"We are extremely honored, as this is our first time participating in this show," said Janet Wansor, VP of Jensen Leisure.
Kaffe Bistro is a mixed media piece designed by Dick Bjork, combining Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) 100% ipe timber with stainless steel.
The FSC certification is the global “gold standard” in independent, third-party forest certification. It guarantees that the wood comes from well-managed forests. Jensen Leisure's timber comes from the Chiquitania tropical dry forests of Bolivia. Because of the nature of these forests, trees grow very slowly, producing some of the world’s strongest and most durable timber species, growing to be over 100 years old before being carefully harvested.
