WONDERINN MIRRORED GLASS CABIN, AKERSHUS, NORWAY

This magical cabin was created by a nomadic couple who fell in love with the view, the forest, the animals, and the seclusion. “We wanted to draw people into the nature,” they tell us, “and give them an incredible experience through simple but comfortable and stylish amenities and structures.” Clearly, they succeeded.

Careful to avoid clear-cutting forested land, Peripherie Design Studios favored weaving this home into the land, with folding geometric lines, allowing nature and light to dictate and shape its design.

THE RAVEN HOUSE, ONTARIO, CANADA

This cabin tucked away in the trees will fuel your inner Thoreau. It’s the ideal spot to while away the hours walking in the woods, reading next to the fire, stargazing from the loft, and taking refuge in the simple life.

FOREST PUB, CORNWALL, ENGLAND

This back-to-basics escape is immersed in nature, with trees growing through its deck and a stream winding underneath its raised frame, tumbling into a waterfall below. Go on, shed the modern world for a while.

THE PODS, LES CERNIERS, SWITZERLAND

Centered around a central chalet, these eco-pods appear both natural and out of this world. Nestled above breathtaking mountain vistas, they coexist in the rugged natural environment by clever structural camouflage.

A place of unplugged peace, where you can leave the world behind, this A-frame cabin lets you embrace simplicity and marvel at nature’s amazing display. It’s classic design where you’d least expect it.

PAN TREE TOP CABINS, GJESÅSSJØEN, NORWAY

These long-legged lovelies were inspired by the homes of Tove Jansson’s round-bellied Moomins, by the tent-like shape of American A-frame cabins, by the soaring trees around them, by firetowers, and by power-line towers.

THE BOX HOP, ROCKBRIDGE, OHIO

This creative home in the woods near Hocking Hills State Park was brought to life with three shipping containers and acres of imagination. It’s a different take on cabin life that highlights both sustainability and the best of modern design.
