Word of the Day: Thork ?!

Word of the Day: Thork ?!

I learned a new word this week from the interior design world: thork. What is it? Here's a hint: I'm not referring to a quest level in World of Warcraft (Thanks, Google). Think you know?

Thork is a veneered-cork material that is touted as having the appearance of "higher quality cork" and is "self-healing" like this 5-Piece Thork Circle Set from Crate and Barrel, priced at $30. A new spin on an old favorite material or just a new way to make sales? Let us know what you think!
