Why Get Your Hair Wet?

Twelve Spectacular Pool Houses


The Olympics definition of “Swimming”: Goggles, unflattering racing suits, swim caps, green chlorinated hair, exhausted lungs, hours of exercising without iPods. Our definition of “Swimming”: Lounging beside the pool in Eres (girls) or Vilebrequin (guys), Grey Goose gimlets in sterling silver cups, Hermes jungle towels, Jay-Z blasting from the Sonos. And, of course, a spectacular pool house. There’s no pool accessory as chic as the pool house. Whether it’s a mini-me of your ... Read More

Rest Stops for Those Real Life Tweeters

Beautiful Birdbaths


I’ve been thinking about the garden lately and one of the most beautiful and oft-forgotten garden accessories: The birdbath. For me, birdbaths conjure memories of English country estates and overgrown gardens. The Stanford White-designed house I lived in when I was young had beautiful perennial gardens – the result of my mom’s hard labor, something I never appreciated until recently – and a birdbath sat all by itself in the middle of the front yard ...

It’s Pumpkin Week at Bungalux

Pumpkins ... in Every Price Range


We at Bungalux love Halloween. Sure, one day when we have kids we may learn to hate it – we have a strong feeling our future kids’ costumes will be collaborative efforts between mom, Rachel Zoe, and Tom Ford – but for now Halloween’s a stress-free chance to eat candy we haven’t seen since we were little (Milky Way, anyone?) and watch an old horror flick on AMC while drinking spiked cider. And, of course ... Read More

You're Fired Up!

Kindle Living Heaters


As we at Bungalux are fond of saying, here's the scenario: Despite no declared revenue, no potential revenue stream, no patents, no prototype, and no business plan, your company just got funded at a billion dollar valuation by a well-known Menlo Park venture capital firm.

Our fans, for one (we at Bungalux believe we have the coolest fans around). Answer #2: Richard Schultz 1966 Collection outdoor furniture. Designed in 1966 (hence the name) at the request of Florence Knoll - if you’re new to design and don’t know who she ... Read More

Avoid Carmageddon

The Hatteras Hammock


The event of the century is happening this weekend in Los Angeles. It's the only shindig our members in LA – who are generally up for any sort of party, particularly when it involves a lot of people congregating in Bel Air – are hoping to miss. It's Carmageddon. For fifty-three miserable hours, the 405 freeway will be closed from pretty much anywhere-you'd-want-to-go to anywhere-you'd-want-to-go. So what's the alternative to car travel ... Read More
