Who says that play has to be limited to children—or to the outdoors, for that mater? Bringing the outdoors in adds an element of wacky fun to any interior. Check out these five examples.
#1 - Indoor Tree House
#2 - Mini Ferris Wheel
Hey, the stuff has to go somewhere. This mini Ferris wheel for toys not only segments playthings in an understandable way for children, but adds fun and excitement that can only be found under that big tent of the greatest show on earth.
#3 - Stairway Slide
You might have seen this indoor slide circulating the web as an ingenious and discreet way to add major fun factor to a home with children. This can be a relatively simple renovation by narrowing a wide staircase and adding a simple flat surface. It’s okay. We won’t tell if you slide down yourself.
#4 - Living Room Swing
Leave it to the sadly defunct Cookie magazine to hone in on playful living. This indoor swing by French company Reso Design hangs in the middle of Boubil’s living room—and was even used to rock their son Zo to sleep when he was a baby. Fun, lighthearted and sleek.
#5 - Library Hammock
Gary Chang’s amazing “transformer” apartment in the heart of Hong Kong (see my other post for more on him) features an indoor hammock for his screening room. A fun way to bring lounging capability to a small space.
