Cardboard Furniture Isn't A Joke, And It Might Make Moving Less Horrific (PHOTOS)

Cardboard furniture sounds like a disparaging term for the kind of stuff you buy for your first apartment, but it's something that actually exists -- not to mention something you'd actually like to have in your home (provided you don't spill too much). Karton Group, an aptly-named Australian design company, created the line as an affordable, easy-to-move alternative to traditional furnishings. While the idea could be a hard sell to some, it could be a great solution to those who have a tendency to move every year.

What do you think? Check out the photos below for a few highlights from the line, then visit Karton's website for more info.
