One of my favorite bloggers, Grace Bonney of design*sponge, was recently featured in domino magazine. Her site was where I first learned about the current cork trend. I always knew that cork was great for flooring and wall coverings, but cork furniture and accessories are amazing (and a bit more accessible).
So I did a little more research and found this great video with furniture designer Daniel Michalik. Take notes because he rattles off the benefits of cork furniture pretty fast. He says it is “not sleek, not sexy,” but that’s what he likes about it. I say it’s got an almost Danish Modern appeal to it and is VERY eco-chic.
