Cardboard Furniture

Stu and I used to spend Sunday afternoons browsing the Kinokuniya bookstore in Rockefeller Plaza. We have acquired quite a library of inspiring books and magazines from there, all of which are in Japanese and we cannot read, but the photos are enough.

We came across this book in our collection about making furniture and fun play things for kids out of cardboard. Stu and I have made it our goal to make something fun out of cardboard for Holly’s birthday, which is coming up in May. I love the way the graphics on the boxes look mixed together, and have been saving patterned, colored and fun cardboard boxes that pass through our shop for this project. Although we can’t read the directions, there are step by step photos to follow, hopefully the end result is not wackyshack. Wish us luck.
