" Bamboo is sacred.   It embodies the interconnectedness of all life on this planet," says Gale Beth Goldberg.

Although its roots are in the Pacific Rim, bamboo's runners spread to Central and South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa. Now, Ms. Goldberg shows us how to bring bamboo creatively home, teaching us how to live with bamboo indoors and outdoors.

Every room of the house can be decorated or accented with beautiful, sensual bamboo furniture, flooring, wall covering, ceiling material, and accessories. Bamboo is highly versatile, requiring little care yet having an appeal that can change a mundane setting into an exotic oasis.

For do-it-yourselfers, the bamboo projects in this book - from a simple ladle to a more complex pergola for the garden - will inspire you to create more designs of your own.

The resource directory facilitates connections to designers of bamboo architecture and interiors, manufacturers, artists, suppliers, and bamboo organizations who present bamboo as a cosmopolitan material for our time.

The good news about bamboo is that it's upscale and sophisticated. The really good news is that it has a sustainable harvest that renews every five years. Using it is not only good for the earth, it's good for your image.
