Cork material, much loved in the 1970s, is now seeing a comeback in the style stakes. Apart from having a nice texture and eye-pleasing colour, cork is 100% natural, reusable and recyclable. Whether from the environmental, social or economic perspectives, it is one of the world's most versatile materials. It's no surprise that cork is widely used in interior decorations. Although, what is the first association that usually comes to mind? Your standard office cork board. In this blog post, we have gathered some inspirational ideas on how to bring some cork into your home and particularly, into your kitchen.
