Ideally, everybody would have a room in their homes that would suffice as a sanctuary or an escape from the stresses of day-to-day life. The Pause Indoor Hut is a single piece of furniture that can instantly transform one living space into an imaginary coastal escape.

Designed by Maurizio Prina, the expansive object comprises a sturdy frame of steel tubing that defines the form of a pitched roof house or a marquee. The metal has been painted a lovely seaside white and bands of interchangeable colorful cloths enclose it. Beneath this shelter is a thick mattress that's ideal for sleeping, napping or even lounging with others. Manufactured by Cattai SNC and Vittorio Buratto, the Pause Indoor Hut gives you a vacation within your own house.
