Terra Chairs: Growing Your Own Outdoor Seating

August 9, 2016


This is the Kickstarter for Terra Growing Furniture. Each Terra chair kit includes a lattice cardboard frame you fill with rocks and dirt, then plant grass on top, which will eventually grow into a comfy outdoor chair. One you'll have to trim with a weedwacker or garden shears because I don't think a lawnmower is gonna cut it. Cut it -- get it? LOLOL beat me with a sockful of marbles. Unfortunately, the recycled cardboard frame for the cheapest one-seater (they also sell two-seaters and sofas) costs $220, leading at least one blogger to speculate just what the hell kind of diamonds that cardboard is made out of.

Keep going for a shot of $220 worth of cardboard and their Kickstarter video in case you want to modify their idea and start selling $12 versions.


Thanks to hairless, who may or may not dream of being a Chia Pet.

    Cool idea, I try to make my own for 5 euro.

    Hey we cut cardboard and now want to sell it to morons for 200+ dollars, LOL

    $220 is a disgraceful ask for a bit of cardboard. I hope the greedy bastards fail at this and every other endeavor they try.

    ETA: Fuck! You even have to cut out the cardboard yourself! $220 for a few sheets of uncut cardboard! The greedy hipster bastards with their philosophy bollocks can shove it up their arses.

    how do you mow the grass growing on it? and what if it rains, wouldn't it puddle?

    I feel like this is a repost.

    Now that I've seen the picture of the cardboard I'm confident I can make my own with boxes from my place of work. Then all I need is a house with a garden. Actually maybe this will be expensive...

    $220US for a DIY product... WHAT?

    Fill it with dirt & doughnuts and you'll have a giant ant hill. :D
