Silver Cork – A New “Species” in Wallcovering

May 27, 2010

Well, it’s not really “new”… I’ve installed cork wallcoverings before, as long ago as 10 years.

But what I put up today was quite contemporary, a very thin natural cork (composed of swatches about 5″ square, affixed to a paper backing 36” wide) and covered with a metalic silver coating.

Somewhat tricky to work with, because the rough patches on the cork had a tendency to want to abrade off. But the finished room (a bar area in a private home) was striking.

It was a unique paper and made a definate statement in this contemporary-styled home.
