Wooden furniture has a beauty and mystique unlike any other, which inevitably stems from having once been a unique, living organism. But current production processes are both time consuming and wasteful: trees are grown for around 50 years, before being chopped and reassembled in often unstable ways. Offering an eco-friendly alternative, artist and designer Gavin Munro founded the Full Grown furniture farm in Derbyshire — where chairs, lamps and more are grown from willow, oak, ash and sycamore trees, and will be harvested whole in the coming years.
