Bamboo furniture is renowned to be eco-friendly, water resistant with a bit ‘hippie’ touch. I do love the hippie accent, as it reminds me of 1970s laid back lounges, filled with a cigarette smoke and long conversations about the ways of the World (what I was told…). These days, in the new search for an eco-friendly, reclaimed furniture, it is still firmly ‘in-vogue’. Sturdier than oak, water-resistant and as aesthetically pleasing as the most coveted hardwoods, bamboo is a sustainable natural resource and a pioneer material in the movement for eco-friendly furniture. Bamboo grows exceptionally fast and can be harvested for a few years without damage, so you can buy bamboo furniture with an eco-clear conscience.
And with it fitting so well into a rustic, coastal décor, it is a popular choice when furnishing Cornish holiday lettings or a rural retreat. It gives this relaxed, weekend atmosphere to a home, something you would like to see yourself when going on holiday by the sea.
This Art Deco inspired Bamboo 2 Seater Sofa, is very glamorous, giving your guests a touch of luxury (which is something they expect on one hand), with it’s solid base, plumpy duck feather cushions and rich glaze frame. But at the same time, it brings this old school, laid back atmosphere of the land with no laptops or mobile phones… perfect choice, and something your guests will thoroughly enjoy!
