Spotlight on: the Yves Collection

We’re excited to take you behind the scenes of our Yves Collection. Read on to find out more about how this collection was designed and came to life.

Yves: Coastal and contemporary craftsmanship

The vision of any new collection is articulated in the concept design stage. When it came to Yves, both the materials and the freshest design trends inspired the creation of three beautiful pieces - Yves Bed, Yves Coffee Table and Yves Side Table. In the beautiful detailing of wrapped water hyacinth, the craftsmanship behind the design is clear. The use of earthy, raw and sustainable materials on contemporary curved shapes heroes the Modern Nomad trend. This is a collection that comfortably sits in any coastal or modern contemporary space.

The intention of Yves was to create distinctive pieces in a coastal style, created from sustainable materials. Water hyacinth is an ideal material for this purpose. Considered an invasive plant, removing water hyacinth to produce furniture is good for the environment. As it needs very little processing to manufacture, it’s a more environmentally conscious material than wicker or rattan.

Built by artisans

Once designed, skilled artisans at the factory construct our Yves products. Water hyacinth wicker is made by braiding ropes of golden-coloured hyacinth reeds, then weaving them together. Once woven, its unique thick weave creates a decorative, textured look. This beautiful texture complements the subtle curves of the bed and coffee table.
