New York furniture brand picks Dallas Design District for first-ever store
The Dallas Design District may be chock-full of showrooms, but there’s always room for more. And come June 13, a big one is arriving. New York-based furniture and home-goods company Bungalow 5 is debuting a 7,000-square-foot retail store and freestanding wholesale showroom at 1201 Oak Lawn Ave., #180. It will be the company’s first retail location, and it chose Dallas because it’s ripe with design-minded residents.
“Dallas is a regional design hub with a large audience that is interested in modern design trends. This space offers the unique opportunity to display all of our products under one roof," partner John Roudabush says in a release. “We hope our presence in the Dallas Design District demonstrates gratitude for the region’s support and provides opportunities to show fans how to incorporate Bungalow 5 products into the creation of beautiful rooms.”
The Design District showroom will include the entire Bungalow 5 product line, which features everything from furniture and decorative accessories to designer lighting and wall decor.
The company was founded in 2001 by friends Roudabush, Luca Rensi, and Marina Lanina, as a way to offer chic and unique home furnishings at an affordable price point.
“When I was a decorator, it was always an impossible struggle to find anything in a special finish, color, or shape for clients who were price conscious. Every project has rooms that need to be fashionable without costing a fortune. I believe that Bungalow 5 fills that void,” says Rensi in the release.
The company, which specializes in modern interpretations of European- and Asian-inspired living, is known for its innovative use of unexpected materials like grass cloth, lacquers, cerused oak, and curved glass.
