I found many things to love in the new online magazine, Paper Runway, but here’s my impression of me looking at the cardboard furniture on Karton’s website: “What? Shut up! SHUT. UP. No way! That’s amazing.” I went on like that for probably twenty minutes straight. And that’s before I even saw the “Watch It Fold” videos that demo the simple setup for each item. (No hardware required!)

Karton bedroom furniture

Karton’s an Australian company, but luckily they sell their products online, so “there’s no middle-man,” as they say. These 100% recyclable wonders — everything from stools to storage units — seem sturdy, and would be adorable with a coat of paint. While I’m not ready to trade in my traditional bed for the Paperpedic model shown here, I think The Chairman’s Table would be perfect for a kid’s coloring station, and I could actually see myself getting on (card)board with some of the shelving.

  2. Super, Crazy, Cool. Imagine how nice moving day will be when your furniture weighs LESS than your "boxed" up decor items and personal effect. Crazy concept. Perhaps your "furniture" is also your moving boxes. Now we're on to something. ;)
