This spring’s ICFF  brought some stunning new treats from one of Inhabitat’s perennial favorites , Iannone Designs . The star of Iannone’s ICFF booth was this wonderful Cork Mosaic Credenza  that features a charming woodland tableau formed from variegated layers of sustainably harvested cork. Its sprightly reliefs of birds, deer and branches secures Iannone’s spot as the epitome of eco-chic.
Iannone  infuses an elegant mod aesthetic with a top-notch assortment of sustainable and eco-friendly materials. Their designs incorporate “a variety of materials chosen for their intrinsic beauty and eco-friendly properties. These include FSC plywoods  and formaldehyde free plywoods, locally sourced lumber from managed forests and sustainable materials such as bamboo and sorghum board.”
We love how this credenza champions the cause of cork, a natural, renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable material . Iannone inlaid different shades and textures of cork to create the tableau, admirably expressing the wooden texture of the trees and the deer’s dark brown fur. The sideboard’s frame is constructed out of solid walnut and it’s been hand finished with a non-toxic oil.
