Chia furniture... Love It or Leave It?

If ever there was a greener conversation piece, or one with more bugs...


I love the concept -- just fill the sofa or chair frame with soil, spread grass seed, and water. Within a week or two you have your own chia-furniture. I love sitting in the grass under a big tree reading a good book -- and this furniture may be equally comfy. But then, after about 20 minutes or so, the bugs come. Creepy crawlers dead set on breaking your bliss.

And what about all the additional trimming, weed wacking, and grooming that will ensue? How long before the wood begins to biodegrade? What do you say to a guest with a very inconveniently placed insect bite?

Are these pieces just meant to be decorative? Form without much function, if you ask me. So, Love It or Leave It?
