Chairs. We’ve all got them but they're hardly something that you tend to get really bloody excited about because, well… they’re chairs and while a necessary part of everyday life, chairs can be a little bit boring.

Take the one you’re sat in right now. If it’s anything like ours it’s probably got those annoying wheels that spin in the wrong directions and a cushion made out of weird coarse devil material. It gets you through the day but you don’t love it.

Which is why you need a chair like these eco-friendly, design focused four legged friend from UK company Full Grown, who create create unique furniture juxtapositions of nature and expert craftmanship, making furniture that's quite literally grown in a pot.

And they also do other furniture...

The process involves nurturing trees from their humble beginnings as a seedling, training them to grow around a specially created frame until they’re harvested, smoothed, varnished until they end up looking like the kind of magic furniture Frodo Baggins would pack into his house.

It’s a slightly more long winded affair than the usual process of cutting, screwing and sawing that goes into furniture making but it’s also a lot more environmentally friendly, cutting back on waste and deforestation and the final results are stunning.
