HF Weekly Obsession: This Bamboo Ain't For LuausSaturday, December 08, 2007
Don't run and hide when you hear the words "bamboo furniture". This is not the tiki-hut variety you are accustomed to. Maria Yee's Bamboo Timbre pieces feature amazing texture and sleek finishes. The Metro Cone table is no exception. Finished in a lucious Toffee (at left) that looks good enough to top your sundae with, every striation of the bamboo comes out. While the midnight finish shows off the sleek design (which holds its own, by the way), it's the toffee that really makes the piece shine. Ain't that sweet?
