A selection of interior designers are taking turns decorating Cocoon9, a "plug and play" home located at Mecox Gardens in Southampton, as a summer-long showhouse. Cocoon9 models are 160- to 480-square-foot, energy-efficient homes usable as primary residences, pool houses, guest cottages or office spaces, with fold-away furniture options and 10-foot-high windows. Other features include a modern kitchenette, 360-degree swiveling TV, a see-through ethanol fireplace, app-controlled entertainment system, LED lighting and FSC-certified wood materials.

The Cocoon in Southampton launched with Greg McKenzie Design–provided design and furnishings supplied by Mecox Gardens. Stylist Sarah Storms is next on the roster; she will add a more modern feel to the space.
