The Karton Group is an Australian company attempting to bring cardboard furniture to the masses. Karton is an umbrella organization that works with designers all over the world to source its furniture. This gives it a wide library and helps to keep prices low. Karton curently offers everything from cardboard bed sets to desks and shelves.

Much like IKEA, the Karton Group keeps things simple when it comes to accessories. Furniture is flat-packed when shipped and does not require any tools or glue to be assembled. All you need is the ability to fold and a bit of patience. In addition to the green nature of its furniture, Karton also points out that each piece can be customized however you see fit as cardboard is an ideal canvas for enterprising artists.
