Bamboo is beautiful, natural, versatile, sustainable!

Bambus by Xu Wei

It is a perennial, ornamental grass that has been part of the Asian culture for centuries and has grown in popularity around the world for a variety of uses……

…one being my favorite, of course, the woven wood blind or bamboo blind.  Their resurgence in our eco-friendly society has delighted many a designer due to their adaptability into just about any design style…..

….to cottage chic and beyond!

Since the first of the year, we have seen many of our clients invite this natural, well-liked, product into their homes in a wide range of its native colors and textures.

…perhaps because they recognize the rich resource, perhaps because they love the “touch of nature”, perhaps because it diffuses so beautifully the grey Michigan daylight and creates a friendly buffer and backdrop against the snowy outside!!!

Myself, I love everything about the look, the feel, the source of bamboo.  I love its innovative uses in our society today and I love its folklore deeply ingrained in Asian traditions. 

So when considering window coverings next time, open your design mind to this warm and personable possibility of bamboo and let me know what you discover!
