Decorate with bamboo: reasons to love it

Bamboo coffee table, a novelty in interior design

Bamboo is one of the most widely used natural fibers. It’s ecological, resistant, and capable of providing a lot of warmth. Until recently it was a regular material used outdoors and was mostly found in gardens, patios, and terraces. Here, it added a homely touch to open and outdoor spaces. However, this material, so popular in Asia, has also found its way into the interiors of our homes.

In addition to how beautiful bamboo is and how easy it is to combine it, given its neutral tone, it’s got numerous advantages. The most important one is that it’s a one hundred percent ecological and sustainable material. It’s the fastest-growing plant on the planet, even if you cut it down. Moreover, it can reach up to 70 meters tall.

This is because bamboo is a herbaceous plant, which means that each year it sprouts anew. Equally, it doesn’t need any previous manipulation or chemical processing to use, as often is the case with other materials.

But that’s not all! Its fiber composition makes it resistant, yet, at the same time flexible. This is why you can have it in the form of a chair, a rug, flooring, or even kitchenware.

Having said all this, you’ll undoubtedly be eager to include some pieces of this material in your home. It may be exactly what you need to bring freshness to your home.
