I kept an article from years ago about cardboard furniture--It sounded interesting to me too.
But I never did make any!

RE: cardboard furniture

When I was in college (many, many years ago) one of the art projects we did was making cardboard furniture. I made a table that I used as a nightstand for many years. I know I don't have a picture of it, but it was sturdy and withstood a lot of abuse. If I recall correctly, it was made with many layers of corrugated cardboard glued (laminated) together. It had an open front and a shelf, too.

I've seen pictures of chairs made with laminated corrugated cardboard that has been carved into a shape to fit a human (like an elongated 's' curve) that look really neat and are probably very comfortable.

As to getting started, just go for it. Draw out what you want to create and then try it. If it doesn't work, you haven't spent a whole lot of money and any successes or failures would just enhance your learning experience.

Good Luck!
Tina
