Just as homes and commercial buildings have undergone design revolutions in recent years, so too has the modern office space.

Restaurants are using bamboo as part of the innovation trend that has swept the industry.

Over the past 15 years or so, restaurants have become some of the most innovative businesses in the world.

Seen here in the floor of a residential kitchen, bamboo was also widely used during the Jewish celebration of Sukkot.

The Jewish holiday of Sukkot - which gets its name from the pluralization of the word Sukkah, meaning "booth" or "tabernacle" - recently came to an end after its annual eight-day celebration.

Bamboo floors and panels can be an key design elements as you mesh the old and the new when redesigning your vintage home.

Designers and DIYers often appreciate nothing more than taking a vintage home and using their skills and experience to turn it into a mesh of classic and modern styles.

Living a more sustainable lifestyle starts at home. Bamboo floors and panels can be a part of that process.

In today's more eco-centric world, the word "sustainability" gets thrown around a lot. But what does it mean?

Bamboo flooring on basketball courts offer upgrades in flexibility, durability and even visual beauty over traditional maple and beech wood.

The basketball court is one of the most sacred playing surfaces in all of sports.

Bamboo floors and panels can be a beautiful enhancement to most any office environment.

The old way of thinking about design as a system of function over form has almost disappeared over the past 20 years or so, as people realize they can achieve both ends at the same time.

Bamboo is a beautiful and diverse alternative to traditional building and design materials.

Whether you're a contractor or a DIYer, the type of materials you use in your next construction or home design project will be an important consideration.
