Farmhouse sexy cardboard furniture

Flutetablethumb

Okay, so the Fun Chair didn't totally do it for me, but the Farm Designs cardboard furniture by Giles Miller really does.  Instead of just having a smooth surface, he has a 'flocked' design, where he manipulates the angles of the corrugation to give the cardboard exciting and gorgeous textures.  It obviously also lends itself to room dividers, but even more surprisingly, apparently he's made rocking chairs and laptop cases (from carpet and cardboard) as well.  It's fantastic to see innovative uses of cardboard to dispel the idea that you'd do just as well to cut up an old fridge box - an old fridge box wouldn't have such texture.  [GT]
