Featured Blogs: Web Ecoist
At first, this wasn't going to be a Featured Blogs post, but as I looked around Web Ecoist I decided it was worth featuring so that hopefully you would take a look at some of their other posts, too. But the post that inspired this post was...

One of the fun things I imagine about that CD chair is that it is really rolly. Maybe that would make it hard to sit on - because you would keep rolling off - but it looks kind of fun.
I remember in undergrad there was a classic first project in one of the "Intro to 3D Fundamentals" class where the students were asked to make a functional chair out of recycled cardboard. Though everyone always complained about that project, I thought it was amazing and was a little disappointed I never had that assignment. (Instead, I had to create a life-size self portrait using only cardboard and re-bar wire, which was pretty fun I will admit and I wish I had a picture of what I made)
Anyway, this blog Web Ecoist is pretty interesting, and I recommend checking them out. They have other quirky "eco" things to blog about, like living furniture:
