Design Sleuth: Cork Trivet

Issue 5 · Inspired by Iberia · February 2, 2012

In a Swedish kitchen, a bracelet of beads on the wall is actually a very functional cork trivet.

We spotted the trivet in a model kitchen designed by Leva Husfabrik, a small Swedish manufacturer of homes and hand-built furniture. Like the simple wooden homes themselves, the model interiors are filled with small personal touches. To recreate the look, you can use our instructions for DIY: Wooden Bead Trivet, or purchase one from Ferm Living.
