Founder + The Name
Viktoria Dahlberg, originally from Stockholm, Sweden, is the Founder, Designer and Creative Director of N5 & SUNNY. In 2015 she moved into a sunshine-filled apartment on North Fifth Street in Brooklyn, New York. Her creative space quickly becomes her happy place and later on also the name behind her very own lifestyle brand, North Fifth and Sunny. Viktoria put her photography training to work as both a Senior Photo Editor at Gloss Studio and on Social Media, where she built a highly engaged online following for her Instagram account @viktoria.dahlberg. Soon, partnerships with premium fashion and interiors clients started rolling in, including Vogue, Elle, H&M, Nike, Chanel, and Gucci. But, despite connecting with thousands of people every day through her platform and living in one of the world’s busiest cities, Viktoria sometimes still felt like the loneliest person on Earth. She started thinking about ways to create more connection, humor, and joy in her life and manifested N5 & SUNNY, an eco-friendly lifestyle brand that brings human connection, happiness, and good vibes from her home to yours.
Thanks for stopping by N5 & SUNNY, a lifestyle brand created by Viktoria Dahlberg. From our base in Brooklyn, we bring happiness and style to homes across the world. We’re inspired by happy faces, creative spaces, and eco-friendly actions.
Our products are designed with a little bit of humor and the goal to inspire, as much as be inspired by, humans expressing personal style at home, the office, and beyond.
Let’s get together and share our magic with #northfifthandsunny

Embroidery + Materials
While many home furnishing brands use a screen-printing technique to transfer patterns onto fabric, we embroider each design onto the cushion cover for a better quality finish. Our embroidery technique prolongs the lifetime of each item and delivers a much longer-lasting, machine washable (use the delicate setting, no dryer!), outdoor-friendly, more premium result than the screen-printing method. We also believe natural, eco-friendly materials are always best, and craft each item from 100% cotton.
We ship each cushion cover in a reusable cotton bag inserted into a beautifully-designed, protective, cardboard cylinder that’s ready to gift — either to a friend, or just to yourself.
Dyslexia Foundation / Donation
Every founder of a new business knows that early mistakes are inevitable, but that didn’t make Viktoria feel any calmer when she excitedly opened her first shipment of N5 & SUNNY packaging to discover a spelling error glaring back at her. Instead of printing “You are loved” she had written, “Yor are loved.” Viktoria has Dyslexia and rather than wasting all of her beautiful new packagings or feeling embarrassed about the error, she decided to use this moment to raise awareness and funds for The Dyslexia Foundation. She kept the packaging (spelling mistakes and all!), started sharing her story more openly, and is donating 10% of revenue from the “Love” cushion cover to The Dyslexia Foundation.
