Being from Brooklyn, we’re all about a good old-fashioned escape to nature. Sometimes, you just want to get out there and get your hands dirty, sleep in a tent, forego all modern luxuries, and get back to nature. But there are also those times that you want to get out of civilization and and just relax, not have to worry about pitching a tent, cooking yourself hotdogs over a fire (let’s face it, those are never that great), or worry about where/when you might be able to take a shower. That’s where “glamping” comes in, AKA glamorous camping. You get all the perks of camping in nature without any of the inconveniences that go with it… sign us up!
Our newest west elm Contract partner, Under Canvas knows exactly how to take a normal camping trip and turn it in to a luxurious getaway experience, in prime national parks and forests like The Grand Canyon, Moab, Zion National Park, Glacier Nat’l Park, Great Smoky Mountains, and more! Even better, Under Canvas gives back to preservation organizations and charities to bring the outdoors to children, youth and disadvantaged individuals, so you’ll have even more to feel good about. We teamed up with Under Canvas to bring west elm outdoors and elevate your glamping experience with our beautiful nature-inspired assortment. Our first stop: The Grand Canyon.

“Under Canvas began in 2009 with the opening of an all-inclusive glamping adventure package and has since grown to include seven luxury glamping resorts near America’s most beautiful national parks.

Happy, well-rested glampers will wake to sounds of nature just steps away from America’s most beautiful national parks.”
