Flickr Find: Cork Wall

Cork is one of our favorite green materials. We saw earlier this week that Yemm & Hart will recycle your wine bottle corks into floor tiles. Here we see large cork "bricks" on the wall of a mid century modern home...

The photo was snapped in the interior of a modern home at an estate sale. We've seen cork used in thin, tile-size applications before, but never in blocks like this! We have to say, this just strengthens our love for the material. (Photo via roxydynamite's photostream on Flickr.)
