Bamboo – Edwardian Style – 1980-Present
In the 1800's, the Victorians loved their bamboo furniture. Today it has gained in popularity and once again is very trendy.
Bamboo is not really a variety of wood; it is a type of grass. With the recent demand for environmentally conscious design and renewable resources, bamboo furniture has never been hotter. Designers are now incorporating bamboo in innovative and creative ways.
While imported goods from the China Seas trade had influenced furniture design in Europe throughout the 18th century, the popularity of Asian inspired furniture and design reached a peak with the John Nash designed The Royal Pavilion at Brighton, completed by the Prince Regent between 1817 and 1822.
Bamboo first captured the Western imagination back in the 16th century, when travellers to the Far East sent back tales of a wondrous plant, Bamboo. Bamboo then became popular during the, Edwardian period. This furniture was light and less formidable than the dark, heavy, ornate furniture of the Victorian era.
We have created a Collection of products all hand crafted and forged or cast from premium grade solid brass also covering door handles, door knobs and a range of other accessories, all reflecting the organic theme of this era.
As was common in this architectural period most Bamboo products are face fixed to the door with exposed screw heads (fittings are supplied). All door knobs and levers are sold in pairs but they can be ordered singularly if specifically required. Knobs are left unsprung and levers are sprung, unless otherwise requested.
All Bamboo products are available in our extensive range of surface patinations. See our Finishes page to find out more.
Please browse through the product types to view the Collection.
