Object of Desire: Muji Hut

Muji hut blackened cedar siding

Muji’s newest hut (coming in August): a tiny garden getaway with a covered porch, with a blackened facade sided in burnt cedar. Price: $27,000.

Light and wind visit through another smaller window.”

So far Muji has plans to ship the huts only within Japan.
