JANUARY | rejuvenation

A new year begins and with this new beginning come opportunities. Perhaps you make purposeful resolutions. You may seek new inspiration, direction and re-invigoration. Maybe you simply "let go" here, and "take in" there. There’s no time like now to refresh the spaces where you live, work and play. Dust off those shelved ideas. The right pieces in the right places enhance your lifestyle. They work to help you dodge clutter and often make a smaller place seem larger. Good organic design and quality furnishings reflect your personality and bring comfort and beauty to your home.

Introducing Maria Yee

Maria Yee is a lifestyle design company that fuses modern aesthetic with handcrafted construction.  The company focuses on environmental responsibility through a variety of sustainable practices. Their solid hardwood furniture uses responsibly grown and harvested trees, and many pieces are crafted using rapidly renewable bamboo.

No nails or screws are used on these gorgeous pieces of furniture.  Instead, the company has refined the traditional technique of breathing joinery and tailored it to the modern manufacturing environment.

Here at EWF Modern, we strive to find companies that care about sustainability, which is why Maria Yee is a perfect addition to the multitude of lines we currently carry.

 

 

We would love to show you all the fantastic pieces of Maria Yee furniture we are currently featuring in our Pearl District showroom.  Stop by any day of the week!

The Right Leather Grade For You

Choosing a high quality grade of leather when purchasing a new sofa is extremely important!  At EWF Modern, we believe in providing only the best leather options for our clients. Below is some information about the leather grades we provide on all the sofas in our showroom to help you choose what is right for you.

Full-grain: This type of leather is minimally treated and is the most natural in look and texture.  It showcases the depth of character in each particular hide.

Top-grain: This leather is lightly sanded or buffed to smooth out imperfections in each hide for a more consistent look in grain over an entire piece of furniture.

Aniline dyed:  This is the lightest treatment available for leather and uses no pigment in the process.  It simply enhances the color of the natural hide and is typically used on full-grain leather.

Semi-aniline dyed:  This level of treatment still lets some of the natural characteristics shine through but uses a light pigment to even out coloring.  A thin topcoat is also applied to decrease fading and help with soil-resistance.

 

 

In our Pearl District showroom, all the leather grade options for our sofas fall within the high-quality categories mentioned above.  It's up to you to decide which works best for you home and lifestyle.
