Turn it up to 11,blow your own trumpet and march to the beat of your own drum – there are no second fiddles here!

We’re often told that Shambala ‘feels like home’. Which is lush – but come on, does it really? For one, home has more couches. More beds.

Let’s turn the fields of Shambala into a proper home – full of roaming,oversized furniture-human hybrids! Live your best lava lamp life! Turn into a telephone! Tick tock, become a grandfather clock! Summon your inner chandelier! BECOME ONE WITH YOUR DUVET!
