Trending Now: Cork, Glass, and Wood Gifts Worth Adding to Your Wedding Registry
These common materials can be used in uncommon ways.
Cork, glass, and wood are all materials that you're bound to see in just about anyone's home décor. They're such classic materials that you no doubt already have some products made of them on your wedding registry (and in your own home!), but if you don't then you came to the right place! We personally love each of these materials because of their versatility—they're able to meld with just about any décor scheme, making them easy to incorporate with pieces you already own. Plus, they're chameleons when it comes to style—glass can be colorful and whimsical or modern, ornate or understated (and everything in-between); wood can fit as seamlessly into a home that's whitewashed and beachy as it can in a space that's more mid-century mod; cork can be surprisingly modern and chic or crafty and cool.
When it comes to registering, an important thing to think about is what will work well with your pre-existing décor, and what makes sense for your lifestyle. If you and your significant other love filling your home with boho patterns and prints, consider registering for Moroccan tea glasses. Into a more glam vibe? Go ahead and register for those gold cork placemats. Big into entertaining and have the space to do it? We say go for it and add that mango wood farmhouse table to your registry. To further get you excited, we've gone ahead and chosen some of our favorite cork, glass and wood registry pieces that are truly special.
