A primitive table lamp fabricated from an antique Chinese urn is a great alternative to the ubiquitous glossy ceramic lamp.
Bungalow Designer Spotlight
One of our must-stops when we are shopping for projects in CT is always Bungalow in Westport. We’ve been buying from them for years, watching the store grow and adapt as the trends in home design have changed. When Bungalow asked us to be a part of their Designer Spotlight series, we were thrilled to be a part of it and to select our top five pieces in store right now. We always look forward to our trips to Bungalow to see what owner Wende Cohen and her formidable team have brought back from their most recent exotic excursions. With every piece there is a story, and in many cases, the team have retrofitted something unusual to give it a new purpose. So, without further ado, here are our 5 “must-haves”!
One of a pair of antique silver leaf mirrors circa late 1800’s purchased at the Paris flea market. The ladies are always bringing back beautiful mirrors like this–we’ve used them everywhere from foyers to powder rooms.
Indigo-dyed Belgium linen pillows are part of a large collection of bespoke pillows. A pair of these are sure to take your crisp white sofa up a notch!
Ultra soft, hand woven throws made with hand spun cashmere and cotton yarns, made in Nepal are super yummy and almost always make it into our installations.
Bungalow also has a lovely selection of jewelry. These earrings from JL Rocks are the perfect gift.
Next time you’re in the area, be sure to head over to Bungalow–or better yet, make a special trip out. We guarantee you’ll be inspired!
