Cardboard Carpets
Ravishing Recycled Rugs Made of Flattened Boxes by Wendy Plomp

By: Cecilia Biemann (Star) Apr 16, 09

The work of Dutch designer Wendy Plomp, these impressive cardboard carpets are made from flattened-out boxes, turning a throwaway object into a design delight.

Given that I am not a huge fan of vacuuming, I am certainly a huge fan of the recycled rugs concept. Cardboard is such a cheap material that it’s a viable and inexpensive option for creating disposable temporary floor coverings.

These rugs are perfect for those people who enjoy practicing the concept of “out with the old, in with the new” by updating their home decor regularly.

Bolder colors and more unique prints would make them even more appealing.
