Do-it-yourself designs

DIY retailer KARWEI presents its new do-it-yourself designs: a one-off basic design collection of ten designs in total, including a table, a sofa and a bookcase. “Each item from the series has been designed to be made from a single sheet of underlayment. Not a single scrap of wood is wasted. The designs are simple to make yourself. DDW visitors get a free working drawing and instructions, and can set to work immediately.” – Matthijs van Ewijk, Brand Manager at KARWEI.
