Designs Within Reach + Airstream = Glamping Heaven

Designs Within Reach, the same furniture retailer that brought you the bottomless beach chair, is teaming up with legendary motor home-maker Airstream to develop a “trailer for the mobile young modernist -rock climbers, surfers, dot-com guys,” according to the New York Times.

This looks very similar to Deseo’s “modular caravan” that Willy wrote about last week. Is camping becoming chic? I’ve noticed a trend lately, where things once considered rustic are getting makeovers to appeal to a whole new market — one which favors Paul Smith over Paul Bunyan.

Luxury comes at a price, however. This 16-foot trailer shown above starts at nearly $50,000, and is available in early June. Glamping is alive and well.
