The concept of using hay as seating has been around for a long time now, but designer Fabrio del Percio has taken it and revolutionized the idea for indoor seating. The chair is made from Icelandic hay and transparent PVC vinyl with a zipper. The line of seating is called 'Hey' with the aforementioned chair called the Transparent Chair. The idea of the covering is that it will keep the hay fresh because it needs to air out once in a while so it doesn't rot.

The hay-filled chairs are perfect for any eco-friendly lover or nature admirer, and having this eco-friendly seat can give you bragging rights with your friends. You an enjoy all the benefits of hay-seating without all the mess and smells because of the innovative clear covering. The chair weighs 18 kg, but keep in mind it does come with a steep price tag; sometimes splurging is worth it, though.
