Camping Out3 of 10
With the lack of guest privacy in her brother's loft, artist Sally Scott came up with an instant guest room: a custom-made indoor tent. This canvas dwelling has been such a hit that the duo is now turning the urban camp idea into a business, Shim Shim Co. The tents are spacious enough to accommodate a bed, side table and chair and can be easily taken down when not in use.
