Tired of bringing out the “lawnchairs” for a party? Well get the real deal with the Grass Armchair. Coming in the shape of a chair, are 14 cardboard pieces that you fill with 240 litres of soil and 20cm of gravel at the base. Apply the grass seeds and just like a chia pet it grows in about 10 days. Protect it from rain while in its “incubating” phase, and soon enough you will have a fully functional chair that is a part of your lawn, and is sturdy enough to support a full grown adult.
Just trim the grass to the desired comfort level and your house can seriously increase its fun value, maybe even its actual value. At $115 a pop, they’re not that bad, especially compared to buying a patio set. But this one is weatherproof, windproof, drinkproof, drunken-idiot-throwing-chairs-into-your-pool proof.
