"come quickly, I am tasting the stars!"
Solid Cork. More than 1900 stoppers are needed to create each table. That’s about 42 pounds of cork, representing more than $47,000 worth of the bubbly stuff to make each table. (We conclude that people like to drink and feel the fizz of Champagne. We respect that.)
Just like our Wine Champagne Bistro Stools™ and just as awesome.
The glass top is ˝” thick and 23” in diameter, allowing you to see the cork below. Like all of our furniture, it is made entirely of corks from bottles of wine consumed in the U.S., and is made in Chicago.
To do our part to help the Mediterranean cork forests stay strong, keep their inhabitants healthy and support their full biodiversity, we donate 10% of the price of each stool purchased to the Cork Forest Conservation Alliance
