Karton – thinking outside the cardboard box

This last week has been a bit frantic as we have moved offices. I don’t enjoy the actual moving process but I do love being in a new place and thinking of all the possibilities to create a space that I am excited to work in.


I am a big believer that you should live in a space first to get a real feel for it and to find out how best to make it work for you. What seems like a fantastic idea in the day dreaming stage of the design, can become a costly mistake once you start making your mark if you rush the process.


So the dilemma that I was faced with was how to make a fully functioning office that can be temporary in design. This would allow me to actually experience the space before I source the furniture that will be the right long term solution. I also wanted to make a point of being as green as possible in this transitional phase.


The solution is simple… cardboard!


Well more precisely Karton Cardboard Furniture. This brilliant Melbourne based online store has everything from beds, tables and storage solutions all made out of cardboard.

I love that it is 100% recyclable and can be painted or left natural – whatever takes my fancy!

And just for giggles they have also created a Ram that doubles as storage for books, magazines, CD’s etc – I have always wanted a pet in the office!

If only I can think of a creative solution to all our cardboard packing boxes, this office will be an inspirational space in no time.
