Now trending: 5 cork products that pop out

Natural, versatile and surprisingly strong, what’s not to love about cork!

Text by Louisa Clare Lim

Environmentally friendly and having a distinctive tactility, cork is delightfully versatile. The all-natural material is also anti-static, anti-microbial, water-resistant and fire-resistant.

No longer just for bottle corks and cork boards, this trendy material can now be seen all over and is used in countless applications, from tableware to panelling. Favoured for its raw, utilitarian aesthetic, it also matches well with other natural materials and elements.

#1 Cork Family (above)

Designed by Jasper Morrison, the Cork Family comprises three robust stools or side tables made entirely of cork. Lightweight but durable, they have a delightful velvety feel to them.
