Liddy Scheffknecht and Armin B. Wagner Channel Childhood Imagination

I know exactly what has been missing in my life all this time: pop-up cardboard furniture. I mean, really, how has this not been in my life? As kids, our imaginations soared with simple cardboard boxes, so just imagine what our adult minds can conjure up if we owned this.

Although, I have to admit I’m with Naresh Chauhan on this one, does this contraption really hold up? The pop-up cardboard furniture may offer "portability and sustainability," but does it also offer anti-crushability, water proof technology and is it fireproof?

Ok, these are definitely not questions that a child would care about—and they certainly would kill any stroke of imaginative genius, but I’m just curious. Even if it isn’t, kudos to Liddy Scheffknecht and Armin B. Wagner for crossing the barriers between childhood and adulthood. I think everyone needs pop-up cardboard furniture in their lives.
