How-To: Create a Moss Chair

Last week, I introduced you to talented designer Kyle Schuneman, who's known for his innovative small space design. Kyle recently created this cool moss chair. Luckily for all of us, he also sent along directions on how CasaSugar readers can get the look of this awesomely garden-inspired seating option.


To see how to make this chair for your own home, patio, or garden,

.

  • Find a side chair that has a nice solid seat - something with a great shape and with a vintage flair will really take this chair to the next level. You will need to wet newspaper strips as well. Once you clean the chair cover it in moist newspaper strips.
  • Once the chair is covered in newspaper you will then put a little spray adhesive down and a thin layer of chicken wire so that the moss has something to grab on to.
  • Section by section, spray a bit of adhesive on the back of each piece of moss and push it onto the damp newspaper/wire. The bigger the piece the moss the better, so it doesn't look pieced together. Instead, it will feel like it has grown from the earth.
  • Once the entire chair is covered in moss, make sure to water it regularly in order to keep it healthy and growing. You can use a spray bottle or a hose with a spray attachment in order to keep it damp. The newspaper acts as something for the water to soak in, keeping the moss healthy. Use this moss chair as a great sculptural piece in a sunroom, a plant stand outside, or even a functional chair that is also a conversation piece.

I think this is a great idea for a living sculptural piece but not as a chair for sitting. Moss is not like grass, its soggy. But I still would love to try this out.

This is so cool. My parents are allowing me to redo our terrible patio so I'd keep this project in mind What happens to it in the wintertime when temperatures are below freezing?

Great to see and appreciate the tips on how to do this. I saw this done before in a British Elle Magazine, but lost the copy. The picture showed this grassy club chair growing right into the ground. Tricky maintenance, but worth the effort.

I can just imagine the giant green stains on the unfortunate person's bottom after they've sat in that chair. I just couldn't do that to a person. Inventive, yes. Functional, probably not.
