Do you live in the Denver area and love our style but need help figuring out how to integrate it into your existing decor? No problem. Our professional designers know exactly how to help, and there's no charge for the service!
Either contact us at 303-300-3332 to make an appointment, or just add this to your cart and check out, and we'll be in touch shortly. In-home design services require a $500 deposit, which will be credited toward any item you purchase from Modern Bungalow.
How it works:
After a conversation gathering information on your needs, ideas and style, our designer will come to your home bearing lots of samples of rugs, furniture, tile, paint, wood, and anything else you need for inspiration. After gathering your preferences and choices, our designer will create a design concept especially for you, with recommendations and ideas for your home.
We can give ideas and recommendations on all home decor, including:
The fine print: In-home design service includes 1 (up to 2 hour) visit to your home, associated phone calls and emails, and design concept with specific recommendations. We're happy to provide additional consultation, home visits, or advice for a $59 hourly fee.
At Modern Bungalow, it's our mission (see what we did there?) to curate a collection of the finest quality in furniture, rugs, lighting, and accessories.
Every item in our store has been selected for its quality, and we stand behind every maker in our shop. We work with local artisans and often have personal relationships with the people who made the items that we sell. If you purchase something from us and it does not live up to your expectations or our standards, we hope you will let us know right away so that we can make it right.
Solid wood furniture:
Wood is a natural material, and has inherent variations which give it the character that we love. It will "breathe", expanding and contracting with normal temperature and humidity changes. For your comfort, and to protect your furniture, use a humidifier or air conditioner to keep your home's relative humidity at around 35%. If you are comfortable, so is your wood furniture. Avoid placing your furniture in front of a heat source such as a register. Some darkening over time is natural, so a brand-new piece may not look exactly like an older one for some period of time.
Allow 30 days for the finish on your new furniture to cure. After this period, care and cleaning are simple. Coasters are not necessary, just wipe up any moisture and clean as normal. Use a trivet for very hot items, and protect or pad surfaces that you use for writing so as not to etch them with pen or pencil.
We recommend Aristo Shield, the preferred protective polish of Simply Amish, for regular cleaning. Aristo Shield dusts, cleans, and helps protect the surface from scratching or marring. It removes smudges and fingerprints. When used routinely, its anti-static additive reduces dust build-up.
With proper care, hand-knotted wool rugs can last a lifetime and beyond.
First, be sure to use a quality rug pad. This relieves the backing of wear, prevents abrasion, and prevents particles from settling inside the backing. Vacuum as normal to keep dust, dirt, and grit out of the rug. Never vacuum the fringes with the beater bar, instead use a brush or hose attachment. Clean spills quickly, and spot clean with a mild solution safe for wool rugs. Rotate the carpet once or twice a year to ensure even wear. Professional cleaning can freshen up the look of the rug every 5 years or so. Modern Bungalow can recommend a cleaner with experience cleaning quality wool carpets.
All of our fixtures are made of top quality materials such as metal, glass, mica and wood, constructed with care to stand the test of time. Stained glass fixtures will often arrive with an oily appearance, due to oils used in the process of making the piece. This can be cleaned with a household cleaner like Windex or 409 without damaging the fixture.
Mica shades must be cleaned with care to avoid snagging the flakes and damaging the mica over time. Our makers recommend using your vacuum cleaner's upholstery attachment to periodically dust the shade, and Formby's oil soap for cleaning the base.
Take care to note whether your art pottery piece from Modern Bungalow is water safe or not. Many art pieces are not meant to hold water, which will damage the glaze. In the case of these pieces, just use a glass vial insert if you'd like to use them to hold flowers.
Other accessory pieces:
With your shipment, we will include information specific to the maker of your handcrafted treasure, to keep it looking great for a lifetime.
UPS Ground shipping is free on all items except furniture. A delivery fee of $299 applies for furniture delivery and in-home setup, regardless of order size. Unfortunately, at this time we only deliver to the 48 contiguous US states, no international shipments. Contact us if you need an express shipment and we'll bill you directly for the difference.
If you live in (or would like to visit!) the Denver metro area, you’re always welcome to pick up online orders at our store during store hours at no charge.
We will refund the purchase price of any item (with the exception of custom orders) any time you are unsatisfied for any reason within 30 days after purchase. You will be responsible for shipping back to our Denver store, and items must arrive in the same condition in which you received them. We will send you a return shipping label and deduct the expense from your refund. Returns must be in original packaging.
If you receive a broken or damaged item, please notify us within 48 hours so that we may place a claim with the shipping company. In the case of furniture deliveries, you must inspect the items upon arrival to warrant that they were received in good condition. If they are damaged or defective, note any issues, take photos and contact Modern Bungalow as soon as possible so that we can work with either the shipping company or the artisan and make it right.
