Paper is practical, readily available, versatile, and inexpensive. And as The Paper Home brilliantly demonstrates, it is also an easy-to-work-with material that can be fashioned in many ways to create beautiful objects for any living space. From card stock to cardboard, and using techniques from papier-mâché to origami, this avant-garde book shows paper crafters looking for a new twist–or any designer eager to experiment with a new medium–how to create unique home accents.

Beginning with a brief history of paper and how it functions as an interior design element, the book goes on to provide directions for 20 eclectic objects that are inspiring, beautiful, and chic. With simple, straightforward instructions, The Paper Home shows even those who have never worked with paper before how to create stunning objets d’art. Whether it’s a side table made from carved foam board or a clock made from corrugated cardboard, these three-dimensional projects will change the way crafters approach home decor.
