Trending – Cardboard Lighting

Cardboard makes for really sturdy, recyclable, cheap packaging.

You know what else it makes? Great lighting!

So what do you think of this trend? I personally love the warm glow the cardboard gives to the light, and especially enjoy when the corrugation is used in a fluting effect.  Such an elegant look from such a common material.
