For the guest house/office commission, Dallas-based studio Wernerfield wanted to play with the Texas location’s beautiful, airy canopy and create the sensation of a living space floating among the trees.

Filled with designer furniture (there’s a several-thousand-dollar lounge-chair budget alone here), anything could look good. But this simple, dare I say serene space does seem like the ideal live-work setup, even if all you had were a yoga mat and electric tea kettle.
And this ashtray. And this paddle game and the remote control and that’s all you need.
