There’s nothing like the feeling of fresh cut grass under the toes, especially when stepping out of the shower. This Moss Carpet by Nguyen La Chanh [2] brings the outside indoors in an unconventionally natural way by placing it underfoot. The lush green lawn thrives in humid environments, which makes your bathroom a perfect place to grow.

Chanh’s ingenious design is made from a decay-free foam called plastazote, and populated with three varieties of moss [3]: ball, island, and forest. Maintenance required for this little patch of green [4] is limited, as the moss [5] thrives off of the humidity released from daily bathroom rituals. Who knew taking a shower could provide for such efficient multi-tasking, growing a little extra dose of green to start your morning or end your day.
