The Ponoko blog has a good roundup of incredible cardboard furniture, much of it from a collective of cardboard furniture makers in France known as Les Cartonnistes.
Repurposed boards have a natural aged beauty hard to ignore, particularly when various pieces of variegated color are set alongside one another.

Caution: pallet or reclaimed wood can be contaminated so please do wear breathing, hand and eye protection! The height of the legs will be determined upon the kind of padding you choose for your chair. I’m still debating on adding some extra detail under the armrests to fill in the big holes. Because I drag these pieces in each night, I wanted something just super easy to fold up and store again.
I’ll be celebrating Cinco de Mayo with some super nachos, a pitcher of margaritas and making this!! The National Trust’s historic Packwood House is home to three new upcycled art installations by artist Hilary Jack. The sprawling Tudor manor house in Lapworth, Warwickshire was built in 1925 on rolling hills and given to the National Trust in 1941, and became the scene of regular exhibitions and art installations. The third piece, Embedded, is an oversized four poster bed, evoking the canopy beds of the mansion.

Images: Katie Thompson of REcreate For those looking for a more eclectic decorating look beyond minimalist lines (or a little DIY inspiration) it's always gratifying to see 'junk' repurposed into unique pieces. Some of the work of Les Cartonnistes is quite extraordinary, one would never recognize it as cardboard.Ponoko also points us to an instructables, where Eric Guiomar teaches how you can build your own furniture. Two crafty designers featured on 360 See show how simple, rectilinear, modest and modern furniture forms truly shine when made out of recycled timber strips. In this case, pre-finished, high-end wood is used, but the effect is impacted more by the composition than choice of composite boards. I also wanted the option to use the pallet as a 2 sided bench, so leaving the backer off proved to be best choice for us.
Fred used a foam cutter, and glued chunks together creating the exact size cushion required. Acting like big pillow cases, oversized pillows (found at the thrift) were just slipped in and the tops folded over.
My huband and I just got a hold of 100 + pallets I can’t wait to see what he makes out of these!
Using found materials and discarded Tudor furniture, Packwood Follies turns garbage as a folkloric bed and cabin. In a tribute to the host house, Jack gathered salvaged faux Tudor furniture in all shapes, sizes and scraps to create the creepy cottage called InsideOutHouse. Using found wood gathered from the property, the pieces have been reassembled together to make miniature mansions, each holding a beehive for the pollinators on the grounds.
Jack carved the ornate bed frame from a coppiced Oak tree that was cut down to make room for new trees. And so-called 'junk market decorating' ideas abound with South African company REcreate, which offers up surprising selections like suitcase seats, milk bottle and typewriter lamps and other quirky accessories.


You want to be able to sit on your chair with your feet nearly flat on the floor if possible.
Just make sure your screws are long enough to clear the legs and give firm hold into the other side.
If your pallet was longer, you could always cut some support legs to set midway if desired. I’ve found most pallet wood to withstand weather pretty well unprotected though but it isn’t a bad idea!
The quirky cabin evokes historical fairy tales while transmitting a valuable message about resource conservation.
Ornate chair legs, table tops and disassembled bureaus of different finishes and quality have been joined together to make a patchwork facade.
The giant bed welcomes visitors to relax in the middle of the manor’s garden, offering a moment of relaxation with nature.
Using these scraps destined for the landfill, Jack has created a forest home that looks fitting for a hobbit, or a character from a Grimm fairy tale. Recycled trailer springs become spring flowers, horse shoes become scales of a fish and corrugated iron becomes a bike riding kangaroo. I have never taken myself too seriously so creating these pieces really suits my character.
