Here’s new concept in the world of annoying domestic blunders and booboos: a comfy, modern seat that has the potential to stain you. 

Denger Cengiz’s Chaise Lawn Chair — part chaise lounge, part wheelchair, part mobile planter — is made from wheelbarrow parts, wood and sod and looks, well, exactly as described. It’s fun, it’s festive and it’s for sale ($750 at Voos Furniture). It’s also sure to induce panic in mothers who spend entire summers in the laundry room battling it out with stubborn clothing stains. Think about the damage you can do to a pair of crisp white linen pants after a good lay in this piece of living furniture …

Stain-age aside, the Chaise Lawn Chair is sure to delight both lovers of quirky modern design and folks who enjoy sprawling out on a nice, soft bed of grass but don’t have the lawn to do it on. Purchasing such an odd piece of furniture is a commitment, especially in these tight-belted times, so if you want to give the Chaise Lawn Chair a spin it’s actually on display for a limited time at the Best Seats on Broadway exhibition in NYC’s Time Square. Go try ‘er out but be sure to take a stain stick just in case.

I'm loving the Chaise Lawn Chair — a chaise/lawn/wheelbarrow hybrid — but good lord, talk about a magnet for bad grass stains.
