Here's another (maybe dumb) question about cork... we've been thinking of putting cork into our condo to replace the icky carpet that came with it.

I for one would LOVE it if MCM became the buzzword, as it takes up way less space then 'Mid-Century Modern' in the title, and doesn't get anyones feathers in a ruffle.
