The inspiration for the first play tent came from wanting one for my own children. They love to hide in and under things and a play tent seemed like so much fun. I strive to provide them with tools for imaginative and creative play. I searched for one in a fabric that suited my style and for a size and configuration that would work for my growing children while still fitting into my space. I didn't find what I was looking for, and having a little bit of sewing experience, I decided to make one. When friends and family saw it, they encouraged me to make more. I posted some pictures of ours, with some fabric choices. They were all spoken for within a few days and my business Domestic Objects was born. This was early 2014 and now my play tents are now shipped worldwide through etsy and this website and I have a rock star team helping me make our high quality products.
The design of the play tent has been refined over time and we continue to make improvements in the design and source new fabrics with the help of feedback from our customers.
