Terra Grass armchair

This ingenious DIY armchair kit is basically a cardboard frame that you fill with soil and plant with grass. The living chair blends into any lawn or garden, turning your yard into a cozy green environment akin to the Shire. Plus, you could easily alter the chair design to suit your own style. With the Terra Grass armchair, you get all the joy of sitting in grass without any of the discomfort of the flat, bumpy ground underneath.
