Sure, at first a desk made from corrugated cardboard seems a little silly. But when you realize that a cardboard desk assembled with box shapes gives you the ability to build your own cable management system with nothing more than a utility knife, you might change your tune.

Made of 100 percent recycled cardboard, the Paperweight Desk is light and easy to assemble. But don't underestimate it's strength.

Great engineering has these white, glossy pieces of corrugated cardboard forming boxed-in shapes that can hold up to your desktop machine. Plus, it features a cable management system to wrangle all your wires between its boards. And guess what—if its built-in system doesn't work for you, you can grab a utility knife and hack your own holes.

At £151.00 ($225 USD, from Nigel's Eco Store), it's affordable as a desk, but probably more than we'd think to pay for a bunch of cardboard. Still, if you're looking for a good-looking, modern, strong desk that's still light and very portable (you nomad, you!), there's really no more perfect option!

But please, even if you think this desk is the greatest thing since Atari, don't go changing out every piece of furniture in your house with a cardboard version—it won't work so well in the kitchen.
