Bamboo has long been touted as a green building material. Its quick growth allows vast harvesting with minimal resources and its tough fibers make it tougher than other wood and building materials.
It grows denser than trees, requires less maintenance and can grow up to an inch a day, making it a much greener alternative to harvesting trees for building materials. But did you know it can also replace plastic and other toxic materials used in everyday items?
Bamboo furniture has been around for a long time. But until recently, it’s been considered only for Oriental themed designs. Not anymore. Bamboo furniture has changed the way it looks and is made. Outdoor furniture shown here is the typical look for many bamboo furniture designs.
But indoor furniture looks so elegant and rich, it’s hard to say if it’s bamboo or not. Take a look at this bamboo bed frame from Wholesale Furniture Brokers. It looks like a fine wood bed frame: it’s hard to believe its made from grass.
