Allan’s Obsessions: My Favorites This Week

Another week went by, I was happily attending the first couple of press events. I know it might seem odd to some, but Denmark very low numbers on new cases. It feels good with a bit of normality and to be around other people again, many I haven’t seen since January. In other good news, which you might saw yesterday on my IG, there is news in my green card process, I have been called in for the last interview, so fingers crossed. Okay, enough about me, it’s Saturday and time for another of my obsessions (a day later than normal, I know) to inspire you, now go enjoy my favorite spaces, products and my new playlist this week.

This week I am sharing the most picture perfect Lake Como villa, a dream holiday location, a few new product releases to hit the store later this year, one for the bedroom and one for the kitchen. I also found a great way to celebrate pride and support LGBTQ+ in your own home, along with a few other cool shoppable designs.

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

Lake Como Paradise

High on my list of dream holidays is a stay by Italy’s Lake Como, though this home might be out of my reach, you can still dream right? Designed by Bangkok- and Singapore-based interior designer Albano Daminato, Villa Peduzzi, a 1909 mantion, is a nine-bedroom villa featuring original mosaic tiles and beautiful interior.

Made for Sunny Adventures

Probably one of the biggest menswear turnarounds since David Beckham, men’s sandals have become a bona fide trend. And I am not complaining. Made for adventures in the sun. Crafted from a recycled technical fabric, these sandals* are ideal for a casual dinner and outdoor activities alike.

Harmony in the Bedroom

You may remember me mentioning that one of my favorite bed companies DUX collaborated with Norm Architects on a range of headboards. The Anna Headboard is a simple, Japanese inspired piece that will just complete the overall look of your bed. They even designed a bedside table that connects with the frame.

Pride of Place

Honestly, I’ve seen many failed attempts from brands to design something to celebrate Pride. The Eames Pride Hang-it-All* is one of the better in my opinion. I have always loved the coat-hanger anyway, so this Pride color combination just makes it extra cool. For every sold hanger Herman Miller is donating $25 to OutRight Action International, a global nonprofit organization whose mission is to support human rights and fundamental freedoms for LGBTQ+ people everywhere. Celebrate Pride at home with this classic piece updated in a rainbow spectrum.

Iconic Stoneware is Back

Throughout the late 70s and 80s most Danes will remember the rustic stoneware collection called Ildpot designed by Danish design icon Grete Meyer in 1976. For decades the collection has been out of production and could only be found on flea markets around the country – if you were lucky. Now, FDB will return the iconic stoneware to the Danes dinner tables, from September you’ll be able to find it on shelves across the country again.

Danish Design on Sale

Danish design store Nytibo is clearing out their display models saving you up to 50% on great designer pieces like Little Petra and Eiermann table.
