Corkers

No longer reserved for homes from the eighties, cork is enjoying a fashionable resurgence in furniture and homewares.

This week we will take a look at how designers today are using this medium to create beautiful, modern designs that celebrate the raw texture and pattern of cork in a whole new light. The other bonus is that this is a sustainable material that has many amazing qualities such as being fire retardant, extremely pliable as well as buoyant and cushiony.

Prepare to fall in love with cork all over again!
