MNN’s resident food blogger, Robin Shreeves
, recently wrote on the topic of wine corks
and how and why wine guzzlers should recycle them. There are numerous uses for the biodegradable little guys -- most notably flooring (check out Globus Cork
for further evidence) -- including, you guessed it, home furnishings.
I’ve had my eye on these
Jasper Morrison-designed cork stools
for a while now. They're lightweight but sturdy making them easy to move around a room. And since they’re rounded and spongy they’re great for kids and adults prone to wine-fueled stumbles and tumbles.
Made it the Netherlands, these objects de cork are a bit on the pricey side but on sale now at DWR.
