Tuesday’s Trends: Bamboo Revival

Hello Fabulistas! I love design with an Asian influence, and bamboo furnishings keep popping up in my favorite magazines and blogs. This material has been a long-time favorite of mine, but it seemed to fall a bit out of favor in recent years. Yes, I saw it every now and then in a wonderful setting, but now I see it everywhere! Here are a few instances of stylish uses of bamboo I want to share.

Bamboo Privacy Screen

This has to be one of the easiest ways to use bamboo in your home! It makes for a lush, full privacy screen well-suited for canceling out city or neighborhood noise. Walking on a path lined with bamboo would feel like being transported to a remote paradise.

Gilded Bamboo Details

It’s no secret… I have a soft spot for metallics! So I love it when they collide with another current trend. The gold spray paint job on this coffee table frame highlights the faux bamboo details here for an extra glam highlight.

White-Out Bamboo Furniture

Bamboo details, (faux or real), look just as fab when they’re covered in stark white. There’s something so fresh and coastal about this look. It would happily be at home in a cozy beach house.
