Knock on Cork
Wickanders cork flooring is something of a natural wonder. The company’s process of extracting and harvesting cork is mindful and “revolutionary,” never damaging trees in any way. As a home decor element, the resilient material resists everyday wear and tear, provides an anti-slip surface, insulates sound and warmth and is soft underfoot, lending maximum comfort. As if that wasn’t enough, well, it just looks plain pretty. Available in an array of interesting textures and finishes, these aren’t the humdrum planks you’ll come across in any manner of design store. Whether you choose a bright blonde or rich cafe shade, the floors completely transform the look and ambiance of a room. (For proof positive, check out ecofabulous’ MODERN LIVING House Tour.) Ticking all of the proverbial boxes in terms of style and sustainability, Wickanders is an indispensable element in any household looking to green itself.
