Invasive Weeds: Voilà, Sleek Daybed


This hand-crafted daybed sports curves—which make for a complete package, when you take in its eco-friendly design. Created by PIE (Project Import Export), the Tonecoon daybed is fabricated from woven water hyacinth. This plant is not just a rapidly-renewable species, it is classified as an "invasive weed" by the United States Department of Agriculture, and usually tackled with herbicides, mowing machines, and biocontrol insects. PIE has a whole line of TreeHugger-pleasing products—also composed of liana, rattan, and bamboo (check out the bamboo H chair). ::Project Import Export via ::Interior Design
