Gallery: Build Your Own Shipping Pallet Furniture With Pallet Room’s Do...

 
Since pallets come in universal dimensions, pallet furniture is also universal and can be built by anyone, anywhere.

After moving into his new apartment, Andrea Scandella needed to furnish the place on a budget. Scandella is studying Design & Engineering at the Polytechnic of Milan, so it was a natural extension for him to design and build his own furniture for the apartment. He lived above a market with unused pallets outside of it, so he used these readily available items as a building material.

Since pallets come in universal dimensions, pallet furniture is also universal and can be built by anyone, anywhere. Scandella translated his designs into easy-to-follow IKEA-style instructions and created a website to offer them up for free to anyone. At Pallet Room you can download plans for a stool, a chair, a table, book shelves, and even a bed. Slats from pallets are universal building blocks, but it can be daunting to figure out what to do with them – and these instructions give you a good starting point for how to put them together.
