Cardboard furniture

Share your best tips

The past month I’ve slept on friends’ couches. I’m moving a wall in my apartment. To be honest, if I would have known how long it would take, how the first constructor worker decided to disappear, and if I would have known how much time and work just tearing down a wall would be, I probably would not have embarked on this journey.

But I did, and now it’s almost finished–and my living room is now spacier than before! The dimensions really change the whole room, and I need to rethink some of the furniture. Since before, I’ve decided to decorate only with vintage or sustainable furniture. Right now I’m obsessed with a Spanish brand offering cardboard furniture.

All their products are renewable made entirely out of cardboard. The pieces are packed flat for shipping and are water-resistant. They are also recyclable–which means no mess with the landfill.

This post is presented by Serla and their concept #smågrönasteg where they encourage you to share your best tips on making everyday greener with the hashtag #smågrönasteg. Read our first post here

Thanks for sharing!
