The Florence Coffee Table is designed by Yvette Cox. This piece of modern living room furniture features strips of steam-bent wood which basically create a draped ribbon effect. The designer specializes in the technique of steam bending and is actually drawn to it due to the unpredictable pieces and outcomes which come out of the projects. The technique of steam bending requires a lot of expertise, and this enables the designer to let the creativity flow through while building furniture. The majority of her pieces are made using local sources, and Yvette’s work is in part designed with the care of the Mother Nature in mind.
