A sustainable way to decorate

Maybe bamboo makes you think of the 1970s housing trend, but the organic material has now become a very popular material in the modern housing trend, and more people are taking into consideration when furnishing their homes. 
Bamboo is one of the most sustainable materials and represented in Lene Bjerre’s great range of furniture, for both outdoor and indoor décor.

Spring and summer vibes

There is nothing like sunny days and mild summer evenings in the garden or on the terrace. Create this gorgeous mood in your store as a cosy oasis with bamboo furniture and let the cosiness fill your outdoor areas. Let the bamboo’s beautiful golden colour send us back to warm skies and southern atmosphere.
 

Create personal décor

Why just decorate with bamboo in the outdoor area? Incorporate bamboo in the home’s interior design too. Bamboo adds the classic Scandinavian décor, which is characterized by the pure minimalistic look, a discreet warm and naturalness.
 
Add the décor the feel of good craftsmanship and mix the natural bamboo with home accessories in dusty green, blue and pink nuances, which are this season’s hottest colour trend.

The benefits of bamboo

The bamboo tree can already be harvested within 1 to 5 years since the tree was planted. If you compare it to an oak tree, it takes up to 40-50 years before they are ready to be harvested. Also, bamboo does not require replanting, after it is harvested it will grow a new shoot from the existing root.

Bamboo trees can grow everywhere and on top that, it grows incredibly fast without the help of either fertilizers or plant protection products. It can grow from 20cm to 1 meter per day, depending on the species and surroundings. In the tropical or subtropical parts of the world, it grows 1 meter a day. Due to the fast growth, Bamboo releases 35 % more oxygen than most of the typical wood types, which contributes to a positive environmental effect on the reduction of the Co2.

The hardness of wood is measured on the Brinell scale. The hardness of other trees such as ash, oak and beech trees is between 3,4 and 3,7 compared to the bamboo hardness which is on 4,7 and is significantly higher. Because of this, it is very popular to use furniture, due to it being a very hardwearing material. 

The production of bamboo also contributes to a lot of job opportunities for people in less developed countries.

Extend the life of your bamboo furniture

Bamboo is an incredibly durable material and harder than traditional wood types. They are therefore suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Because bamboo is a natural material, it requires care in order to preserve its beautiful colour and textures.

Untreated bamboo furniture used outdoors will eventually be marked by nature’s dirt, which can lead to the beautiful yellowish natural colour of bamboo taking on a grey coating. Due to this, we recommend that you wash the furniture before every season and a few times during. It is important that you wash the furniture with soap intended for bamboo, but be aware to not use too much water. You will get the best results if you wash your furniture on a sunny day, although you do not want to place your furniture in direct sunlight. After washing apply oil or wood protection, this will make your bamboo look nice longer.

Keep your bamboo furniture indoors throughout the winter and during wet months and generally avoid allowing your bamboo furniture to stand outdoors in direct sun or rain.
