The grass armchair


If you’re looking for something quirky and green, they don’t come much quirkier or indeed greener than this fantastic cardboard armchair from Purves & Purves, spotted by the folks over at Hippyshopper.

Assemble the frame somewhere you always wanted to sit, weight it, add soil in the remainder and sprinkle the enclosed seeds. Within days, you’ll have your very own grass armchair, ideal for all those lazy summer afternoons (all two of ’em).
