omg that is so cool
hanging over the water and everything
I want one, and the garden that goes with it
I saw the picture of the guy above water circulating tumblr last year and I was in awe!!! Thank you so much for giving me the name of these wonderful things and more pictures to look at!!!! <333
I could swing all day above the water and just read books and magazines.
And drip my hair in the water…
I need one too, hanging down a tree branch in my backyard. I could practically live in it!!
wow this looks amazing and so relaxing!
wow – such a dream. i think i would spend all day in there.
oh yes i would love a nest rest! the resort where we stayed on our honeymoon had something similar to those but they were resting on the ground. they were really awesome to relax in and sip a cold beverage 😀
yes, it’s great…i guess it’s like in a cocoon there 🙂
I wish I was in one right now.
all i’ve been thinking about all day. i’m more tired than i have been in quite some time. ahhh wish i could just sleep the day away.
Could not locate a price on one, you know, in case I wanted to save up.
That one hanging over the water looks nice but I ask you, how is someone supposed to get into it? Even if it turned to face the shore you couldn’t step in from that far out. The model must have walked out in the cold water and changed pants once in his nest!
Sigh, hipster fakery at work?
Holy. Crap. I want one SO bad!!!! These are amazing!
I found a price a while ago. I think it was a couple thousand dollars. Not surprised by the price. It is pretty unique.
uhuh. in this exact form.
Yes… yes I definitely need a rest nest! how awesome. I wish I had the appropriate creek location as well! It’s like a grown-up cubby!
Shelley, getting in would be easy, just somehow pull the nest in towards land to climb in. However a fairly complex pulley system would be needed to accomplish getting back to dry land.
Above water is nice, it provides natural cooling. However, what would happen in floods? I love it, but I can see so many things going wrong (tree branches breaking, critters using it as a home, etc)
thanks.. I have a new subject to daydream about I guess!
Wish i had a garden like that, with a big tree in it and nice weather all year long… o how life in the netherlands s?cks big time!
love your blog!
I have a papasan chair hanging from a low tree branch in my back yard, it has a similar effect. Just not as much of a cocoon. But still very relaxing and comfy. (if you try this, make sure to use parachute cable. not regular rope.)
how amazing would it be to have sth like that hanging in ur garden?!?! love love love
I need and want a couple of these for me and my children….. This is an investment that can wait until I get my 3 acres with my mansion in Florida….. 2 or 3 years down the road…. its my dream and my fantasy and no one can hinder it!…. I remember seeing a creation of this sort a few years back in an nature magazine….
Shelley… yes. I saw this pic a while ago somewhere else and it immediately annoyed me. I think I’m probably more annoyed that I don’t have a nest rest, though. Nor a tree. Or a calm, watery oasis nearby. So this is really a moot point.
wow. that’s giving a whole new perspective to the meaning of cocoon! ut just makes me wonder how one can get inside the one hanging over the lake? over through the branch? cool.
A couple thousand dollars? No. I emailed the store they had in New York and they told me that is clocked in at $14,000. Yeah… dream.. ruined
Okay to answer the question of how dude got in the nest above the water… a boat. Clearly whomever took the pic moved said boat before snapping the shot. But imagine rowing your little kayak up to your nest rest and climbing in to read a book. 🙂
That’s so fun.
I want to go there…
I have the perfect setting to hang this. Not only at my house, but at the beaurtiful rustic event center I own in Texas. Where can I buy one of these??!!! I would appreciate any suggestions on where to go to purchase.
how did the guy get into there ?
These are amazing!
This is called a Nestrest. It is designed by Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety. (Website: http://www.dedon.de/en/)
It is actually $11,000. I’m sure that when a website does not have pricing it’s products are usually made for people who don’t ask for prices when they shop .. aka the financially elite.
How amazing would that be though.. if beautiful design like that could be readily available for everyone to share…?
Would love to have one or two…..Terrific design.
I will pay anyone 20,000 for a nest rest
I know the website/Company is Dedon. These things are Amazing. However they supposedly cost like 15,000 dollars. Not really worth the price tag. P.S. they are called the nestrest no space.
$11k w/o cushions ?… $3k more for the cushions ?…. It occured to me that (aside from the specific material) manufacturing the concept myself wouldn’t be so hard. Just have to figure out what material considering weight/weight capacity issues. Someone could make a FORTUNE mass producing similar concepts at realistic prices.
fukn oath paul u really hit the nail on the head chieflet
one word bali dawwgg aww wait thats 2 words daym
I found a nest rest in Mykonos this summer! and it was so cool! haha
