Where can I find free blueprints / instructions / patterns on how to build cardboard furniture?

I need furniture for my apartment; however, I am only in this particular county for 2 years, and then I will travel somewhere else where my furniture cannot follow me. Therefore, I think this would be a perfect time to experiment with cardboard furniture.

However, my Google searches have only lead to pages describing such furniture, or pictures sets of the finished project. Where can I find more detailed instructions online? I am mainly looking for coffee tables, couches / benches, chairs, bedside tables, ect.

This previous question suggests ideas, but with few concrete instructions.

You might like the books Nomadic Furniture and Nomadic Furniture 2. For free, you'll have to inquire at the library, although you can find a few scanned pages online.

Nthing Nomadic. I came across my copy (bought in the 70s) last year sometime. Pure bliss for what you're trying to do--although I think plywood was the preferred material in these books.

This sounds like a job for instructables. A quick searching there shows some appropriate projects, as well as what looks like a link to a video about making cardboard furniture
