Bamboo Tension Rod from Umbra

Bamboo Tension Rod from Umbra

Sometimes we get weary of shiny things like chrome, craving a natural, grounding element instead. So for us, this bamboo veneer tension rod is a novel and refreshing departure from the typical shower tension rod...

Available from Umbra and designed by Luciano Lorenzatti, this $37 rod is available in natural (pictured) and espresso. The downside to tension rods is that rings don't always slide easily across the tension juncture. But it could be that you're only needing to slide the curtain across the continuous part of the rod. The usability caveat aside, we can envision the natural colored shower rod in a bathroom with lots of natural light and creamy whites. Lovely.

Has anyone tried this tension rod?
