Before we begin, let’s clear something up. Bamboo is not a tree! It is the fast growing grass on the planet and it is a perfect replacement for trees because it has an extremely short growth cycle and a very high carbon dioxide exchange rate. There are over 1200 documented species of bamboo. A mature grove of bamboo sends up new shoots every year and these new shoots reach their full size in just a couple of months. Some can even grow up to 47 inches within 24 hours and can reach over 100 feet in height within 60 days. This short growth cycle makes it a perfect replacement for our slow growing forests that are being steadily cut back. It also provides erosion control when other plants are washed away.


  • Bamboo is a great plant for individuals concerned with a green environment. There are some 1500 different species that are native to every continent except Europe.
  • Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on this planet. It has been recorded growing at an amazing 47.6 inches in a 24 hour period.
  • Bamboo is a vaible replacement for wood. It can be harvested in 3-5 years versus 10-20 for most softwoods. It can out yield pine 6 to 1 in biomass production.
  • It is also one of the strongest building materials with a tensile strength of 28,000 psi. To help give you an idea how much this is, mild steel measures 23,000 psi.
  • Bamboo is a crucial element in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A grove of bamboo releases 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. Because of this, planting bamboo is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and help fight global warming.
  • It is a great soil conservation tool. It greatly reduces erosion with a sum of stem flow rate and canopy intercept of 24%. This dramatically reduces rain run-off, preventing massive soil erosion and making it very earth friendly.
  • Bamboo can also tolerate extreme conditions that most plants cannot. It was actually the first plant to re-green after the atomic blast in Hiroshima in 1945.
  • Bamboo can be eaten (new shoots), made into fiber for clothing, it can be used in concrete reinforcement, it can provide great livestock feed with the foliage being up to 22% protein, it can be machined into numerous forms of lumber, etc. It might be easier to compile a list of what bamboo cannot be used for than what it is used for.

The movement of the Humanization of Pets has gained a ton of attention in the last few years and we would like to think that our Bambu Pet Hammock is one of the very first pieces of pet furniture. Our designs are different from the majority of “pet furniture” that is presently available on the market. The majority of are pet size replications of human beds and sofas, or they are just the plain old cushion plopped on the floor adding no interior design value to the customer’s home. I am the designer and founder of Pet Lounge Studios and am a professional furniture designer with a degree from the Savannah College of Art & Design. With that said, I approach all of my designs from the perspective of a furniture designer first and foremost.
Our Kickstarter project is a way for us to create brand awareness and value on an international level. The goal of our project is to bring our products to life by interacting with our backers and inviting them to participate in the entire manufacturing process with regular updates and the creation of an exclusive manufacturing video documentary. This will start by bringing them deep into the bamboo forests of mainland China to harvest the raw bamboo for the production of their products! We will also explain the “green” aspect of bamboo and the story behind our brand. Our hope are that this will go viral on the internet and create the demand for our unique products.

Welcome to the PET LOUNGE STUDIOS Product Development Blog!

PET LOUNGE STUDIOS aim is to provide consumer products that stimulate the imagination and straddle the border between pets and humans. This distinction of what is for us and what is for our pets has been redefined, and may make you a little jealous. Pet Lounge Studios is a green, eco-friendly manufacturer of Modern Luxury Pet Furniture & Accessories.

The purpose behind the PET LOUNGE STUDIOS blog is to educate the consumer on the design and development processes involved in bringing our products to the market. We want to give our readers a chance to voice their thoughts and opinions while contributing to the unlimited possibilities of going green with pet furniture.

We will post images of conceptual sketches, prototypes, images and videos of our overseas factories, the manufacturing process starting with the harvesting of the raw bamboo from deep within the forests and all the way through to the packaging. I promise you, it will be a very exciting journey!

Manufacturing Process

In March 2008 we arranged a trip to the Bamboo capital of the World, China. We traveled out to the countryside with a former contact, and friend, I had met on one of my previous trips and began working on the manufacturing of the BAMBU COLLECTION. It was a very exciting and successful trip. Below is a slideshow which documents our trip and the production of our products. Hope you enjoy!
