California Company Offers Consumers More Options, an Eco-Friendly Water-Based Finish and a Unique Ridged Texture for Casual Living

SANTA CRUZ, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ — EcoLuxury(TM) lifestyle designer Maria Yee, Inc. will introduce new furniture collections with a multitude of options in media and casual dining at the April High Point Market, as well as debuting two finishes that will transform the eco-friendly home furnishings arena.

New designs include pieces finished with a vivid, durable water-based coating that emits no toxic fumes during manufacturing or in the home, along with furnishings featuring an innovative ridged texture that is visually stunning and easy to care for.

“Our new ridged texture has a depth and color dimension that is unique in home furnishings,” said President Maria Yee. “And the new water-based finish is exceptionally clear, durable and genuinely green.”

The company’s new Sausalito collection includes dining tables handcrafted with the designer’s signature BreathingJoinery(TM) – where no nails or screws are used. Sausalito exudes refined luxury while offering an organic look and feel. The ridged surface conceals scratches and fingerprints that high-sheen surfaces often accentuate, and offers a depth and color that flat surfaces cannot provide. Additionally, the ridged texture echoes the specific grain patterns of the timber, so each piece is unique.

“Our motto is one customer, one unique piece at a time,” Yee said. “The skill and judgment that go into making these pieces is truly amazing.”

Masterful design that accommodates the newest technology is key to Maria Yee’s 10 new media cabinets. Each provides a perfect place for today’s most advanced audio-visual equipment. Features include uniquely-crafted mesh coverings that enable remote control use, generous storage for the latest sound bars, child proof drawers, removable back panels and a zero-energy ventilation system that naturally cools the equipment.

“We put ourselves in the consumer’s shoes while designing each piece and developing every finish. We make it personal,” Yee said. “What’s more, we abide by our core belief that if we take from the earth, we should give back to the earth.”

Maria Yee’s new Sausalito and Calistoga collections, along with her new media cabinets, will be on display at the company’s High Point showroom at 118 E. Kivett Dr. for inquiries during the show call (336) 887-7001.
