Allan’s Obsessions: My Favorites This Week

I admit that I have really enjoyed this past week’s weather, maybe a bit too much. Morning bike trips for a daily dip in the ocean, the water is perfect now, a bit of work and maybe a bit too much time spent on the balcony and my new day bed. Honestly, I can’t help it, but if it wasn’t for corona, I would probably have been in LA right now. Oh well. Good news is, Mr. LA just bought tickets to spend 3 weeks in Copenhagen next month! Finally. It’s been 4 months since I saw him last. Okay, enough about me, it’s Friday and time for another of my obsessions to inspire you, now go enjoy my favorite spaces, products and my new playlist this week.

This week I am taking you around the world from the Netherlands to South Africa to Copenhagen and to the US. From newly discovered design brands to a new must-see showroom and great shoppable bargains to get you in the summer mood.

As always, hit play on that new Bungalow5 Weekly Playlist  and scroll down for everything fabulous. Have fun!

A Smart & Simple Dutch Designed Table

Starting the journey with a Dutch interior brand, Studio Henk. They create stunning, simple and elegant piece, like their recently launched slot dining table. It’s available with different legs, but how beautiful are these solid curvy ones?

Deep, Curvy & Generous

One of my favorite design duos, GamFratesi have created yet another stunning piece for Gubi – its in stores in August. Inspired by a contemporary take on the midcentury Scandinavian design tradition, the Sejour Lounge Chair’s soft, rounded backrest envelops its solid, welcoming seat, offering tremendous comfort and an invitation to stay awhile, as its French name suggests.

Structural & Strong Lined

You know I have a soft spot for Cape Town and South Africa in general. Their design scene might not be widely known, but in fact more and more of their designers are available in Europe and the US – and Lemon is one of them. I have been obsessing over their very structural and strong lined timeless side table piece. I love the simplicity of the shape.

Summer Sheets

If you only make one upgrade to your bedroom for the summer, you should really switch up your winter sheets to a nice summertime combo: Crisp cotton percale sheets and a lightweight quilt or a thin cashmere throw. I know many people like the weight to the bed coverings, which is why a quilt is a good idea. It will also make your bed look super stylish during the day. One of my favorites, rarely do sales, and they are just on the too pricey side for my wallet. However, Parachute’s Last Chance* section is a great source for soon-to-be-discontinued products, but you might be lucky. Favorite picks: This Flannel Quilt* and This Pinstripe Linen Top Sheet*

Copenhagen Got A New Must-See Showroom

Today in fact. Ferm Living have been working around the clock to finish their new HOME – and a new must-see showroom. It’s open for everyone, as it also serves as their very own flagship store.

Dress Up for the Summer

Can we please end this week’s obsession with the fact that my favorite lightweight cotton blazer* is on sale at Arket. It is dark blue and goes with basically everything – a great way to dress up just a bit throughout the summer.
