Those of us who inhabit compact spaces usually have desperate moments when we would do just about anything (donate teeth, cut off a toe, wear a tutu, etc.) to have an extra room
. The thought of one more closet, a guest room or a craft studio seems like a silvery dream.
Well, now you can get your head out of the clouds and buy yourself a Cloud instead. The Swedish Cloud meeting room
is an inflatable, portable room that can be installed in only 3 minutes and moved from place to place. It includes a carrying case on wheels for ultimate mobility and a fan that quietly keeps the room inflated. At the price of $5000 and up, it’s not for everybody.
Then we got to thinking: who buys the Cloud? The description says that it is an excellent spare room for “meeting, resting and concentrating.” We imagine yoga sessions and book club chats inside a giant bubble. It certainly would be novel.
Suppose you had Monopoly money to spend on an inflatable room (and maybe an inflatable Chesterfield). What would you do with your very own Cloud?
