About the Designer
Linda Karenza United States
Linda Karenza currently resides in Seattle Washington and spends time in the winters at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Those times recharge her batteries and reinvigorate her creative self. Linda says that it's the hot, lazy days in Mexico that bring out her passions for life and design. Linda studied Fashion Design at Washington State University and spent the first part of her career in a women's clothing retail operation. She helped launch a version of the 'swabbie' bell bottom jeans back in 70's and spent time as a buyer, merchandiser and part of the new product development team. Aside from Interior Design projects, Area rugs have been another interest of hers and designing loose flowing contemporary patterns has resulted in elegant pieces in wool and silk that are hand knotted in Nepal. With all of the options for tables in both design and wood type, she surprisingly chose the simplest of forms and a unique wood type. The use of bamboo took months of research to be able to settle on the specific species call Moso. Not only is it very hard and dense, it is Panda friendly as it is one of the species that is not part of their diet. The fact that bamboo is one of Earth's most sustainable resources was the driving force behind Bamboogle's use of it. To complement the intriguing grains of bamboo which tend to give a symmetrical and clean-lined look, she gave the Bamboogle tables a softly tapered but strong leg with a lighter scale side rail and top. She is currently working on new eclectic designs to fit a smaller niche in marketplace.

Gorgeous, affordable coffee table
Simon from Seattle, WA – Verified Buyer
Easy to put together. Solid bamboo table (not particle board). Nicely polished and easy to put together. The only problem is that the surface is very scratchable. Already have small cuts on it after just a week of use from my aluminum macbook air.

It looks nice but does chip easily. We have dogs and are pretty rough on things so we didn't want to spend a lot of money and this works well. The joints loosened up after a while and need tightening. It's actually real bamboo wood, not that compressed wood stuff, so it hasn't warped and the scratched at pretty easy to hide with a wood pen or marker. It's a pretty good table but a doubt it will last more than a few years.
Well made - gets the job done

This is a solid, well made coffee table and is great value for the price. It's sleek and overall quite attractive. Good purchase

I finally found the perfect coffee table---this one! This baby is made of solid wood, and you can see that it's sturdy and made with care. I will admit that it was a little tricky to assemble, but with my husband's help we got it done in 20 minutes. It was well worth the extra $ for something that was solid and it will last many, many years. Modern, beautiful, sturdy, good size, FIVE STARS!
