Contemporary Sibirjak Lounge Chair Made from Organic Birchbark
If we want to feel comfortable in our homes, we would want to take a sit on a comfy chair or maybe even on a day bed or in your own bed in the bedroom. But relaxing in the living room is also something that most of us do. That is why we would include a lounge chair with a foot stool so we can stretch our legs while raised up and just relax while reading a book, watching TV or just looking at the outdoor view.
Speaking of lounge chairs, we are going to show you a lounge chair that used a different organic material. The chair is called Sibirjak and is made room birch bark. It has a contemporary design that would fit in our modern homes today. The material used has amazing features since it is flexible, soft, water-repellent and antibacterial. Aside from that, a birch bark is also breathable, durable, and strong. Here is the Sibirjak lounge chair:
