A few years ago, these cardboard deer head mounts were seemingly everywhere. The company that makes them, Virginia-based Cardboard Safari, is still going strong. They offer many different wall-mounted species, from elephant to dragon, in cardboard that's natural brown, white, or the occasional print. Most of these are also available in wood.
I am a believer in the awesome power of cardboard, so it's not surprising to find the company now offers actual furniture. Namely, this rocket-inspired table.
I dig their retro aesthetic, which is shown most richly in its iPad stand. Resembling a space-age TV set, the case has the added advantage of giving a subtle, "hands off, we're watching something" while it is in use.
These sets make great gifts for tweens and teens, who (as you may know) can be particularly tricky to shop for. Do I need to even mention that once your cardboard item has run its course and has become no longer wanted, it can be recycled? They have many more items to see, so go browse around!
