For those who have everything

You can now grow your own grassy lawn chair

Terra ($393) is an armchair that takes the phrase "lawn furniture" literally. Designed by an Italian art collective, the lounger promises hours of grassy comfort if a buyer is willing to work for it. The creators sell only the chair's hidden cardboard substructure or, for those seeking a cheaper option, the plans for making it. The buyer must assemble the frame, fill it with dirt, add grass seed, and keep it watered for 10 days. About two months later, it'll be a lush emerald throne that requires only occasional trimming. Plans for a sofa and children's chairs are also available.
