After an intense week of to-ing and fro-ing in the sociable modern metropolis that is New York City, come Friday we often find ourselves depleted and desperate for a (gasp!) night alone save for the book we’re currently reading or our ever dependable friend, Netflix Instant.
Our favorite American naturalist and pseudo hermit, Henry David Thoreau candidly declared “I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” The charming statement speaks as much to nature’s value as it does to the satisfying self-indulgence of being alone. After taking a look at houses that are anything but private, we thought it might be nice to ease into the weekend with a roundup of delightfully antisocial design. From a mirrored stealth cap that let’s you roam even the busiest of city streets on your lonesome to the most private homes in the world to portable solutions for crowded situations, click through to check out designs that satisfy the need for alone time in every way.
