072909-treechair0.jpgLast month we fell in love with the Pooktree Tree Shapers Living Furniture over on Apartment Therapy San Francisco. We've always loved the idea of a tree grown in the shape of a chair and wondered if it was something that we could do ourselves. The Growing Tree chair may be the answer we've been looking for...

Designed by Michele Bussien, it's essentially a clear plastic frame you place over a growing tree (here fast growing Willow trees and Russian vines) to train it into a chair shape. Remove the chair and the tree from the rolling planter once the tree has grown and replant it in the garden. We'd love a circle of these chairs planted in a grove of trees. Although this is primarily a concept, we wonder if Starck's iconic Louis Ghost chair could work in our own garden. We're certainly tempted to try. For more information click here
