Cork Wallcoverings

Author: Shawndrea Corbin
Issue: June, 2013, Page 44
From the Modern Rustic collection by York Wallcoverings, this Sueded Cork wallpaper is specially designed to look like cork, but is actually made of a durable embossed vinyl.


A natural insulator, cork has long been a wise (although often overlooked) material option for walls. It also possesses a wonderfully textured surface, a key design component when creating a successful neutral palette in the home. Check out our sampling of the latest looks in cork (and cork-inspired) wallpapers, ranging from Old-World patterns to trendy metallic sheens.

This Cork wallcovering features white cork set against a metallic silver. From York Wallcoverings, the wall treatment is part of the Candice Olson Dimensional Surfaces line and is made from specialty natural cork.

Gilded Cork wallpaper from Innovations USA was recently introduced. The line features subtle hints of sparkle and a rich texture.
From Anna French’s Lyric collection, this Birch Cork wallpaper comes in silver (shown), as well as white and gold sheens.

The Silhouette wallpaper from York Wallcoverings is part of the Walt Disney Signature Inspired by Classic Films collection. The wallpaper features a screened on pattern against cork and is made from harvested renewable resources. Shown here in White on Dark Silver, the design is also available in Coffee on Dusty Gold, White Glaze on White, and Gold on Brown color options.
The Ceriman Natural Cork wallpaper from Thibaut comes in four colorways. Part of the Neutral Resource collection, the wallpaper is a lovely pairing of neutral colors and metallic accents set in a romantic pattern.
