My brother once had a Cowboy & Indian's party for his 5th birthday. I was only young at the time too but I remember the tipis my mom placed around our garden so well. Something about being inside those little tents made you feel so safe. I think I myself probably sat in there acting as my alter ego at the time, Pocahontas.
Since that day, I have been big a fan of tipis so you can imagine my excitement when I came across these beautiful grown up tipis by Montreal based designer Alexis Tricoire. The tipis are wrapped in a living blanket of grass and ivy and even work as an outdoor bedroom (I wouldn't recommend sleeping there every night but once in a while might bring us adults a little bit of excitement). Very 21st Century Pocahontas.
