Silver Sage Village in Boulder has cork floors in their Common House
kitchen and dining room.  They're beautiful and are quiet, soft, etc.
They are less than 6 months old so I can't comment on durability.

Any dogs in that house?  We're considering cork floors when we move
into Mosaic Commons this fall, but since we have a large golden
retriever with long nails, we're a little concerned about the
durability of soft flooring.  (On the other hand, given that I'm
partially disabled due to ankle trauma, soft flooring has considerable
appeal over other options!)
