Build your own cardboard furniture

How perfect for a child's room is furniture made of cardboard? It's sort of durable, the materials are cheap, and you can mold it to any shape you please. Love the rounded corners! If a toddler ran headlong into this, she'd more likely dent the furniture than her own face.

If you want to learn how to build it yourself, you can buy a "How Things Are Made" film featuring Eric Guiomar and a group of Parisian crafters called the Cartonnistes. Or check out the free Instructable written by someone using the same techniques.
