These pieces of bamboo furniture come in all shapes and sizes, including tables with legs made from the material, to lighting designs that are completely covered in this type of wood.

Many designers use this bamboo material to keep with traditional craftsmanship of making furniture, as this wood has been around for centuries. For example, Jo Nagasaka is a builder who focused his efforts on using bamboo for one of his latest collections, and the result was a collection of traditional pieces that exuded a certain Japanese quality. Due to the bamboo used, the furniture was also extremely light, allowing users to move items around the home with ease.

When it comes to pieces of bamboo furniture, this material is ideal for creating traditional-looking, lightweight items.
