So these exist: wagons as garden lounges

Posted by

YOU GUYS. Somewhere in the world, there exists more than one Roma wagon converted into a garden house.

Jeanne Bayol and Jean-Marie Marechal live in France, where they rehab beauties like this one for a more stationary, but no less romantic life.

I feel like I’ve died and gone to Eat, Pray, Love. See more photos on this Swedish design website and revel. Revel your heart out.

  1. If you’re looking for more examples of gorgeous wagons like this, google “vardo” and lots of lovely pictures come up! 🙂

  2. A few years back I had a sociology class on habitation, and one girl held a talk about people living on the street or in waggons. Many of them, it appears, when they settle down, keep their waggon around as a refuge.

    That’s a pretty rad waggon, by the way.

    • My family used to tell stories about European-style gypsies traveling through Nebraska. I know, right? This was first-hand info, though; my grandfather told me he used to let them stay on their farm land. I’ve always wondered where those wagons ended up.

  3. This reminds me of the book, “Bed in a Tree.” It features La Serve in France, which allows you to sleep in your own gypsy wagon! There’s a range of places they describe from a gorgeous underwater hotel (that costs $8000!) to caves, prison, etc…so far we’ve just stuck with treehouses on our vacations.

  4. I think my HOA would freak out about it, but I would loooove to have one of these. I would dress in breezy skirts every day, and my son and I would go out and have tea in it.

  5. That’s in Sweden? I wonder what they do with it, come winter?

    Do the sides close up completely, or do they just have to empty it before the snow flies?
