When I hear of cardboard furniture my mind immediately skips to a memory of my eldest son who insisted on sleeping in a fridge box for a whole week. Thankfully, cardboard furniture has evolved since then. There’s a whole new way of sitting, storing, even sleeping and you won’t believe the look – or the price of Karton furniture.
Completely recyclable and absolutely affordable, this could be the ultimate way to turn a playroom into a temporary bedroom for guests. The Paperpedic Bed ($188) morphs from a single size right up to a king easily and without any additional cost. This bed base can withstand a load capacity of close to a ton so you can safely stack the whole family on it to sleep if you’re inclined to do so, providing they’re not wrigglers.
There are storage options to boot – The Berlin Method (from $88) has four modules that can stand individually or work together to form a more complex storage solution. If I had more room I’d have the quirkiest storage – the Barnyard Method. Store books, bits and bobs in your very own cardboard sheep. It’s available in three sizes – ram, ewe and lamb, prices start at $12.
Karton furniture comes flat packed so there is some assembly required but the construction process couldn’t be simpler! You don’t need super strength or super smarts to put it together, nor do you have to battle with an Allen key or even glue – a few magical folds here, some well placed tabs there and like magic you have furniture. Each piece can be painted and decorated to suit your existing decor or it can be left in its natural cardboard coloured state.
