Living Moss Carpet Adds a Touch of Green to Your Bathroom

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  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 : ball, island, and forest. Maintenance required for this little patch of green  is limited, as the moss  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.
