We’re living in a culture that’s not only obsessed with the obscure, but that also loves to change its mind, which is a contributing factor in the rise of cardboard home decor that boasts functionality and the ability to change without guilt. While deforestation continues on a global level, the attention being drawn to ways to have style in a more sustainable way is creating an influx of cardboard home decor designs.

Cardboard may not be without its own problems; at one point, it, too, was a tree, but the defining factor here is the reuse of manufactured cardboard that’s taking place. Instead of allowing it to go through the recycling process, many of these cardboard home decor designs are made using post-consumer pieces to help decrease dependency on formalized recycling initiatives.
