Ambient® | Creating Sustainable Spaces, One Product at a Time

Beauty by Naure, Quality by Design®. Shipping high quality building materials around the globe since 2005

Ambient® was founded in 2005 as one of the first companies in the world to specialize in strand woven bamboo flooring, which has an unrivalled reputation for durability, eco-friendliness and affordability. Ambient was also one of the first companies in the world to popularize sending flooring samples by mail, allowing homeowners to see and feel flooring products in the comfort of their own homes - which something we still do today!

Since those innovative early years, we've built a well-deserved reputation for the quality of our products and the integrity of our people, so it's no surprise that Ambient is the preferred brand of the world's leading architects, builders and designers (and homeowners like us a lot too!). Since our early days, and at the request of our customers, we've expanded our product lines to offer more than just flooring. We're glad you found us! If you've been wondering where to buy bamboo flooring or other reliable, high quality and environmentally-friendly building products, look no further.
