Can cardboard furniture replace traditional flat-packed furniture? We don’t know. Do I want to add this Rocking Never Stopping Couch to my living room ensemble? I definitely do.

A sleek-looking cardboard sofa, it doesn’t just offer extra seating in the living room for two, it will gently rock that couple back and forth in relaxing motion, too. The looks aren’t show-stopping, but it is very presentable. Plus, you can always wrap it up with a sofa cover to fit in better with the rest of the space.

Made by Lithuania-based Life is Short, the Rocking Never Stopping Couch can support weights of up to 330 pounds, which should translate to two average people, three petite individuals, or one super-heavyweight. And, yes, it does that while barely weighing under 20 pounds, ensuring you can carry it with one hand, whether you want to move it around the room, bring it up the stairs, or carry it to the neighbors for extra seating during a viewing party. Like other cardboard furniture, it ships flat-packed and requires some assembly before use. Fortunately, assembly takes just two minutes, making it easy to put together and break apart when moving into a different living space.

Do note, the rocking motion does put extra strain on the corrugated cardboard material, so furniture like this has a definite lifespan. According to the creators, they estimate around two years of good use before things start showing wear, although you might able to extend that if you use the piece with a little more care.

Available now, the Rocking Never Stopping Couch is priced at $135.

    Heck yeah. Get one of these for the kids and throw them some crayons and let them draw all over it. You know what this would be good for? Getting everyone at the class or family reunion to sign. Then you could call this a signature piece of furniture. 😀

    This is kind of cute, does it come in glossy white? – also, those two people sitting on the couch look like they would weigh more than 330 pounds combined, plus, with them sitting right in the center of the piece, it seems like it would bust right through. They are definitely being c-a-r-e-f-u-l.

    That’s funny I was just looking at the cardboard technology products on this site the other day. I think this is amazing, but am especially curious as to how much this couch actually weighs as far as feel goes–I know it says 20lbs but that’s just unbelievable! Judging from the pictures, it looks fairly easy to lift, carry around, move, and manipulate. Can you take it apart and put it back together for convenience when moving or relocating? What type of materials or cardboard are they using here exactly? I just can’t wrap my head around it. What’s next?! For the price this is awesome, especially because furniture–let alone good, sturdy, attractive looking furniture is so hard to come by and seemingly always so expensive! How does this hold up against stains and damage like impact, or cat scratches, droppage of items on it, etc.?

    this is pretty cool looking, but it doesn’t look really well built. for the price, i don’t feel it’s practical since we really have no way of telling how well these things hold up in the long-run, and for triple the price if not less you could just get yourself a nice leather couch of the sorts, or a really nice used or refurbished one for around the same price. good ol economy!

    thats pretty crazy that this thing is also a ‘rocking chair’! sounds a little dangerous, but looks like loads of fun. can or will they be making outdoor furniture like this too in the near future? since it’s made of corrugated cardboard its more likely that it will last longer as this is especially tough, and firm material. the coloring is OK, and i definitely would want to paint it or see if you could customize other colors or designs–and if not just throw a blanket on top of it or something! definitely impressive that this this is designed to handle up to 330lbs, that sounds a lot about both the materials and the maker. the kids would have a blast with one of these for sure!
