Cardboard Furniture Offers Easy Assembly For Sleep, Work And Lounge
Practical, sturdy and stylish cardboard furniture from Australia's Karton gets a showroom in Brooklyn
Australian furniture maker Karton recently opened a showroom in Brooklyn for its cardboard furniture line. Karton cardboard furniture is just as dependable as any kind of wood or pre-fab pieces, with the added bonus of being made from recycled materials and without toxins or additives.
If you’re thinking these pieces harken back to your makeshift dorm room furniture, think again. The Karton line boasts a sophisticated aesthetic at a fraction of the price of brand new furniture. They also have an office furniture line and bundles so you can outfit entire rooms with tables, shelves, drawers and frames.
In addition to being a sustainable choice, Karton furniture is built to last ten years and multiple moves. The bed frame alone can absorb two tons of weight. The furniture is also easy to assemble and there is no need for tools. Folds and tabs are systematically employed to create the structure for the piece.
While it may be hard for some to mentally reframe cardboard into a permanent and stable application of furniture, Karton is a solution for those who value environmentally friendly options for their living space, and a cost effective way to outfit a home or apartment with pieces that offer a blank slate for interior creativity.
