after falling for the lovely cork tables in my recent 55 kvadrat post, i quickly discovered they were from the new ilse crawford for ikea range, which got me thinking about the increasing use of cork in home interiors this year – it’s definitely becoming a major new trend!
i remember being at the stockholm furniture fair a few years ago with my friend helen and spotting a few choice cork items (find 3 and it has the makings of a new trend – we did!), so it’s lovely to see how the material has filtered down in the past few years from trade fair to high street stores.
it’s not surprising that cork has become the buzz material of the moment; it’s aesthetically beautiful, functional and eco-friendly. ilse crawford’s new ikea collection explores the natural beauty of cork alongside ceramics and glass, embracing simple forms, honest imperfections and soft textures to bring balance and wellbeing to your home.
