At Home with Cork

10/12/2021



When launching our cork collection last month, we knew we wanted to start off by sharing our fascination with cork itself. Being a rapidly renewable material and a powerful carbon sink is what drew us to cork to begin with.

That said, it is our hope to build furniture and objects to be passed down for generations. In order to do so, we know we need to speak to more than just material features but to the physical connection you experience when living with these objects.





For us, the best way to illustrate this was to bring these pieces into our own home to show how warm and liveable they really are.

At first look, the shapes are friendly and inviting, but it is their surfaces that really draw you in. Though durable and resilient, the hand of the finished surfaces feel more like velvet than wood. They immediately become grounding elements in a busy family home.





Above and below are photos from our home on the west coast of Bainbridge Island surrounded by the Salish Sea captured in that magical end of summer light.

For more on the collection, please visit our site or reach out to us here. If you are in New York, all the pieces can be seen by appointment at Colony.
