Travel, Explore!

With Memorial Day weekend upon us, we are ready for summer adventures of all kinds. For Holiday House NYC 2015, Vicente Wolf reminded us that getting back to nature doesn’t mean giving up creature comforts with his clever “Glamping” design.

The top floor of the Academy Mansion in NYC was transformed into a woodland scene, complete with the sounds of nature played by a Savant sound system. A custom geodesic tent provided cover for the sumptuous outdoor bedroom outfitted with a Calvin Klein bed and luxury bedding. There was even a DXV tub for bathing under the stars.

The room was inspired by sponsor Ford Explorer‘s message that “It’s one thing to travel, another to explore!”

Traditional Home, our media partner for the 2015 NYC showhouse, and Ford created a map of road trips in the vicinity of NYC to inspire you to get out and have your own summer adventures.
