Just when you thought cork had left your kitchen and gone out of style as a wine stopper, it is back with a vengeance invading your living room. This modern looking furniture, the Cork Table and Stool (2002) by Jasper Morrison, supposedly provides comfy, lightweight, sponge seating. These cork alternatives are also great space savers since they can be easily stacked or moved in a jiffy.
The stool and table retail for $298 each at Design Within Reach, which may be a bit pricey but look on the bright side, you'll never have to worry about TCA.
Cool, sleek, with good cork color. Nice nose of new cork. Great finish to any wine cellar or lounge.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
An excellent addition to the home for those who love art as much as they love wine. And while these stylish room accoutrements may go out of style, there's no fear of them being replaced by screwcaps anytime soon.
