Grow your own garden furniture

TV gardening programmes are all about turning your garden into an outdoor room. But what if the actual landscape could become furniture?

TERRA! has dreamt up such a thing and is now crowdfunding on Kickstarter. By planting a TERRA! cardboard frame in your lawn, you can create an armchair that grows into and becomes part of the environment – while remaining a comfy seat.

The frames are specially designed and made from laser-cut recycled cardboard, and supplied with instructions to help you grow your garden furniture. They look kind of like an oversized supermarket wine carrier, but when covered in sand and grass seeds they can become something the Teletubbies would be proud of.

If you're really into the DIY vibe the lowest pledge (€18, around £15.50) gets you a paper pattern from which you can cut your own cardboard pieces.

Here's a video with more information.
