ART + DECORATION 66 M a n u f a c t u r e d from organic and recyclable cork, these stools are just some of the creative furnishings produced by artist Laurie Wiid van Heerden at Wiid Design studio in Cape Town, South Africa. The cork is harvested from the bark of cork oak trees grown in Northwest Africa, a lightweight material that's naturally buoyant and fire retardant. It's also sustainable — the trees live around 300 years and continually generate new layers of cork. The studio molds the material into beautiful forms for furniture, lighting, and accessories, sometimes combining it with maple carved with traditional African patterns and Italian terrazzo marble. The stools come in a variety of shapes and two natural colors: dark cork, which is manufactured from recycled cork particles and designed for outdoor use, and light cork for indoor use only. African cork stools, $1,325, at Kanju, 154 Glass St., 214.453.1270, Rebecca Sherman D esigner Jay Jeffers' new door hardware c o l l a b o r a t i o n w i t h A c c u r a t e L o c k & Hardware was inspired b y h i s e v e r y d a y encounters with great design.
