Gavin Munro Grows Furniture...

Gavin Munro is an innovative designer who grows trees into creative pieces of furniture.
Living and working on his farm north of Derby
in England, he grows willow, oak, ash and sycamore trees framed over forms so the saplings grow into chairs, light fittings, mirror frames and tables. There's more here.
Maybe money does grow on trees...


  1. Just like in Homer! In the Odyssey, Odysseus reveals that a post of his bed, which he built himself, is actually the trunk of a tree whose roots are still in the ground. He discloses this secret to his wife Penelope, in order to prove to her his identity after an absence of 20 years.

    I wonder if these furnishings are any easier to move than that?


  2. Oh cool! I'd not yet seen a finished product yet. What a smartie he is!

  3. My removals team told me that they saw this article a while back and I had to come by and read it for myself and I still don't believe that this is possible!
