The Stitch Room

We wouldn't be surprised to learn that many of AT's DIY readers were prolific fort makers as kids. We used to drape blankets across a set of orange velour chairs on wheels in our family's finished basement. To this day, we crave small, cozy nests within larger spaces. We were transported back in time when we discovered the Stitch Room by designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Does this conjure up fort-making memories for you?...

The Stitch Room, which we spotted on Inhabitat, was designed by the Bouroullec brothers for the 2007 Vitra Design Museum's MyHome exhibition. The space is constructed from eco-friendly Kvadrat fabrics, and aluminum tubes help to create the structure for the space.

We're certain that this post will prompt "what's the point?" responses but we think it's worth considering the Stitch Room as inspiration for creating smaller playful nooks in a loft space or in a child's room. And if nothing else, we love the last photo below, which conjures up memories of kindergarten nap time.

What do you think? We'd love to hear about your fort-making memories...
