Reclaimed Wooden Furniture by Hugo Franca
In addition to using cork for my final furniture piece, I potentially want to combine it with the well-respected, traditional and luxurious plant-based material. Wood is a category of furniture all within itself:
Types classified by materials

It has historically been used within furniture for centuries because of it's strength and luxurious aesthetic. As I will be pushing the importance of using plant-based materials and showing how they succeed animal by-products, I thought as wood is not negatively judged on it's plant-based origin, it would make a perfect combination of materials with cork, a material often associated with wine bottle stoppers. My furniture is targeted to the ethical vegans, environmentalists and conscious consumers who want to be responsible with their purchases and as a lot of these users current furniture may be wooden, this is a material they support and would want in their homes.
