Garden Pods come in all shapes, sizes and prices. Whether you want an extra room to work from or just somewhere to curl up with a good book, there's a pod out there with your name on it. Here are a few of my favourites.
I could spend days happily suspended in the Nestrest. It's designed by Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety and is available from www.dedon.de
If you need a garden room but want something a bit different then an Archipod could be just the ticket. It comes in sections so it can be carried through the house. I saw this at Grand Designs Live 2010 and loved it then. It's surprisingly spacious inside (a bit like a rustic tardis!)
This outdoor daybed is called Igloo and can be fund at Skyline Design but has a stalk and therefore resembles a huge apple. It just makes me want to climb in and curl curl up like a hamster.
If you really want to get away from it all then how about one of these spheres by Free Spirit Spheres? You need some tall trees and a head for heights, but once you're tucked up inside you could write a novel without any distractions apart from birdsong and the odd visit from a squirrel!
This garden room from Roost gives you the the option of a grass roof. It's small and perfectly formed and I could set my easel up in here quite happily.
Unfortunately all I have room for is the old fashioned kind of pod like these from Seedparade
