FRUITful Designs (2): FRUITniture

The healthiest part of my day is my breakfast. My husband and I make sure we share a plate of assorted cut fruit to have a healthy start to our day. So, I thought why not make a whole week’s post on fruit. I figured there must be lots of fruit-inspired creations out there. This week I share with you my discoveries in a special feature called “FRUITful Designs”.

Today I bring you “FRUITniture”:fruit-inspired furniture.

Our hectic schedule and long working hours has nearly grabbed more than half of our daily schedule, and life at the cost of our health. We tend to skip our breakfast, lunch and at times dinner as well, thus ruining your health. Our more of dependencies on the fast food adds to the agony. It’s not too late yet to switch on to a healthy diet chart. And this Fruitniture is there to help you. Designed by Barry Lai, Fruitniture is a chair that will remind you take healthy fruits from time to time. The arm of the chair holds the fruits on both the sides of the chair, so that you take good care of your health. Healthy chair indeed.

“Dorset Fruit Table” 
by John Makepeace

Makepeace’s Dorset Fruits Table in English lime, the best possible wood for carving, says the artist. The pigment of the fruits is worked into the surface of the lime so that the grain is still visible, and the table features fruits grown in Makepeace’s garden in Dorset, UK, such as apples, plums, pears, quince, cherries, white, red and black currants, strawberries, gooseberries, loganberries, boysenberries, and blackberries.
