Are you forever asking people to bring a casserole plus a chair or two? Or do you have the proverbial stack of metal or plastic chairs in your basement? Guilty on both accounts.
FlexibleLove furniture, a honeycomb, accordion structure-type furniture, is not only eco-friendly, it will save your aching back from lugging those chairs up from the basement every time you have a party. The furniture is made of readily accessible recycled materials such as wood waste and paper and accommodates a variety of different configurations as well as seating for a number of people.
The product line consists of the Earth 8 and the Earth 16, which seats upwards of 8 and 16 people respectively. Simply tug at the end to create your own custom configuration. (See the demonstration video above.) Come on, Anna. cardboard furniture that can hold the body weight of many people? According to the Company, the Earth 16 can support weight up to 4233 pounds, whereas the Earth 8 can support weight up to 2116 pounds. The Earth 8 is priced at $390 and the Earth 16 is priced at $580.
