5.5 Designers recently unveiled a beautiful line of clean and modern furniture that acts as a blank canvas for growing a variety of potted plants! A bench of boxwood trees? A table topped with thuyas? The different types of living furniture you can create in your own backyard are only limited by your imagination.
Dubbed Mobilier à Jardiner, or “Furniture to Garden”, the pieces are an interesting way to display your plants instead of merely placing them in pots (boring!). Plus, the greenery you plant actually becomes a part of the furniture , serving as a backrest, armrest or tabletop. And if you ever grow bored of a particular configuration, you can always switch out the flowers, grass, and trees.
It’s important to point out that although the furniture itself is made of concrete , which isn’t the most sustainable material, it is durable and meant to last for a long time, hopefully becoming a fixture that is not easily discarded.
