Yes I think I could force myself to put up with that too. Or any of those 'tent' things you get on safari in Africa as long as they come with mosquito nets, champagne, plumbing, silver service and lots of evocative textiles.

love it. at the bookstore we sometimes spent time looking at sites like this - http://www.campaignfurniture.com/
it's true! and one time in Edinburgh i stumbled across an art show of modern nomadic furniture design. pieces stitched together from otherwise wasteful bits of animal fiber, stools that slide into one another to become benches/bookcases/beds. fantastic!

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
