It’s a cork tray. You might think it’s a little ho-hum/boring, but I’d wager a guess it would be entirely useful when it comes to shuttling things back and forth from the kitchen to table (or sofa, if that’s your preferred spot). Cork is renewable and recyclable, as you know, but the main function here is that it would keep your cups of tea/biscuits/etc. from sliding around and making a mess. However, if you should spill, no worries, as it can be wiped clean with a wet cloth.
From Ferm Living, where you may also purchase the trays (€ 25.00 – € 31.00).
