It's a Corker!
Like all things 70s, cork is making a comeback. It's no wonder, too - from its great texture to its earthy tones, cork has so many qualities that touch on what's hot right now. Not only is cork a lightweight and versatile material, it's also highly sustainable.
Cork is harvested from the Cork Oak Tree, which does not require being, cut down. Every 7 to ten years the bark can be harmlessly extracted from the trees that live from 150 to 250 years. That's as good a reason as any to pop the champagne corks and celebrate this emerging trend!
Designers are recognising cork’s versatility and are combining it beautifully with glass, metal, ceramics and timber.
We have found a few examples to enhance your home with this environmentally friendly material:
