Beautiful Bamboo

Have you heard about the beauty of bamboo? Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world, and for that reason makes a great building material because it renews itself at such a fast rate. Some species can grow as much as three to four feet a day or one to two inches an hour! This is due to a unique rhizome-dependent system, but growth is highly dependent on local soil and climate conditions.

Now you can buy "green" by purchasing furniture made of bamboo. We are fortunate to offer two pieces made of handcrafted bamboo we think you'll love: the unique chair and ottoman reminiscent of Charles and Ray Eames of the 1940's, or our spiffy end table.--Ruth Mitchell
