Paper Chase

Paper furniture? Yep. When used in multiple layers (just like that papier-mâché Gumby you made in junior high art class), paper has the strength to hold some serious weight. With a little help, that is: The buffet and stools shown here have metal skeletons, while the side table gets its durability from sheer heft; it weighs some 70 pounds. All are treated to be water-resistant.
