NEW YORK—Bungalow 5, the furniture design company, will cut the ribbon on a new retail store/wholesale showroom here in February.

Measuring 5,000 square feet, the location will be sited in Manhattan’s Gramercy section, on East 20th Street. “The Gramercy neighborhood offers a unique opportunity to attract not only wholesale clients but also retail clients—something we have not explored in the New York area until now,” said Luca Rensi, partner in the company.

It will be Bungalow 5’s first “retail-friendly” showroom in New York City, following the opening of a similar showroom last June in Dallas, said Erin Radue, a spokeswoman for the design firm. The showroom will be arranged in vignettes displaying Bungalow 5’s newest collections of furniture, lighting and accessories, “in such a manner that clients can instantly imagine our pieces in their own living spaces,” Radue said.

“When clients walk into our showroom, they enter into the world of Bungalow 5—a world where the notions of romance and luxury are reinvented in a modern context,” she added. “In addition, our dedicated, knowledgeable and deeply experienced showroom team gives each client a curated experience according to their needs.”

Bungalow 5 is also seeking to open other store/showrooms, although the company has not yet chosen specific markets. “But we’re certain that in the near future, we will be opening in other metropolitan areas where there are large, design-informed audiences whether [they are] interior designers or retail clients,” Radue said.
