Airstream Redux

I've been a fan of Airstreams for very long time, ever since I fell in love with Juliette Lewis' Airstream-caravaning character in What's Eating Gilbert Grape. I've also had an on-again-off-again, love/hate relationship with Dwell magazine. But they recently did a story for the rest of us on a fantastic Airstream redux.

This restoration by Andreas Stavropoulos turns this classic 1959 Airstream into a modern, streamlined sanctuary. I love the simplicity and functional use of space throughout the interior. If Dwell will please continue to showcase cool, attainable dwellings, I may actually consider reinstating my subscription (rather than paying way more for the random individual issues that I do now).

Hopefully someone can just marry this concept with the MINI Cooper S Clubman Airstream Design Study, then I'd be good to go.

I'm also a fan of the giant, stuffed octopus... you'll discover why very soon!
