The Tree Hotel, an awesome luxury nature retreat in Sweden’s Harads, just added a 7th room this winter and appropriately named it ‘The 7th Room‘. The room is located ten metres up in the pines. The way up is an experience in itself. Stairs and landings take visitors closer to the clouds, step by step. As you reach the large, lush, Lapland treetops, with a breath taking view of the Lule River, you have arrived at your destination. Large panoramic windows face north and along with skylights in the bedrooms, they will allow guests to watch the magnificent northern lights. The room has been designed with various ‘experience levels’. See more photos over here.

They are also canvases of contradiction: at once contemporary and timeless, flat and sculptural, compiled and uniform, static and unmistakably alive.
