We were over visiting at John Kelly's shop on Franklin Street and he took the time to show us his new bamboo furniture collection called the Tau Series. Very sleek, with a fine bamboo veneer that doesn't look like the cheesy bamboo of yesterday, he told us that he was so excited by the material he wanted to try it.

It may become a national hit for this Tribeca local. The Tau Series is built as beautifully as John's other collections, but is the most affordable because bamboo carries a lower price point (Hey, but this ain't Ikea). It's already been picked up by Drew and Sina over at Design Public, where the bed is $1700-$2600, the mirror is $550 and the low chest is $1900. The entire collection has 8 pieces.
