Ouch! We're not sure how excited we'd be to walk across this stuff barefoot; but, with shoes, it was cool.
Our favorite part of Dwell on Design was probably the small outdoor showcase. From DWR's mini-Airstream to kitHaus' prefab, everything was charming and a lot of it was green.
We were intrigued by the glass and mirror pieces along the ground (don't worry, all the sharp edges seemed to have been sanded down). You wouldn't have to water, you wouldn't have to chip any wood. But if you have kids? Is it safe?
It's definitely an inventive bit of reusing/recycling as well as super-sustainable landscaping (if that's the right word).
Final conclusion: We think, for the right person/right home, this idea could be integrated beautifully into a yard or walkway.
