out their new collections and meet up with Jeanine Hays of Aphrochic, who's showing her pillows and table linens this month in the store. This was our first visit to the showroom, an inspiring space full of pretty patterns and glam furnishings.

Turquoise and gray are the colors of the moment at Bungalow 5, and there are lots of new mirrored finishes in the Marie and Piedmont collections. Also in style is a white lacquered grasscloth finish that's easy to wipe clean — look for it in the Valentina collection of case goods and occasional tables.

Jeanine Hays is collaborating with Bungalow 5 to showcase her Brooklyn Renaissance collection — we saw several of her signature diamond-patterned pillows and table runners, as well as a new Brooklyn Life line that Jeanine describes as her contemporary take on toile. Working with a watercolor artist, Jeanine created toile-like patterns that reference life in Park Slope and Clinton Hill, rather than the French countryside you usually see in traditional toile.

Bungalow 5 products are available to the trade through their showroom and to retail customers through Layla Grace. Aphrochic products are available online.
