Tina Spies: Cork Furniture


Last winter, Mike introduced us to the cork flooring trend, but that’s not the only way this sustainable resource is making a splash in the world of design. This fall, the stunning natural texture of this renewable material is popping up in furniture collections across the web.

The organic contours of the Cortica Chaise lounge and the supple nature of the cork it’s crafted from make for ultimate comfort and style. (Shown above; available at Branch Home for $4988.)


The team at Iannone Design utilizes an array of cork hues to create a stunning depiction of the wild. The decorative doors of their Cork Mosaic sideboard hides clutter while adding an artistic accent to your living space. (Available at Vivavi for $3400.)

As the wine industry begins sealing their bottles with plastic stoppers, Jasper Morrison refuses to let the resulting surplus of the green material they abandoned go to waste with his creation of the Cork stool. (Available at Design Within Reach for $385.)
