Green (Alternative) Seating: Mythic Yarns' Zafus

For us, living small has a lot to do with living green. So we don't mind the size of our apartment ... except when we have company over and there's no place for them to sit. And, since we don't exactly have room for armchairs, we're trying to think outside the box when it comes to seating. That's how we found Mythic Yarns' zafus.

Technically they're meant to be used for meditation, but we think they'd work nicely as a soft place for us to sit while guests occupy the couch. Plus, we like their funky, sort of bohemian look. And, we really like Mythic Yarns because all of their products are made from what they call "castaway" clothes -- recycled cotton and wool; even recycled zippers. Their meditation products are filled with either kapok fiber or buckwheat hulls -- both, according to their site, are naturally pest and germ resistant. At $78 a piece, the zafu we'd like for our place (from the Subway Collection) is a little pricey. We think we'll save up. Do you have a small space? Where do your guests sit?
