The Aussie Furniture faves, Koala, have just taken sustainable products to a whole new level, with the launch of Australia’s first ever sofa made from cork trees. This is the perfect couch for both wine lovers and animal lovers alike! The launch of the all new cork lounge will pave the way for leather alternatives, as Aussies look to more sustainable homeware options.
The all new sofa imitates the luxe look that customers love from traditional leather sofas, Koala’s Cork Sofa uses only natural, animal-free and sustainable materials, designed to keep both you and the planet extra comfy. The lounge is made entirely from cork, with no cows being harmed in the making of the sofa. Cork delivers a long-lasting durability without the nasty chemicals or moral dilemma.
Why Choose A Cork Couch?
Cork is both a Biodegradable and renewable material, and is kind on the planet for plenty of reasons! Cork oak trees support biodiversity and absorb great amounts of CO2. Even better – once the tree has been stripped of its bark (the process is undertaken to acquire the cork) it is able to absorb five times more CO2. If that wasn’t enough to convince you to make the switch, cork is a highly water-resistant material, with properties that can help with any accidental spillages, making them hassle-free. The Koala cork sofa is easy to clean and highly durable and has been made for the messy, magical moments in life.
The Cork Sofa features a timeless design with sophisticated finishes and the natural, textural look of the cork leather material, so you can enjoy the finer things in life. The sofa has been designed using only animal-free and eco-friendly dyes and coating materials. The Cork Sofa is available in two colours; Yarra Cork and Jenolan Black, to suit all tastes and spaces.
