Cork: The Natural Choice For Interiors
“Harvested from the bark of mature trees in southwest Europe and northwest Africa, cork is a sustainable, renewable and eco-friendly material that is extremely versatile. It’s lightweight, water resistant and fire resistant too. Not to mention the fact that it looks fantastic!”
Stacey Sheppard, Design Blogger, thedesignsheppard.com
Designers have been developing fantastic new applications for cork in the past few years. From furniture and accessories to unusual lighting, an increasing emphasis on sustainability in design has made cork a popular choice. It’s so popular that Ikea have collaborated with British designer Ilse Crawford to create the SINNERLIG collection. The collection, available now, features 30 items of affordable yet stylish furniture and accessories in cork, loosely categorised into three groups; dining, working and lounging. Explore the full collection here. Pleasingly of course, the affordability of Ikea means it’s possible to justify buying more than one item!
