Whether you are
looking for something sophisticated, contemporary, or fun and whimsical, BambooGems helps you create a unique heirloom-quality table that's the perfect fit for your space. BambooGems is a green innovative concept in bamboo furniture manufacturing that allows for a wide variety of shapes, styles and finishes that are suitable for your home, office or workplace. Made right here in the USA.
The BambooGems system officers a myriad of options, coupled with unmatchable quality, price point, and speed of delivery. BambooGems are made to last, known for their beauty and durability, with Green Eco-friendly Materials and waterborne finishes.
Created by Ray Culin and Janis Colella, BambooGems is a division of Culin & Colella, Inc., an established architectural woodworking company in Mamaroneck, NY (www.culincolella.com).
Ray Culin and Janis Colella have spent much of their life surrounded by wood, and together bring a lifetime of experience to designing and building furniture. When their core business, designing and building high end kitchens, libraries and related millwork was affected by the slowing economy, it was an opportunity to dive into a dream that Ray Culin had since 1993. He envisioned a quality furniture system that allows for a variety of designs and color possibilities, made any size, to fit your space and personal needs and all at a reasonable price. The tables, with their modular construction and myriad of shapes and details, resemble faceted gems, hence coining the name BambooGem, early on. “When we began using the bamboo material, it was immediately evident that it was a perfect match for the concept”, says Janis Colella, “it has beautiful edges, and is 100% solid and eco-friendly. It is even stronger and more stable than wood, a rapidly renewable resource, which grows in only 5 years”.
The existing designs demonstrate just how many ways there are to interpret this concept; from serious and understated, to whimsical and fun. It is appealing to designers and architects, as well as homeowners alike.
Their new venture, making custom bamboo tables, is proving to be an intriguing concept in furniture manufacturing, which is done competitively, right here in Mamaroneck, New York. “We are currently producing some very exciting designs, as a result of our customer’s needs, utilizing the BambooGems system”, says Ray. “We are still discovering more ways to use the mortise and tenon joinery, including making stools, benches with backs, and even a coat rack”.
