NYIGF - Bungalow 5 new Furniture and Accessories

Recent photos from the New York International Gift Fair show the latest designs from Bungalow 5. We are loving the mirrored Catherine Desk or Vanity featured above. This piece is so versatile with its storage and the unbelievable reflection it provides to your room.
The Parsons line from Bungalow 5 is a newer line showcased originally in the summer collection. We are finally able to see some of the different styles in the various colors offered. The above Parsons Coffee Table shows texture with its lacquered grasscloth finish in Navy Blue. Such a nice change to work with navy blue when you want something a little different.
Lana Console Table and Lara Tea Table are shown in their options of mirrored and black glass. While we've seen mirrored furniture out there before, Bungalow 5 products always have that distinct accent that makes their pieces stand out. From Bungalow 5's original line, both the console and side table feature the "jacqui-legs" from their exclusive "Jacqui" line.
The Berkeley 4-Drawer Chest in Mahogany is a popular piece for its look and storage option. The mahogany finish makes it an easy fit into traditional settings, while the clean and straight lines offers the opportunity to "modern" things up a bit!
If you are at all familiar with Bungalow 5, you will instantly recognize and love the Jacqui 4 -Drawer Chest shown above. We have been placing the Jacqui line in clients' homes since Bungalow 5 first opened its doors. The collection has grown over the years, and now, we have 3- and 4-drawer pieces to work with.
Shown above is the Jacqui Desk in spring green. Featured in so many magazines, it's easy to see why it's such a draw to shoppers. The Jacqui Side Table in white looks stylish right next to it!
Welcome the new Niagra line from Bungalow 5! This is the first glimpse at the line with its brown cerused oak finish as seen in the above photograph and gray cerused oak as seen in the photograph below. The Niagra 3-Drawer Side Table is stylish decor that can easily be used in bedroom or living spaces.
Niagra Console is shown above in gray cerused oak. The wood grain is fascinating, and we love their color choice for its neutral "easy on the eye" hue.
Finally, check out the Frances 3-Drawer Side Table above in Navy Blue. The lacquered grasscloth finish is so sharp in the regal colorway. Brushed gold knobs will take your breath away. So there you have it! What do you think about everything new from Bungalow 5?



Better Homes and Garden - Mod Link Pillow

January issue of Better Homes and Garden magazine features the "honey" color and includes the Mod Link pillow in mustard found at Clayton Gray Home.
The article quotes New York City designer Elaine Griffin saying "Honey is great for the color-phobic. Think of it as beige after it has had a cocktail or after spending a day on the beach."
Since the Mod Link pillow looks like a cocktail itself, we couldn't agree more. Graphic pillows are fun to infuse playfulness to a room. Square shape is always easy to decorate with and we especially love linen. Grab a pair and start to decorate!

House Beautiful January 2010 - Ceramic Lamps

If you haven't checked out the "Ceramic Lamp" round up in House Beautiful Dec/January 2010 magazine, you really should. What a great assortment of lighting put together by Orli Ben-Dor.
We couldn't help but notice a few of our favorites here at Clayton Gray Home.
Batik Table Lamp by Arteriors Home - the blue and white pattern to this table lamp is what makes it so unique. In person, you see a quality light fixture with a carefully thought out pattern.
As you all know, anything from Bungalow 5 appeals to Clayton Gray Home. We were thrilled to see the Christina Lamp in Turquoise make the House Beautiful list. The crackle finish and deep color of this simple fixture looks regal on metal, wood or glass. We have had it on every surface and determined it's a winner!
Anyone familiar with Barbara Cosgrove Lighting knows that the "family" owned and run company, continues year after year to produce unique and beautiful table lamps. The simplicity of the Porcelain Bird Lamp above appeals to us on so many levels. The detail is unbelievable!
The list continues....
Finally the Annabelle Table Lamp from Arteriors Home is a fun addition to the list. The swirling psychedelic pattern brings wit and whimsy to your look. Added bonus for this lamp would be all of the great colors that can really tie in a look for you. We reach for this lamp quite a bit when we just need that pop of color or personality. So there you have it! Looking for a ceramic lamp? These are our favorites!
