A new take on cork flooring
While we’ve all seen the pennies embedded in resin as flooring and bar tops, Jelinek Cork has a new spin on the aesthetic that’s much greener, and frankly, more beautiful in my opinion. The company cuts recycled wine corks at a similar size, and lays them down to create a naturally resilient and water-resistent surface. In order to make the tiles, corks are sliced like a long salami into quarter-inch thick pieces, then glued to a backing paper to make for easier installation (and cool patterns). Some are colors, some are natural, but the result across the board is stunning. See the whole collection here.
