Cardboard furniture – 60 examples that you can make yourself

We have already presented on our website many ideas of pallet furniture that you can make yourself. However, there are still several materials that you can recycle and use to create your own unique furniture. The cardboard furniture for example have been a real trend in recent years and fascinate with their simplicity and design.

Originally reserved for artists and designers, today carton is widely used as a creative hobby. The manufacturing of this type of furniture is accessible and manageable. It is enough to have strong will and patience because it is a profession that can be learned.

In fact, there are three types of cardboard that you can use to complete your DIY cardboard furniture project. Today we are going to focus on the chipboard, honeycomb and corrugated cardboard. The latter is composed of several sheets of corrugated paper. Each of them is inserted between two sheets of flat paper. In fact, many of the things we buy for our homes come in cardboard boxes. From home appliances to tech gadgets. What’s more, businesses often receive their goods packaged in cartons. And be sure, they can get rid of it easily! However, be careful because the boxes must be in good condition for you to succeed in your project.

The table consists of four pieces – 2 triangular legs of 40 cm in length in which we must make notches and two symmetrical pieces that together constitute a 60 x 43 cm tray. These last are to slip in the notches.

To make the legs, you will need a cardboard measuring 68 x 40 cm. Make four folds as shown on the plan, then three notches, a tab closure and a slot that will help you form the triangular structure. The size of the tongue and the slot could vary between 10 and 15 cm. Both are to be located in the center of the vertical surface.
