Camping with the $50,000 Tree Tent
For $50,000, this odd tent should come with at least some of the contemporary gadgets but to my surprise, the price tag is just for the design and mattress, I suppose. Designed by Dutch sculptor and designer Dre Wapenaar, this Treetent is featured in Neiman Marcus’ Christmas Book. Nestled among the branches, up off the ground, there’s a nine-foot-diameter hardwood floor and groovy round mattress inside. The tent can accommodate a couple with ease. Still, $50K seems outrageous to me for this strange-looking tree tent. I can’t live without my gadgets!
