Update by user Dec 15, 2014

The issue has been resolved to my satisfaction. However, I stand by my original complaint and review of the product. Luckily I didn't install any of it or things may have been different.

Original review posted by user Dec 04, 2014

We bought Bellawood Bronze Ultra-Strand Bamboo from Lumber Liquidators.This Bellawood Bronze Ultra-Strand Bamboo is not what you think it is.

While it is true that is a solid hardwood, the grain pattern is printed on the surface like a cheap laminate. Perhaps some would not find a problem with that, most I'm sure would expect the beauty of a natural bamboo finish, especially at a premium price, not some printed pattern like a cheap $.69 laminate. The printing is of such poor quality and noticeable, the "grain" repeats itself precisely every 47 1/4". I returned this fake to this store and got "whacked" with a 20% restock.

Really? The store manager refused to look at my "evidence" and discounted the fact that is was printed, stating no Bellawood product is printed. Even discounting the fact that the "grain" repeats itself with exacting detail. It would be impossible in nature take a clump of shredded grass (bamboo is a grass), glue it together, then saw it into planks and have the same exact pattern on every board in every carton.

Funny how the in-store display sample and the take home sample are not "fake" and printed. Classic case of bait and switch.

What a joke.If you have this junk in your house, break out your tape measure and loupe and take a look for yourself.

Reason of review: Not as described.

Monetary Loss: $2200.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

I didn't like: Return policy, False advertising, Bait and switch.

Had an Experience with Lumber Liquidators?
