What if we told you you could own your very own Ewok-meets- [2]Aarnio [3] hanging treehouse [4]? Canada-based Tom Chudleigh creates these bubblicious Free Spirit Eco Spheres [4] that sway amidst the coniferous forests of the Pacific Northwest. Available for purchase or for rent, they offer a whimsical new way to experience the outdoors.

Chudleigh’s simple floating spheres [5] are hung like pendants from the treetops. Each sphere is handcrafted from fiberglass and locally sourced wood, can accommodate up to 4 people, and is capable of accepting an electrical line for electricity and heating. A weblike support system ensures that the spheres stay stable, an they can be reached by spiral staircases wound ’round the tree trunks.

Free Spirit Eco Spheres [5] provide for the perfect outdoor retreat; as Tom says, “they occupy a truly unique place in the world while providing a habitat for the un-tamed spirit that exists in us all.”
