Cork is making a comeback. Not wine bottle corks (they’ve not gone away), but cork as a material used in homes and interior design.
For a while, it was very old hat and shunned by some. Of course, the good old classic cork boards, cork tablemats and coasters are still available, but now furniture, home accessories and even fabrics made from cork are increasingly in popularity.
Here’s a selection of five homeware products made from cork that would look right at home in a contemporary house.
Would you believe this Mar cushion is made from cork? It sure is! The cushion, with its mix of blue hues, is both a durable and eco-friendly piece. It’s created by Mind the Cork, but can be purchased via Bouf.
These fab champagne cork design bar stools are made from natural cork and ridged steel. This is the first production run of this design and there are only limited items available, currently with a discount offer. They’re from Impulse Purchase.
This pink ceramic vase by Bloomingville is made that little bit more unusual with its cork neck. It’s a lovely subtle shade of dusky pink and contemporary in style. It’s available from Posh Totty Designs Interiors.0
