The thing is, though the weather is LA is great, sometimes the sun is, well, too sunny and definitely too hot. We need shade! We need trees! We need to access our inner Kelly Wearstler and put up this pavilion.

Just the thing for escaping the noonday beams that pelt us without cease, it beckons to the kid in us who was always building forts...but in a distinctly grown-up way. Water-resistant, all four sides unzip and Velcro strips hold the sides pulled back to the tent's poles, so it can serve as a room whether the weather is sunny or not. Easy to assemble, it stores in its own duffel bag, tempting us to take it our next camping trip. Talk about setting the stage for a fabulous time!
