Chateau & Bungalow launched in the Fall of 2009 featuring a collection of inspired interiors, events and objets suitable for a range of styles from the cozy beach cottage to the grand mansions of our home town of Newport, RI. In July of 2013, Chateau & Bungalow opened it’s first store at 80 Thames Street in Newport, RI. We believe that your home and events should be filled with things that make you happy and that quality, not quantity is the key to living the good life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find the perfect piece at a yard sale. We love color, monogramming, using objects in unusual ways, and timeless pieces.
