Birch is one of our favorite trees, famous for their pale and lovely bark. Designer Anastasiya Koshcheeva has created a gorgeous and modern  lounge chair and ottoman made from birchbark called ‘Sibirjak’. In it, she has proven that the material can be strong and flexible, tactile and beautiful, yet delicate all at the same time. Via DesignBoom:
