Champagne Cork Doorstop
Resilient, flexible, and waterproof, cork's unique physical qualities make it a strategic material for all kinds of interior solutions. Stewart Rose tapped the hardy bark as the hallmark of his new design firm, XL Cork, which puts the stuff to work as handsome home furnishings. This ginormous doorstop will take that annoying squeaky swinging door in your house and literally put a cork in it. And here's a fun fact to tell your friends: This doorstop is 110 times bigger than a regular champagne cork and equivalent to 1,300 of them in weight.
