Indoor Tepees: Trending Up
From New York, rich urban hipsters dishonor indigenous people by replicating native dwelling as a way to escape their own opulence.
Karyn Starr, 35, is a personal stylist with clients all over the five boroughs — but one of her favorite places in the world is the indoor tepee she had built in the Clinton Hill townhouse she shares with her husband and her 3-year-old son.
“There’s a market in tepees,” says Starr, who changes the look of her conical indoor shelter with the season — and even had a cellist play in it during a Christmas party. “In the winter, we had snowflakes hanging inside.”
