From Wooden Teepee Beds to Monogram Playhouse Tents

These modern day teepees amalgamate old world tradition and modern day aesthetic. The use of the Native American tent is seen in everything from fierce fashion to untraditional lamps. There is particular use for the teepee when it comes to miniature animal homes. Many companies are designing mini teepee homes for cats and dogs to be placed within the owner's house.

In fashion, brands like Free People use teepees in its look books and designers like Kenzo use teepees as a design structure for their dresses. For the home, teepees are constructed into beds for children, tents for entertaining in the back yard and as light sculptures. The teepee has been adopted by the bohemian era for everyday use.
