When it comes to green furniture, many consumers automatically think of wood. 

However, some designers are now exploring a material that looks like wood and is still environmentally sound: cardboard.

Yes, you can sit, sleep, dine and put your feet up on cardboard furniture. You can even place that 70-inch television screen on top of a cardboard TV unit.

Cardboard continues to grow in popularity as a material for domestic furniture and d├ęcor.

Even retailers are getting in on the trend, with beauty brand AESOP making waves with its cardboard-clad Flinders Street Store in Melbourne, which was
built in 2007.
