Head up to the Pacific Northwest [12] and buy or rent your very own hanging treehouse that looks more like a place an Ewok or Jules Verne would call home [3]. The spacey spheres, designed by Tom Chudleigh, are handmade from fiberglass and local woods. Strung up from neighboring trees, each pod [13]can sleep up to four, and can be hooked up to an electric line.

German Architects Baumraum [14] are known for their extraordinary treehouses, and this one at World of Living [15] is no different. Located in Rheinau Baden-Linx, Germany [16], this treehouse rests on spindly spider legs, almost 3 storeys above the ground. Inside, the vaulted ceilings [17] are lined with giant oak leaf wallpaper, which emulates a tree canopy. Guests can relax on the rotating chairs, and take in the views of the park.
