Neiman Marcus Glamping Yurt

Inspired by the 1960’s television show I Dream of Jeannie, Neiman Marcus enlists yurt-maker Rainier and designer Rebecca Vizard to create “Dream Folly” to be part of the most recent Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.

The yurt itself was designed and constructed by the Seattle-based company Rainier. Rainier has been in the tent business since 1896 starting with supplying tents to gold prospectors en route to Alaska and later on supplying WWII troop tents to the US government. More recently they’ve refined their manufacturing and design processes and now focus primarily on yurts.


Here’s an excerpt from the original article, Neiman Marcus Christmas Book:

“Ever wish you could cross your arms, bat your eyes, and escape to a serene place all your own? Well, your wish is our command.

The structure consists of a mixed-grain interior lattice system, a Sunbrella exterior lining, and a plexiglass door and dome. The roof is made from vinyl-coated polyester with an acrylic top coat for extra durability.

But it’s the interior that goes beyond your wildest, most decadent dreams. Let’s start with the pieces de resistance: a bevy of one-of-a-kind, down-filled pillows from renowned designer Rebecca Vizard.

For the uninitiated, Vizard built a workshop in her rural hometown of St. Joseph, Louisiana, where she and a group of craftsman create these plush accessories—all by hand—from the finest textiles.

To give you an idea of the remarkable workmanship, artisans meticulously remove embroidery and trim from antique garments, tapestries, and scrollwork, dating as far back as the eighteenth century.
These exquisite “appliques” are then hand-embroidered onto velvet cases and accented by sequins, beading, and hand-bordered metallic galon and corded trim. In addition to the pillows, Vizard designed every detail of this space and selected colors to evoke the bubbles of a warm, soothing bath.”
