Why handmade bamboo furniture is the future

Why handmade bamboo furniture is the future

Personalize your home or garden by including pieces of beautiful handmade bamboo furniture.

When designing a new interior scheme, it’s important to be on top of current trends, such as the ever- increasing popularity of natural bamboo living room set, which are ideal for both inside and out.  The pale colour of the material and simple style can add a unique touch to your home, garden or terrace.

When we think of handmade furniture it conjures up quality, history and to be honest expensive one-off pieces, whereas today the trend is more towards fast furniture and flatpacks.

Yet, anyone who is looking for originality and quality knows that a handmade piece of furniture never goes out of fashion. A timeless classic never loses its appeal and will work with almost any style on the planet – this is our vision for NorthbyNorth.  Our luxury outdoor furniture can add a unique touch to a home terrace and if furnishing a commercial space, such as a restaurant or bar, it can create a comfortable cozy atmosphere, the invites people in and makes them want to return.

NorthbyNorth creates handmade Danish designed furniture in Vietnam, where our bamboo is grown, harvested and treated. We are passionate about keeping the artisan skill of creating handmade furniture alive.  We’re proud of the craftsmanship and attention to detail employed on every piece of our furniture and strive to create beautiful pieces that will enhance your home or business for many years to come.

Here are just some of the reasons why we are strong advocates of handmade furniture:

Handmade furniture is sustainable

NorthbyNorth’s natural furniture is made by local artisans and are created using only environmentally friendly products. Bamboo grows faster than other types of wood, and grows back much faster after it has been cut.  Secondly, the longer bamboo grows, the stronger it gets. That´s why NorthbyNorth only uses mature bamboo to make the extremely strong bamboo terrace furniture. This is also why bamboo tables are much stronger and longer lasting than other wooden tables.

It benefits the locals

All of our bamboo comes from bamboo plantations located in Vietnam. In addition, our factories, where the furniture is produced, are located close to these plantations. Local Vietnamese workers are employed in all of our factories, ensuring local jobs for local people and guarantees all of our bamboo garden furniture is of a consistently high quality.


As mentioned briefly, our high-quality outdoor furniture is designed by a highly talented and experienced Danish furniture design team, who create Scandinavian inspired pieces that would be equally at home in Denmark, Sweden or Spain. It is our vision to create handmade natural furniture instead of pieces of mass-produced furniture. This is how our bamboo furniture store can offer a range uniquely designed high quality bamboo furniture for sale.

As bamboo aficionados, NorthbyNorth understands the precious qualities of the material, a view shared by those who are interested in the individuality handmade furniture.  No piece of bamboo is the same, creating an interesting relaxed boho feel.

There is no doubt in our mind that handmade is the future…
