Grow your own grass furniture


Saw this on Inhabitat. Very cool. Very strange. Very cool.

  1. Looks comfortable,I wonder about the maintenance though.Seems you might have to cut the grass with a hand shears.

  2. I think it might be fun to try other plants besides grass. You could use thyme, creeping fig, etc.

    The form definitely sparks ideas for different designs you could make yourself. Doesn't necessarily have to be a chair. How about a pot or urn? A turtle? A flower? A square?

  3. Angela,

    I love the idea of a pot or urn -- it would be cool to "grow" the pot and then plant something in it. I agree that it looks like cutting the grass with shears would be the only way to go, but as long as it's of reasonable size, that shouldn't be that big a deal. Definitely interesting possibilities.

    Thanks for posting the "lawn chair". Chip Sullivan's "Garden and Climate" talks a bit about this ancient Greek and Roman practice for creating cool seating and they were covered with a variety of fragrant ground covers - they are even cooler if you dig them into the earth - but I don't think they would be as charming. The idea of a "pot" is a wonderful one.

  6. I love the idea of this chair, though I agree, it would be easier to maintain if it were planted with thyme or some other creeping plant.
