The Kettal Cottage Provides Privacy and Shelter for Relaxing Outdoors

At first glance, someone may mistake the Kettal Cottage for either a very small hut or a luxurious tent. They wouldn't be too far off, except for the fact that it is more of a sheltered lounge bed. Instead of providing cramped quarters or portability, it offers a romantic and private way to relax outdoors.

Created by Milan-based designer Patricia Urquiola for the Spanish company Kettal, the Kettal Cottage is a modern, house-shaped retreat that will put people at ease just looking at it. Beneath the slanted roof lies a chaise-style seating built for two. By the looks of the images, people can personalize the Kettal Cottage by choosing what fabrics and finishes suit them and their home best. Nevertheless, the wooden frame will complement many spaces.
