Seeking to combine both sleek design and environmental sustainability, designer Elliot Gorham has created a unique concept for outdoor living with this literal lawn chair. With ambitions to bring contemporary indoor elegance outside, Gorham has created a piece of outdoor furniture that allows for ultimate comfort while incorporating one of nature’s elements: grass.

Created to be both contemporary and practical, the seat area of the chair contains a bed of lawn, which allows for someone to casually sit or lay down for ultimate relaxation -- the idea is to make being outside much more comfortable.

The chair has also been created to allow for sustainability; essentially, it’s like a plant. Equipped with adequate drainage and soil depth, as well as waterproofing and methods of preservation, this lawn chair has been created to provide a contemporary outdoor living experience while incorporating part of the natural environment.
