We adore the versatility of bamboo, how it crops up in everything from earrings to iPod speakers, and how it’s rapidly renewable. So, today for your viewing pleasure, we’ve rounded up five home products that show interesting, innovative and inspired uses of bamboo.
1. Braided Money Tree from RedEnvelope.com ($29.99)
Bamboo plants are a symbol of good fortune in many Asian cultures, so this makes the perfect plan for your home, office, or as a gift (bonus: money plants are intended for indoor use). You can even “upgrade” to bamboo container.
2. Chrysalis Wall Flat from Inhabit ($86)
Made from molded bamboo paper pulp, these wall flats instantly add texture and interest to your walls. We love how flexible they are: you can use one as a focal point to cleverly disguise wall imperfections or cover an entire room with these wall flats to make a stronger statement.
3. Modern Bamboo Spring Chair from Modern Bamboo ($690-710)
Available in three swoonworthy hues, these ultra modern chairs work equally well in a home or office setting. The sleek, undulating lines lend a simple, yet artistic vibe to the space.

The muted, earthy tones and sensual smoothness of these bamboo textiles are sure to transform your bedroom into an oasis of calm. The crisp combination of white and beige is effortlessly elegant.

This clever and eye-catching clock was inspired by Kirie, the Japanese art of paper cutting. It mixes ivory acrylic and bamboo for whimsical, yet worldly appeal.
