Bathed in pearly light and scented with jasmine ? table linens have never looked this good. Hence the charm of Bungalow 8, a hauntingly romantic home and fashion store that can make even the most pedestrian products seem exceedingly sexy. Sprawled over three floors in an old, decaying downtown building, Bungalow 8 is like the secret love nest of a young Ms Haversham, full of grandeur,eroticism and old world charm. There are wide, arching windows, a dusty staircase, and a decidedly sexy glass floor through which you can look down at the lower level.
The spaces unfurlthemselves lazily, revealing items from claw-footed bathtubs and old rocking chairs, to jewelry and art books. The merchandise is displayed with calculated carelessness, and it?s all ? discretely, of course ? priced to sell.
Not everything that Bungalow 8 carries, however, is worth your attention and the sometimes hefty price tags. But keep your eyes open and you?ll hit your retail sweet-spot, especially with the housewares and jewelry. Just last week we hit the jackpot at Bungalow 8. We bought a necklace made up of silve and gold silk threads ropes that undulates around the neck?guaranteed to elevate the most pedestrian outfit to straight up sexy.
