Welcome to the latest edition of Design Porn, Flavorpill’s regular roundup of drool-worthy objects. Ah, the fresh smell and sneezy feeling of spring. This particular season — by some accounts miserably cold, rainy, and/or windy — has also brought record-breaking pollen counts and a democratic feeling to what only a lucky few usually experience. Coupled with earth, the building material of the future, have we got a trend piece for you: grass houses! We’ve got seven to ogle after the jump; please leave tips in the comments if we’ve missed any others of note.
