[front view] Eco-Friendly Design: The Bamboo Chair by Dutch designers Tejo Remy and René Veenhuizen Using long-established Asian plaiting methods in combination with modern Dutch design techniques, here's a chair that is made from bamboo.
Corkscrew Vine (Vigna caracalla)Beautifully exotic, with a fragrance like jasmine, this plant was originally discovered in Venezuela. Corkscrew-shaped buds open to flowers in lovely shades of violet, pink, yellow and cream.
Exotic flowers like these don't have to be limited to tropical gardens. A vigorous perennial vine that climbs via tendrils, the passionflower is a conversation piece. Photo by Evan Leeson thanks to and via Hill
