Discover the Striking Ebb Tide Buffet by Michael Coffey
Michael Coffey is a talented sculptor. He creates amazing art furniture and masters the art of handcraft. He has already developed many different pieces such as rocking lounge chair, side tables, coffee tables and Buffets. Today the Blog Buffets and Cabinets is going to present the EBB TIDEBuffetand the Swahili IIBuffet.
Take a look at the artisanal process behind the final piece. This is Michael Coffrey’s office. It is rather inspiring, don’t you think?
This is the EBB TIDE .This dynamic cabinet/sculpture is made from beautiful exotic hardwood. Deep carved wood exterior and sides form undulating lines, sunken nooks and crevices to create a formidable facade. The unit rests on a 4″ high Plexiglas base and has four adjustable shelves.
Michael Coffrey: “I enjoy the entire process of working with wood – from the idea of its origins in the living tree, through the excitement of bringing color and figure to the surface in carving; to the satiny feel of a wooden surface which is finely sanded and finished. I could achieve the same results in form in other media, and some would present less structural limitations, but I would miss the complex satisfactions of this natural material.”
Finally, we present the Swahili II: A sculptural cabinet with 4” thick doors and sides carved in solid Mozambique. Interior fitments include trays for bottles and glasses, pull-outs for stereo and television units as well as drawers for CD storage. Wooden Buffets are simply majestic. They fit in every style and they are timeless.
