Bamboo Cool

Bamboo has finally shaken off it's daggy Seventies image and is now officially the rapidly renewable design material of choice.

Yes, bamboo is cool.

With strength on par with steel, bamboo can be a great structural material.

We've seen brightly painted faux bamboo furniture pieces for a while now
and it can be pretty pricey in the shops.

If you like this look, charity stores often have bamboo furniture, mirrors etc.
all they need is a clean and a can of spray paint to achieve a very
similar look, so get creative.

Trippy looking light.
Bamboo has been split to achieve a 'hair' look to
diffuse the light.

How cute, not only is this iPhone made of bamboo, it also
comes with little octopus, aahhhhh.

So simple, the bamboo ladder is a design classic.

More painted faux bamboo, love the yellow.

Bamboo mirrors look so cool painted. I especially like the mirrors painted white
on a deep feature coloured background, very stylish.

This is so awesome, a bamboo Vespa.

I like these chairs, they're quite striking.
