My version of the "Lawn Chair"


The framework for the seat cushion, I used one on the seat, and a second for the backrest.

I have wanted create a lawn chair , ever since I came acros some on-line.






I wanted plenty of soil so the sod would thrive; I also wanted the look of a cushion.



I fabricated a cushion by making a wire frame, then covering it with landscape fabric.
First step, making the wire frame to hold the soil.
Thrift chair, wire, roll of sod, the makings of my lawn chair.

I love this!! I love how this is a contempory vesion of the Midieval "turf seat". At Queen Eleanor's garden in Winchester, turf seats are re-constucted to the original plan. Vita Sackville West discussed turf seats in her writings. I love how you have taken a witty modern rift on this.
you are so interesting and creative. I am telling my friends about your site.
Best,
Philip
