    Yes, and looks comfy to me.

    Yes, maybe. What keeps the twigs anchored other than gravity?

    Firmly in the maybe camp and I probably won't change my mind very much.

    Don't actually like the look of the joinery on that one, those bottom joints look like a weak point. The arm rails are to narrow to be comfortable as well.

    Agree with Darren and think the twigs could be moderately to extremely comfortable depending on the pre-sitting condition of the carrier of the posterior. Agree with Ted that positional stability if positively concerning but definitely solvable regardless.

    Cool

    Definite yes. If I were the first at the party, I'd sit in it before anyone else could.

    Interesting. Looks comfortable but like Ryan said I don't think it's really made well.

    Agree with Ryan. Looks nice, but have doubts about its "structural integrity".

    another one to try it out but the joinery and the loose twigs need to be addressed but if the twigs were stationary then maybe the comfort goes away? kinda like a bean bag chair..

    I'm wondering about the joinery too, but if it fails, you have a lifetime supply of kindling.
