See bamboo in 3 new ways

How do you love your bamboo? In its natural state? Woven through with texture? Or stylishly reimagined?

At House of Bamboo, we have 3 different collections that give you new ways to style your home with bamboo. The Organic Collection features bamboo in its native state. Our Textured Collection features bamboo that will weave its magic on you. And our Contemporary Collection showcases bamboo re-engineered in ways you never thought was possible.

Explore all 3 Collections here.

Contemporary Collection

Bamboo has always been loved for its strength, lightness and flexibility. But these inner qualities could never be fully realised in bamboo left in its native state. And so, our Contemporary Collection features bamboo reimagined and re-engineered with unfamiliar square edges that make exciting new possibilities, real. In fencing, screening, shading, cladding, decking, flooring and even construction. Yes, bamboo has so much more it can offer over timber.

Just one look and you will not believe your eyes. Who knew it was bamboo?

Handmade Collection

At the heart of bamboo is strength. But its outer layer is softer and flexible. It can be woven into wonderful things, like its cousin rattan. Naturally renewable, they each create their own signature look. Woven panels for walls. Rattan for a chair, a cabinet, a bedhead. Their texture makes you want to reach out your hand and touch them, every time you walk past.

Natural texture weaves its magic throughout your home.

Organic Collection

Our organic collection features bamboo expressed in its natural state. Poles, woven panels and screens full of natural texture that take you to far-away places. Palm fiber transports you to the tropics. Natureed®, the most weather resistant and durable screening of its kind features 50% more reeds than cheaper alternatives.

Surround yourself with wanderlust, every day, at home.

Explore Our Three Collections In Video

Natural materials often tend to evoke exotic or organic designs but in reality they suit a wide range of styles from Santorini and French Provincial to mid-century and Scandinavian. This is why our products are part of three distinct collections: Organic, Textured and Contemporary.

Click on the images below to get a feel for each collection and explore the products in each range.

Contemporary Collection

Far from its original tubular shape, bamboo can now be engineered into timber-like products that outperform most timbers. Our Symphony Series and SeaChange Series® exemplify this with their range of slatted cladding and screens, suitable for indoor and outdoor fencing, shading, cladding and screening applications. Watch the video here.

Textured Collection

Bamboo poles might have the tensile strength of steel but their outer skin can be woven into intricate and textured panels, perfect for joinery and cladding applications. Similarly to bamboo, rattan is a naturally renewable plant that grows in the tropical regions of Africa, Asia and Australasia and can be woven into the very popular webbing you often see in furniture, cabinetry and walls. Our woven bamboo panels and rattan ranges are the richest in Australia with more than 15 designs to choose from. Get a feel for all different patterns here.

Organic Collection

Contemporary Bamboo Screen Shading

Last but not least, the Organic collection gathers all the essential bamboo products you know and love such as bamboo poles, bamboo screens and the lesser known Natureed®. Natureed® is a trademarked product exclusive to House of Bamboo that contains up to 50% more reed than similar products on the market, making it a very durable and weather resistant fencing, screening and shading solution. See all the products in our Organic collection here.

Pool Compliant Fencing Options For Boundary Fence

Everything you envision in timber, can be made with bamboo.

Despite its tubular shape, bamboo can now be engineered into Glubam (or glued laminated bamboo) to provide the exact same finish as timber.

The timber shortage is currently impacting projects worldwide but bamboo being one of the world’s most sustainable resources it is not only plentiful but good for the environment.

With their timber-like finish, Glubam cladding and slats perfectly suit a modern aesthetic.

It is no secret that bamboo is an incredibly versatile material for architects and interior designers to work with. Traditionally used for structural purposes, it is now mostly used for its visual appeal. To help you decide where to travel when borders finally open, or to inspire you to turn your home into a holiday destination, we rounded up our favourite hotels, holidays houses, lodges and accommodation of all sorts that champion bamboo and natural materials. (Pictured above: Resende Villas and Barracuda Beach Hotel & Villas shot by Tarso Figueira).

1 – Wild Coast Tented Lodge, Sri Lanka

This spectacular 5-star resort on the edge of Yala National Park is not only an architectural wonder, it is also a masterclass in sustainability. Because of its close proximity with the national park, it was built with as little impact as possible on the local environment. Our favourite feature is the impressive bamboo chandelier that floats over the bar, suspended to the 10m bamboo dome crowning the restaurant. (image: Marc Hernandez Folguera)

2 – Bamboo Lodge – China

If there is a hotel on this list that makes the most of bamboo’s versatility, it is Bamboo Lodge in China. From bamboo poles lining up the restaurant’s ceiling to the monumental balustrade of the main staircase and the curved feature walls in all bedrooms, this project is proof that bamboo applications are only limited by our imagination. And if you are a rattan enthusiast, this handcrafted mosaic should inspire you for your next DIY project. (Image: Ce Wang, Junwu Long)

3 – Bawah Reserve, Indonesia

6 islands, 3 lagoons, 13 beaches. That is all yours to discover when you stay in the remote Anambas Archipelago 300km northeast of Singapore. Turquoise waters, white sand and bamboo galore is what awaits you at this luxury resort, built above the lagoon. From the tikki bar inspired restaurant to the open spa hut, Bawah Reserve is a true testament of the structural strength of bamboo. (Image: luxurytravelmag)

4 – Hotel Jakarta, Amsterdam

You would not think you are in the docks of Amsterdam when walking along the bamboo cladded walls of Hotel Jakarta. The 4-star hotel stands at the edge of the river where ships used to depart for Indonesia in the 19th century. Architects used bamboo veneers, panels and beams throughout the building which contributed to Hotel Jakarta receiving an “Excellent” rating from BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method). (Image: booking.com)

5 – Sala Samui Chaweng Beach Resort, Thailand

Open since 2018, this resort took 5 years to design and build. And it is easy to see why. Each room is unique and different styles cohabit in harmony throughout the property. The lobby featuring an undulating ceiling of bamboo blinds has pure Santorini vibes, the spa is a brightly coloured pop art studio and the rattan-lined bathrooms and bamboo screened private pools transport guests to Bali. The resort may be surrounded by pristine beaches and lush rainforest but it’s the flawless design of the complex that steals the show. (Image: Wison Tungthunya)

6 – Peliva Nature & Suites, Greece

Nestled between an olive grove and cliffs overlooking the Pagasetic Gulf, this stylish holiday house is Greek living at its best. The reed pergola allows guests to sit outside and take in the unobstructed ocean views while rattan is cleverly used throughout the house from the living room to the bedrooms. The colour palette is exclusively composed of neutral tones that naturally blend in with the surrounding landscape conveying a sense of calm and serenity. (Image: Dimitris Spyrou)

7 – Innhouse Eco Hotel, China

Echoing the natural beauty of the surrounding forests, this eco-hotel in China was built as a model for responsible tourism in the region. Fully cladded with laminated bamboo, it is a perfect example of environmentally sensitive architecture coupled with contemporary design. (Image: Oval Partnership)

8 – Playa Viva Treehouse, Mexico

The most coveted room of the Playa Viva resort in Guerrerro is their picture-perfect bamboo treehouse located right on the beach. Spread on two levels, this open-air villa stays true to the sustainable mission of the resort. Built with local resources (wood, palms, carved stones and of course bamboo) it runs exclusively on solar power and all water is recycled. (Image: The Cubic Studio , Leonardo Palafox)

9 – Boheme Hotel, Mykonos

Boheme may be located on Mykonos but its design is pure Santorini. White walls, pure lines, vibrant vegetation and tonkin pergolas. Probably one of the easiest interior design styles to replicate at home. You may just have to pass on the expansive water views. (Image: booking.com)

10 – Marriott Resort Momi Bay, Fiji

As guests step in the grand lobby of the Marriott Resort in Momi Bay,  their eyes are instantly drawn to the cathedral-like ceiling entirely wrapped in palm fibre. Proudly supplied by House of Bamboo, this textured material was chosen by Chada designers to pay tribute to the original Fijian huts while blending seamlessly with the more contemporary design of the resort. (Image: Marriott) 

11 – Tiing Hotel, Bali

It would be near impossible to list all the villas, lodges, hotels, huts and resorts that showcase bamboo in Bali but Tiing Hotel deserves a special mention. Far from your usual Bali style accommodation, it pays homage to the famous local grass in a subtle yet arresting way. If bamboo poles are used to clad the doors of this ultra modern villa, they were also imprinted in the concrete walls, leaving their trace without compromising the contemporary design of the space. (Image: Ben Hosking).
