While the pipes alone can't form the entire piece, they are used to make the basic frame. Here's more information about PVC pipes being used to make furnishings.
The Basics
Before you start browsing through various ideas, it is essential to know more about the material. There is a variety of pipes available, but the thin ones with a diameter of an inch are commonly used. Moreover, these pipes are rated as 'furniture quality' and have greater strength and stability. This makes them ideal as frames for beds and relaxing chairs.
The fittings are the most important elements when making the entire structure. Straight and curved two-way pipes, including elbow, three-way elbow, and four-way fittings make up an entire piece of furniture. The diameter of the pipe must be considered while buying these fittings.
While the pipes are basically available in white, you can ask the manufacturer for colored pieces, as well. Other colors that are available include gray, green, and black, with even transparent styles in the market. You can opt for a white piece and later choose to get them painted according to your choice.

Remember that PVC makes a great base, as it does not chip or peel like metal frames. Moreover, you can use materials like leather, cotton, or plastic to form the main portion of the piece once its frame is ready.
