Who says you always need furniture that’s only made with durable metals and plush materials? Bamboo furniture can be just as sleek and stylish thanks to their clean lines and natural appearance. And perhaps the best part is bamboo—a strong and hardy wood that derives from a species of grass—is one of the most sustainable materials available. Bamboo requires little energy to grow, helps prevent soil erosion and provides food for both humans and wildlife, among other environmentally friendly features. But loving it for its good looks is fine too.
