Home Design: Outdoor living rooms?

Made out of all natural materials, mostly straw and grass, these sofas have been placed in town centers across the countryside, in hopes of getting Brits out of the house. These "open-air sitting rooms" are designed to encourage families to get outdoors together this summer.

From Britian's National Trust: "Summer is well and truly here but according to new research out today the sunshine is still not enough to entice the nation outdoors, with the average family spending up to 43 hours a week sat on their sofa, even during the summer months."
