Flat-pack furniture has been a growing trend recently because it’s affordable, lightweight (think lower shipping costs!) and easy to transport. Most flat-pack, hardware free home items are also environmentally friendly, made out of cardboard, recycled wood or other recycled and recyclable materials. Last month we featured the ease and eco-friendliness of SmartDeco furniture and if that left you craving more, you’ll love this: our roundup of 7 unique and inspired flat-pack, hardware-free furniture alternatives to IKEA.
